Something for almost nothing!

I did a little crafting on Friday! I am happy with how it came out, that is not always the case. As you can see I made a container to hold some flatware. I did not actually make the container, it is a tin coffee can.

This is the above mentioned coffee can. My mother saves them for me.

I ripped a few pages out of a book I bought just for this reason. It was a bargain book. I did feel bad about tearing pages from a book that an author poured their her heart and soul into, but what was I to do? I really like the look of torn pages on craft projects.

The bird image is from Country Living. It is just recently that I have been able to part with my Country Living magazines. I tear out the pages I like and then give them to my Dad. He then gives them to a friend who has an antique shop who puts a few together and sells them. I am not sure what he asks for them, but my house is cleaner and that makes me happy.

Thanks for visiting!
