some new things for Etsy

I love to "repurpose" things and these are two examples. The Day of the Dead Wreath was solid color from Michael s. Got it half off, and made it into something a bit snazzier. We had it up on our Dia De los Muertos altar at our library celebration.

The mermaid came from Goodwill, a good source of raw materials!! She was a dull antique white, but I wanted to make her come to life. She is 24" long, and there are two original metal lined holes on the back so she can be positioned as one wishes swimming on your wall. I will be putting these up on my Etsy site, PenelopeBasset, sometime this weekend. Also looking for some good mailing containers to send them off. They don't quite fit into the pre-paid boxes this time!
