I Can Tell Your Fortune!

OOPS! Sorry, I really can't! ....

I just thought you wouldn't want to see yet another title about "ridiculously easy photo/picture holders"

....but that is what it is...probably the "most ridiculous", no, I meant to say "most ridiculously easy", but I guess "most ridiculous" works too.



It all started on a lonely lane off the wonderfully named "Hunt Club Road". There once lived an antique furniture restorer...now there was just an Estate Sale of the antique furniture restorer's stuff.



Meanwhile not far away was the Estate Sale of a vintage game collector. Patiently waiting there was a wonderful set of Fortune Teller cards.



In my mind {twisted that it is} a match made in heaven...



Joined together by twisty wire...the twisting of which...I had honed my skills with the previous wire twisting sessions here and here. At this point I can twist wire around a Sharpie pen with the best of them!



Off the newly joined casters and fortune cards went to the Grayslake Flea Market for their honeymoon and a little "new home" hunting with me as their broker! After all it is An All*Fair Game!

Update: The Flea Market is over. I can report that all of them will be moving to Texas together and will be living happily ever after.....

  15. I love your twisted mind and fabulous twisted ideas. Great post and blog! Lots of ideas. What did I do this past weekend? Went to one flea market...not much luck. And a house sale. At the house sale I bought a wonderful old cat bird house. So cool! And pheasant feathers. The lady was also selling plants, which we bought to plant at the new chicken roost. Need to water, water, water because it's hot, hot, hot! Have a sweet week.

  18. Those fortune teller cards are just amazing...in addition to the ones that say "fortune", "love" and "travel" is there one that says "junk" or "blog"? If only!

  26. Is there anything twisted wire and some imagination can't do? I think not.
