"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories.
Some take us forward, they're called dreams."
Welcome to the eighth Time Travel Thursday linky party at the Brambleberry Cottage!
Are you ready to share your fondest memories, grandest dreams,
and most creative projects? Great!
Then, let's get this party started!
The Yankee and I found this plain glass block—with nine indentations—at a
local thrift store for 99 cents. It was in perfect condition
with no chips or cracks.
Completely unsure of its original purpose, we bought it and took it home.
That thrift store visit was on the heels of the project where we used this
wonderful vintage beadboard to transform this...
Never being ones to throw away perfectly good, vintage salvage scraps,
we went to work measuring our little glass block. We decided to make a
decorative box for it, out of the beadboard leftovers
from the project mentioned above.
In no time, there was a beachy beaded-board box
to house our little glass block.
Say that three times fast. ; )
When the mirror was cut for the project above, there were two smaller pieces
left over, which, of course, we kept.
During a trip to Lowes—where the mirror had been purchased—
we had a piece cut out of one of our mirror leftovers
to fit inside this newly constructed box.
I knew the mirror would provide the perfect reflective
qualities for the project.
With the addition of nine votives, we created a coastal
candleholder for seaside décor.
It was a simple way to turn plain to pretty. ; )
