Woof Woof






I have been playing around with some discarded slide mounts, thinking of different ways to upcycle them.

I added some cute scruffy terriers, from the same story set sourced from 'My Choice' published by Blackie books, c1950's. Backed with a metal brooch clasp they have a new life as wearable art.

Of course I kept one for myself.

These are now available in my Etsy shop.

Ohhh you're just so clever Tam, the little terrier dogs are the perfect choice to pop in those slide frames. Loveem!! By the way Mum LOVED what you'd done with the doilies when l got to show her the other day. Especially the lamp!! Thanks for sharing all your creativity with us.
