Quirky Tablescape

Thought I'd share a simple tablescape I threw together a couple of weekends ago on short notice. Earlier this spring I received some cool vintage hair clips and curler rods and decided to incorporate them in the place settings....yep, this post is entitled "Quirky Tablescape", after all!
Love 'em!

(I'm actually thinking these would also be cool on a Christmas tree holding some vintage photo's or ornaments!)  For now, they will be wine charms!
 The clips were used to hold the napkins

I used some old file drawer dividers as "chargers" for a little industrial feel.

Love the white, burlap and tarnished silver together...

 I used a photo of each guest at their place setting.  Since my guests were all relatives, it worked well since I had  photo's of everyone.
They weren't surprised by my junky, quirky table!

Linking up today to Faded Charm - a great blog!

Etching made easy!

Hello!  It's Monday and time for a weekend project review!
 I decided to try my hand at etching.  Sweet Melissa and I took a class a couple summers ago, and I'd never tried it since.  I found some glassware at the thrift store, and realized if my idea didn't turn out, hey, I wouldn't be "out" alot of money. 
These are the glasses I found.  Aged to perfection.
After taping off the desired area for my "design" (and I use this word lightly) I added various letters, symbols and numbers from my scrapbooking stash.  No particular order, but I tried to space them about the same distance apart.
Once the stickers were on, I followed the directions on the Armor Etch Cream. The cream was applied very thick as recommended.
Like I said...put on quite thick.
Left on for about a minute, and washed off the cream in warm water...I love the way they turned out - none are the same!
They are perfect for a cocktail or an ice cream sundae - I'm lovin' them so much, I may try to do more!
