Altered What?

This was so much fun. When I was at the flea market last week I saw a cute jewelry holder that was altered. It was originally a mug holder and because I knew the vendor, she wouldn't sell it to me for $20. She said to get one at the thriftstore and paint it. So today I went to Goodwill and found this brown and green coffee mug holder for $2 and I painted it white, distressed it, and added the ribbon and of course all my necklaces and bracelets and voila a jewelry rack for all my beads and buttons. What have you altered lately?

Oh how darling . I love objects to hang things on even in my studio -- seems like sometimes want to decorate rather than clean up and organize - Currently have a wire mannequin I love ,it is red , a holder for cards , tags and open cute baskets and boxes to display my trinkets in , Hub is wondering now about my glass jar fetish -- love to save them and see the beads and ribbons -- Almost ready to ship ,
looking for the right box -- HUgs
