Second on the second-now and then

Hello Everyone who calls in and thank you for your visit to Jumbled Crafts. I am joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth today to share a link to an old post and to update you on the project.

My original post is here in July 2013. I used one of the photographs on that post to make my new header and tile for Jumbled Crafts. Sorry to say that the plastic flowers suffered from weather damage and then dropped off their perch and fell among the plants. So time for an update I thought. For some reason or another we stopped drinking much milk so a big plastic container was out of the question. I used the smallest one you can buy at the supermarket and there was only one of those in our recycling. The key holder is still there and looks a lot more interesting with all the rust it has now.

In 2013

Before new flowers


My colour choices have changed and my choice of ways to add colour has too--my fingers are all blue now.

Hope you enjoy the old post

Don't forget to join us on the beach at Tag Tuesday and a couple more days with Letters /numbers at Try it on Tuesday

Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Lovely project Chrissie, I liked it back then and like it even more now, those rusty keys are gorgeous! Have a lovely Sunday! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Even before you mentioned how your color choices had changed, I thought how much better the new flowers looked. Maybe MY color choices have changed, too. I certainly like the new over the old, and of course, that includes the rusty keys and key holder. Since I didn't know you back then, this was a fun update. I even enjoy the new header.

    Thanks for sharing this second look on the 2nd.

  3. Amazing how we have changed as time goes bye, great show.xx [aNNie]

  7. Your garden art is so fun. You've given me some ideas for my Zensical garden.

  8. I never fought of using milk bottles before! Now you mention it...
    I think I love both versions of the flowers but the keys are so much nicer for being rusted!

  9. I love garden art and wow this was such a neat project-I never would have thought you could use plastic milk bottles to paint on. I loved your original post and how this was made-and I love it even more now-Love the colors and those rusty keys are the best!
    Happy second on the 2nd Kathy
