I took it home, peeled off the photo in the pendant, dug out our atlas and traced a circle around Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty location on the map, using the old photo as a pattern. (I have visions of my husband holding up the atlas the next time we go to Manhattan and peering through a perfectly cut hole where the Statue of Liberty should be!) Then I popped it into the pendant and stuck it on a chain.
oops. how did that cute little dress that I just made for little Loralei get in here? :)
I had been on the look out for a pendant ever since I had seen this idea at an art show. Their version was $40, and I just couldn't justify that. The fun part is, you can cut out any place you want. (a location of a favorite family trip, where you were born, where you would like to visit, where your anscestors came from etc.) So the next time you pass by an inexpensive pendant~snatch it up and think of the possibilities!
By the way, Jane also models an old Navy thrift store top that I bought, as well as an Express belt. (The total came to less than $5). Have a great day my fabulous followers!
