Good morning, friends!!!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that this beginning to your week will end up being a perfect one!

Before I introduce the next project from my treasure finds, I want to thank my friend Ohhh Snap.  She'd left me on her blog the "Cherry On Top" blog award which I picked up when I returned from vacation.  I should have mentioned it sooner but I've been working  to catch up on things in general and, so, kept putting it off.  I have added Ohhh Snap's name to the "Cherry On Top" award listing on my sidebar.  Again, thank you Ohhh Snap and I'm honored you passed this award on to me.

Okay, now let's see what I've done with something else from my treasure finds; this time using the rings:

I chose to put several of them together and I came up with this (and, NO, it's not a mini-picture frame; although it could be):

I decided it would be the cutest little matching recipe holder for the mini recipe box and cards I made to go along with it!!!  This one:

And, just in case you're thinking it doesn't seem to have much room for writing...  well, if you can't fit everything on the front of the card, flip it over and use the back -- LOL!!!

I really like this one!  Hope you do too!

Well, I'm off to do some visiting, then get started on that little embroidery project for Queen Pam, and on to do some more crafting!!!

I'll be seeing you soon!

You are just delightful, and such a cute project idea. Love the "flip it over "comment!
I actually seen those rings and thought a great way was to use smalls pictures or face shots to put on a project like a memory box.
Have a great day sweetie!

I just returned from my first swarm this weekend, what a great time it was.

I got your sweet comment on my blog and I did order my HTV online. I got the glitter vinyl from www.craftvinyl.com. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

great to re-use items! did you use a spring clip in the back to keep the recipe card in? Or a little cloths pin?

Unique and fun as always!

Great project! And you are so welcome for the award, seriously, your work is always inspiring and gorgeous :D. Don't worry about punctuality on my account though... I am easily distracted and sometimes it takes me a while to get to things.

On a serious note, I was diagnosed with ADD at the age of 50. And even though I can't take the medication anymore, it helps so much to know it's just what it is and not a failing or lack of effort on my part. There's a really interesting "article" on NPR about ADD/ADHD and how it can be manifested so differently in girls.
