Fleur-de-lis Tags

These fleur-de-lis tags have been on a journey.



Earlier this summer I purchased a shelf, with the intention to sell it at one of my shows.  I loved the little fleur-de-lis design.  Well......



It did not sell in it's original gold tone finish.

It did not sell after I painted it white.




The other day, I was moving it out of my way, when I took another look, and, envisioned tags.

Bye, bye, fleur-de-lis shelf.  Hello, fleur-de-lis tags.

I removed the little fleur-de-lis.  I gave them a rusty, weathered, distressed white finish.




Then I added a hole, and, hemp string.




They make nice tags.

No, I did not toss the shelf.  I'm planning to redesign it.

See ya soon.
