Repurposing is my life

I shopped at the Goodwill last week and found a few treasures, I promise you will be seeing them soon. I found  this little wire birdcage looking thing, it had a candle holder inside and grapes and leaves on it, I cut it all off with  my wire cutters. I also found an adorable owl necklace, I put the owl inside and used part of the chain to hang it and added more the hang the whole thing. As you can see I added lots of flowers and pearls, vintage laces from Lavish Laces etsy shop, I am a huge fan of hers lol. Plus I won these fabulous metal letters from my crafty twin CG, so I spelled owl across the top. I watch youtube videos, all the time actually lol, of tubeyoumaster and she did this little scroll with a piece of old bookpage,so I copied hers. My niece says its Harry Potters owl and thats his message lol.
I added some white paint to it, those are the pieces I cut off, I will probably used them elsewhere

This is with the owl inside, I shortened the chain later

This is with the lace and letters and some pearls added

I made this biggest flower on the cuddlebug





Here you can see the charms and the scroll
