Macro Monday #4





My Grandma was artsy and crafty before it was cool. She used to take these large jars and glue items all over them, just stuff from around the house I guess. Then she would spray paint them either gold or bronze. I'm not even sure when she made this one but I'm guessing the 60's just from what's on it. They are so much fun to look at because they are so detailed. I have one and my mom has a smaller one. At one time she also took a large ladies high-heel shoe and glued sparkly costume jewelry all over it, it's so pretty. My mom has it but I may have to smuggle it out of the house to get some shots of it. If you're up to seeing more Macros, go here.

These are great, and I'm glad you explained what they are because I would never have guessed! Thanks for stopping by my Macro Monday shots this week too.

Those are so nice. I too am glad you explained it. I was looking at it tilting my head, wondering. Very nice keepsakes.

What a clever idea... recently saw where someone took a large glass vase and filled it with stuff from around the house .. sort of a keepsake jar w/o a top

I used to know a woman who did the same thing. She found a shoe outside a club one night, half of a fairly stylish pair of high heeled um... sandals? (I don't know from womens' shoes, forgive me.) Anyway, there's this one shoe lying on the ground. No clue how it came to be there or where its mate might have gone (this wasn't the kind of shoe you could walk in one of even if you were so inclined). So what does she do? She glues beads all over it and presto! "Disco-Shu". Her latest (at the time) work of art.

I guess you had to be there.
