For the taking...

I was doing a little cleaning today (very little, trust me) and I came across these porcelain tabs I made approximately 300 years ago. I think I had originally made them for necklaces but I haven't used them in years. Instead of tossing them in the jar of reject pieces (it is a very full jar, mind you) I thought I would give them away to some super crafty, creative person. There must be someone out there who can do something interesting with them, even if it is just sticking one on your dog's collar. As you can see there is a variety of colors, some shiny, some unglazed - 28 in total. Just leave a comment on this post and I will enter your name in a drawing to be held on Wednesday, December 24th at noon (eastern time). Thanks for helping me to destash! :)

ME! ME! ME! I'm waving my arms as your reading this and by now they are falling off...
I would put ribbons on them and hang them on my Christmas tree.
They are like most of the ornaments I have now.

Oooo, those are very cool! I would love to work them into something. Would they make tinkling sounds if I hung them on me for decoration?

These are gorgeous ... inspiring. Sigh. I never win anything. But if I DID win, I would only take one. And give the rest to everyone else who posted.

Oh, these beautiful tiles remind me of a visit with my partner to his boyhood home of Doylestown, PA. There we visited Henry Mercer's Fonthill and the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works. It was magical!

I would make sometime for my sweetie out of these tiles!

Sharon said...

I meant to say, I would make something, not some time. (Freudian slip?)
