at a garage, or estate sale,
I buy them!
Brings back memories of grade school and doing crafty things.
I also just like the look of their all metal construction.
squirreled away somewhere.
But moving on...
Don't you love the bit of rust and age patina on this red handled pair?
I have used all of these for cutting at one time or another,
when other scissors have gone missing around the house.
One pair made it into an assemblage tag I created, that was printed in Somerset Studio's "Fearless" issue.
My thesis was,
"Being fearless is,
having never used bee's wax before,
deciding it was a good fit with metal."
I was pleased that the editor "got" my idea and found some room on a page to print my art!
but some rules can be broken,
where no one gets hurt--
Some interesting, new things are explored
and amazing things happen.
What do you compulsively collect?
