Challenge #38 'Anything Goes & Ribbon' Theme

While you are celebrating your Christmas holiday with family ( who is probably driving you a little crazy ) and unwrapping your presents ( hopefully you didn't get any coal in your stocking! ) take a momment and go over to Robin's Creative Cottage and link your blog up for a link up party...make sure to grab some of that egg nog first and a chocolate cookie ( before all the kids scarf them up ) ;)

I love my beads and snowflakes and considering it's 60 degrees outside and raining, this is going to be as close to snow this Christmas as I am going to get!            I love to recycle beads, I get them from thrift shops, yard sales. This was a necklace ( it's plastic ) and I just cut what I need from it and it actually came from my own junk drawer from when I was like 13 ( remember wearing chokers? I was quite the flower child )...OK so I hang onto items that I think can be used only took me ...what... 39 years and see, I found a use for it! LOL Oh you had to laugh at that didn't you? I don't mind; cause your laughing with me and not at me, trust me! there anyone that can relate with me too?           I am entering this into Really Reasonable Challenge anything goes and ribbon theme.

Can you imagine that work of art can be created from tires? What we have here is not only impressive but beautiful too; these are the creation of Belgian artist Wim Delvoye. These hand-carved car tires with their beautiful design and intricate patterns display the talent and patience that goes in the creation of these masterpieces. Impressive!
Cool and Creative Hand Carved Car Tires (15) 1
Seriously, if I could put these on my car, how cool would that be??

And my only Christmas request is to build back up my followers, I am hoping to have 25 by Christmas :)
