I love taking ordinary items and turning them into something beautiful.  It just fits with good stewardship of our world in recycling things whenever we can.  No, I didn't make this clock or the things below, but wanted to share their beauty.

I chose these pictures from things I have found across the internet and posted to my Pinterest board.  Don't know what that is?  Well, I didn't either at first.  It is a "virtual bulletin board."  One can collect the things you love and pin them to whatever category boards you set up.

So, if you'd like to see my boards and find out more, or if you'd like to explore more on these individual artists go to this link:   www.pinterest.com/coleenfranks

The specific board for these items are listed under "Altering Books and other things."

Lots more altered art there to see and explore.

I have an old globe. My wheels are turning.

I wonder if my sister would notice is I stole this out from under her wig?

Love this. Wonder if one of my musical friends can find me an old defunct violin.  Which one of these projects is your favorite?

A big thank you to Ronda Porter for helping me figure out how to post these from Pinterest. You're a blessing, girl.

These are great. I like the verdigris finish on the clock, the dress form, and the globe are top picks. The violin is nicely done, too.
