Our Etsy Team Gift Exchange was this week.

I decided to try something out of the ordinary for me, so with "Steam Punk" in mind and an empty chili sauce jar I went a bit crazy.

At first I thought I would just make it a pencil holder.

The more I thought about it the more I added.

There are actually three of my collages on here.
This is the bottom of the piece.

Then I thought of making it a flower pot and adding flowers.......
used copper wiring works really good!

Adding some old washers and bolts....This is what I ended up with.

It was so much fun watching this evolve into an actual bouquet :)

I will be choosing a name for my new Etsy Shop this weekend.
I will pick 5 and then choose 3 out of 5 and post them here for my readers to vote on.
I have many to choose from and I thank all of you for your help.
The winner will be posted the day after Thanksgiving.

I have lots of work to do. A new shop means a new Icon with a new business card and then I have to go set up my shop.

Gotta get busy!

It is fabulous indeed! I am the lucky person that got to take it home with me - now to find just the right spot to put it in and enjoy it!
