Fun Finds, Fun Ideas, and My First Necklace

Fun Finds: Old croquet set.
I mean reeeeally old!

This is a unique one.
Anyone know what it is for?
And how about this French Wine Bottle opener?
Here is a fun idea.

How about making a sign for Dad's Workbench?
Maybe "TOOLS" and hang it from a tri-square?
Here are some 'new' watches on the left.
And this is a necklace in the works.

And another I'm working on....

And the first one I finished!!!

A simple key with an old clip on earring with rhinestones.

Thanks for coming by, and taking time to leave a comment!

hi BJ~..
nice ideas one and all..
the "odd" looks like either an old wind up mantle clock key..
or maybe a jewelry box key..
good luck!!
warmest hugs..

For what kind of key is this?....I will say either a jewelry box, or an old vanity case that was part of an entire suitcase set. Remember those old vanity cases? They were just for cosmetics and personal items a girl might need. We must have acquired a bajillion hands and arms when traveling, and remember, there was no such thing as luggage on wheels.
