Redux: How do you like my shabby chic ornament Colosseum? Yea, it's so Greek. (giggle.) It was a junk store find, and it had been spray painted gold, was so dirty and dingy, and had no back on it. It didn't look like anything that could be useful. But, at the time time, I was specifically in search of a showcase for ornaments, so when I saw it in a junk pile, I thought, "Neat! That'll do! It's a tiny Parthenon!" So, I took it home, all the way from Mississippi, and cleaned it, painted it off-white hammered on a back and sanded back a little of that gold. Then, silly me, I realized it's not a Parthenon, it's a Colosseum. HA!
So far, I'm still playing with hanging vs. nesting. I added eyelet screws to hang, and I'll probably pad the back for safety against breakage, but I might just nest anyway. I mean, who doesn't want to nest on some level?
Well, there you have it. I haven't finished the sign yet, but I got it off the printer and it just needs glue and mojo. So, I couldn't call it the Parthenon, but I'm OK with that.
