Felt like a Party--

I've had one of those crazy busy weeks. 
Just taking care of 'life-like' situations...
I'll spare you the details. 

So today, I thought I'd take a break finally from it all and chill-ax by attending a party! 

The Nester is having a party. 
A Tassel Party. 

If you remember Donna's first Workshop series, 
getting your workspace ready, I created my first and only tassel. 
I was inspired to Tassel after seeing so many other great looking one's while visiting other 'spots' around the blogsphere. 

I'm sharing today at The Nester's party. 

(The Nester's tassels are so pretty) 
I don't really "do" pretty. 
To me pretty is... 
rusty, OLD, junky, repurposed, 
and makin' do. 

This is my little junky tassel. 
I used jute, a rusty washer, an old screen door spring, and a scrap piece of crocheted edging. 
I think it's beautiful! 
My Honey thought it was a tarantula! 
You can read the original story here. 

Make sure you visit other tassel party joiners. 

God Bless you 
Thanks for reading!

I love that you incorporated the washer. I just think that was such a clever way to re-use an item....oh and Happy Earth Day!

That is definitely the most original tassel I've ever seen! I like your idea of embellishing a tassel with different objects. I might not have thought of a screen door spring, but it works!

HEy, how did the tornado treat you? We have a lot of huge branches, the guys spent all day with a chain saw and we didn't get electricity until afternoon. It knocked out a garage window at my daughter's down the street and ripped the door off of their shed, and they lost a pear tree, but we are all fine! Lezlee
