Last week I posted that I was looking for new craft projects to keep me occupied during the colder weather. When UHM and I were out tasting apple cider and buying apples last week, we also stopped by one of our favorite antique stores, The Covesville Store. Like most 'antique' stores, it's a mish-mash of nicer, truly antique pieces mixed in with thrift-store-type items that aren't really worth all that much. While I was poking around in the store I found a box full of "vintage" cookie cutters and had an idea. I bought several of them and today got around to trying out my idea. Below is a picture of the result.
What do you all think? It's a cross between a wind chime and a mobile. If you saw it at a craft fair, would you buy it? What would you pay for it? Any suggestions on sprucing it up a bit? I have some other ideas for something similar but need to spend more time on the mechanics. Let me know what you think though.
