Raven Cages and Valentine Vignettes

Remember this?

Well, it's now this:

From time to time, I change out the top notch by putting a paper macho ball over the original drawer pull.

Now that is quite a change! Out of the 'darkness'....tho I sure loved Poe's raven in it too. That's a neat idea to make the top look different. Cloches are such fun, and big statements in little packages, which is the best part.

hugs, Karen

That's just darling. Could you remind us how you made the wire cloches?

Sure can.

Here's a link to my blog. It should give you some idea how it goes together.

Ask questions too.

There's also a link to the original "inventor" that shows more steps.

Oh my goodness, Jeanne. I didn't think about that! Perhaps I should have covered up her *hoo hoo* with pink panties before I posted. After all, this is a PG forum.

I'll watch out for such brazenness in the future.

Cute 'Gurly-Girl' Valentine Vignette!

Love that 'Cloche/Cage' both ways...and so clever
how you camouflaged the knob... it gave it a total
'new personality'!

Jeanne...LOL - !

What a fun change, OA.
It's cool that you can get more than one use out of the cage.
Love that cool new knob!

OA, love the change using your wire cloche. So clever to cover the knob for different occasions. One would be pretty painted white too.

Wish I was staying home today. I would be playing to see if I could make one of these. You are such an inspiration.

Jeanne, your so funny!
