Not Exactly Mosaic Monday

I played a little bit yesterday...
You know those little tiny bits of scraps that are so precious
and delightful that we hang on to them?

Well, I copied Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet and used my
Sew Cherry scraps and some Ruby scraps that were sent to me
to treasure.... and wrapped them around some of my wooden spools.
Now I can really enjoy them!
It was much like another idea I saw on Make Mine Beautiful blog.
Painted wooden spools. I don't think there are any laws against that.
Add some paper and some little jewels and there you have it! Something to remember for Christmas.
Then I played with a little bit of Strawberry Fields...
 
Yummy colors!  But that's all I'm showing for now!

I remember visiting my Nana and she had a basket of old spools for us grandchildren to play with, I wonder what happened to them...ah wonderful memories! What a great idea for them too!
