Bits and pieces

This was one of those strange cases where you have a bit of this and a piece of that laying around for ages, you think about getting rid of it and then all of a sudden they come together so perfect you can't imagine why you hadn't thought of it before.

It started with this poor little candle holder which was once a lovely shabby white but has since been dyed by my red candle and then somehow it rusted...indoors.

There was also this little covered jar I bought at Goodwill months ago, made a creepy terrarium out of it, then didn't really know why I'd ever bought it.

Until I discovered that the jar sat perfectly into the candleholder and would make the ideal place to house the bits of glass I found in this junkpile on the family property in central Oregon. Yes, those are nails. Seriously.

All together now!

Shabby junk loveliness. :)

I know there is more glass bits to find out there so I like that I have room to grow and one of these days the jar will be full.
