Rusty beginnings……

rustycanningrimsI just can’t toss them out!  Over the years, these canning jar rims have been so helpful to me.  They have worked with me and protected my yearly harvest with out complaint.  I just couldn’t tell them they were old, ugly, and just too rusty to be of use to me anymore.  There had to be some way to give them a beauty makeover.  There has to be close to 50 of them now and it was past time I presented them with a solution!

While canning the salsa, yes I always get my best ideas while cooking LOL, a bright idea hit me.  I have gathered the supplies I will need; spray paint in two shades of green, steel wool, and a round wire pot screen.

wreathbeginningsI will let you stew on just what this makeover will turn out to be.  I have quite a bit of spray painting to get done while the weather is good, so keep checking in to see how this progresses………….. Cyn


About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
