Check out my booty!!!

I feel like all I have done is work lately, morning until night. Not that I am complaining, but my "soul" really needed some inspiration. I ran out a little each day, Wednesday and Thursday and came up with these goodies, mostly from Scarlett Scales. The bust is a male, yes I know. I decided he is going to just have to get in touch with his feminine side. I plan to make collage necklaces and hang them on him (and of course, a star). I need to come up with a name for him- any suggestions? Maybe it could be a contest, hmmm. . .


The plates are for my dining room. The butterflies are old candy molds (I love these- wish I picked up the rest) and the big pin is holding old steel cut buckles, most likely from shoes.

And while I can't share these things with you, here is something I can:


The new JBS stamp for the March kit - it made my heart jump when I opened the box. So many ideas for how to use this one. Can't wait to play!!

I am HOPING to get my studio cleaned up and rearranged tomorrow (to get these new goodies in). I found a new piece I want to work in as well - keep trying to convince hubby this is part of the creative process for me! I will take some photos if I ever finish!!

Pin It!

Thanks for the insight to what fuels your creativity. So inspiring!

Barb said...

Just looking at your new goodies makes me feel calm.

Can't wait to see what you create to dress up the bust.

I think you should name him Rhett(sp?) since he came from Scarlet Sales. I love my Junque box..even though my little ornament was broken, I love the rest!! Oh and my stamps are SO fun!

Christy said...

Cool finds, Jenni! And that stamp is to die for... LOVE it! Need to hurry and sign up for the March kit before they sell out again.Have a great weekend! :)

Belinda Hall said...

mmmm....I think you should call your new gentleman Quin, as in a manne-quin ! Always want to go hunting in the antique shops after I see your finds. Love that mirror. Wish I could get your yummy monthly kits, but postage to South Africa is a nightmare. Billy

Wow...such wonderful inspirational stuff. I LOVE the male bust...I think he will be a GREAT source of inspiration and new ideas.

The stamp is YUMMY...can't wait to get my hands on it...

Has anyone told you lately that you TOTALLY rock?!/!?! Well...you do...and you help me to capture my life and record all the important memories with such creativity. Thanks for all your hard work. Blessings!

Jenni,

What pretty things! I so wanted to go to our next door's town square this past weekend...nothing but antique stores...unfortunately no time :(
Nice to see your's :)

Sherry said...

He looks very masculine...but with jewels on, perhaps he needs a masculine name as well. How about Chester? Kinda goes with his chest too!

stephaniehowell said...

hahaha...chester..love it.

or perhaps buster, since he is after all a bust. i know i'm a dork.

lovely stamp, lovely finds..and you,as always, are wonderful!

Jeanette said...

What lovely booty! I wish I could find booty like that. Especially the mirror!

I like Rhett for a name. Very clever.

And the stamp looks awesome. Looking forward to it. I have been having so much fun scrapping from your kits...they just seem to fall into place!

forestsister said...

wonderful treasures!

Cheryl Waters said...

Love the new stamp. Oh my . . . oh my!!!

How about 'Vince' for your man-a-quin (get it?) Anyhow, I like the name Vince. Just a thought.

Thanks for sharing. Again, I love that stamp!

Cheryl Waters said...

PS ~ Congrats on your new goodies. Forgot to say that. Those are some awesome finds. So glad you got some 'you' time.

Michelle said...

Oooh, I love that stamp!! And all your treasures, too. :)

You're on a roll! You've made me want to go antiquing but then again, I never seem to find the goodies that you do. It's always fun to see what you come up with.

Hi Jenni,

Just signed up for a membership...cannot wait to get the March kit! A friend of mine has been getting your kits for a while and after seeing hers decided I can't pass them up! In fact, I just posted on my blog about how much I love your kits(I bought the November one)!

BTW...can we get a sneak peak of March? This waiting is killing me :)

All this waiting time for peaks of March is torture, when do we get a glimpse of whats in store????
