Friday facets - Nescessity is the mother of invention

....... (just got the meaning of Frank Zappa´s "Mothers of invention" - Mütter des Fortschritts ?!
since I´m using my online dictionary a lot, and improving my english, I often have these "light bulb moments", It always sufficed to know the english name, never thought about the german translation. "Canned heat - Hitze in Dosen" ?! ..................ok, this doesn´t belong here at all.....

 As I need to bend my ear wires, and I like to have different hooks for different styles, I had to create some tools over time.

Here you can see some of my patched together -  tools, ...the last one is made of a darning mushroom

see others friday facets here and participate if you like!

Friday facets - Essigbaum - staghorn sumac

I´m sure all of you know this tree: In the 60´s you hardly were able to find a garden without this bush.

 Friends of mine cut one . I saw the beautiful colored grain, and crabbed a few branches.

 ..sanded and polished with olive oil


I have no idea what to do with these, maybe buttons, brooches, pendants, coasters for the doll house, ...a shim, when the chair has a wobble,  keyrings.....or just place it on the table as a mandala to enjoy the eye.


This is a new blog hop, created by Susanne Guirakhoo, if you like to join, share your friday facets.
