Oops White Wednesday

Kathleen at Faded Charm is hosting yet another
WW today for us bloggers. I just love to see all the
whites that everyone comes up with each week.

What do you think of my little makeover project?

The original photo of this sweet lady even has a white
rose in her hair so I had to add one of my
tattered roses as well.

It started out as this clock body and I transformed
it into what you see above.
The glass was missing when I found it , but
it did still have the old metal clock face so I kept
that to decorate with.

now comes the oops...

I was messing around with it to shabby it up before taking it up to my booth and guess what happened??

the knob on the top fell off!!

I had glued it on with E6000 glue and thought that would hold it , but apparantly not. Now I am trying to figure out what to use or just leave it off, but I do like it there. Any suggestions?

Happy White Wednesday!

I can't help you with the knob decision, but I can tell you how much I love this, and how clever I think you are!
You are always finding ways of surprising me.

Very pretty, Sandi! I'm not sure what you can use to keep the knob on, maybe try different glues since they are for different surfaces. Sometimes good old Elmer's Glue works for me. Good luck!
