My Turn To Be Creative (part 2 - I made cute Angel Ornaments)
I made cute Angel ornaments for my family for Christmas.
They are made out of corks, floral wire, ribbon and little wooden spools.
I really like them because they kinda look flustered. Not perfect.
My parents bought us an apartment warming gift when they helped us move to the mid-west.
We didn't have any salt and pepper shakers so they found some for us, at an antique shop, that are shaped like ears of corn.
They are so cute, but they're probably old and the corks that were in the bottom of them were old and deteriorating.
It seemed like we looked everywhere for corks, Walnast, Home Depot, um...ok that's it.
Nathan looked online and found corks for sale and they were around 10 to 50 cents each, but to make it worth the company's while, your order had to at least be $10.00. And we weren't sure what size we needed anyway so we ordered about two dozen.
Turned out the best ones that fit were actually black rubber corks.
So, we had all these corks and nothing to do with them.
