Spectacles

Another assemblage..........love making these but finding the boxes isn't all that easy. I had a pair of old specs which I glued to the bottom. She's wearing specs, too, but they are her own! The box is about 8 x 8 inches. Vintage ribbon made up the flower on top left with an old velvet leaf.  Click to enlarge.

Pat, I was just standing here the other day with a pair of old glasses in my hand. Thinking I should donate them, but knowing my odd prescription would probably not work for anyone else - then thinking I'll make art out of them "someday". You beat me to it. Maybe now I can throw them away. Hmmmm.... Janene

Love your "spectacles", and welcome back. I've been wearing glasses since I was six years old...and at that time they looked pretty much like those in your assemblage. Take care...Jackie

Love your assemblage boxes , have made a load of these myself. If I can make a suggestion , cigar boxes make beautiful assemblage boxes, covered with napkins or crackled. If you look on my blog you will see a lot of them. Love the steampunk horse too, so inventive!!
