As Spring Like as Rust Can Be

      This is the awesome stove door that I got last December as a part of the Junk Exchange sponsored by the magazine Flea Market Style.  It was truly the piece de resistance...I so loved it, I just didn't know what I would use it for, but, I did know that first my darling husband would need to reverse the door so that the front would show when the box was open.The other thing I needed was a back for the box.
Then my dh did the reversal this week AND I noticed this perfect, 8 by 8 ceiling tile in my garage ...
     With no more excuses, I've been gathering goodies all week to put together my "spring" theme shadow box.  I adore the heart shaped cookie cutter with the punched holes in the back, and now it is part of display. 

 I also used a rusty spring, 2 faucet handles, a small strainer, rick rack, old lace, glitter (yes, always glitter) great old graphics from Graphics Fairy, and even a great piece of scrap booking paper I have been saving for something special ...

Here are a couple of close up shots of favorite bits.  I made tiny eggs to put in a 'nest' at the point of the cookie cutter.  I also added a glittery 'joy' sign in the corner, as in, "What is more joyful than spring time?"

Thanks for stopping by for a visit ... and hope you have a fun and crafty spring time this year.
