LovableLeftovers Found Art Object: Miss Muffet $50 on Etsy here

Etsy, the place known for handmade is also the place known for one of a kind gift ideas. That proves true with Connie Grier’s shop Lovable Leftovers.  Connie is an assemblage artist using found objects and fashioning them into art.   These cute and quirky sculptures would look great in your home or on your desk at work.

Connie Grier Sculpture

Pig Assemblage , $30

The best thing about assemblage art is many components are used – vintage items that would otherwise be overlooked in such a way, or broken discarded treasures of days gone by. Connie enjoys taking these lost objects and making them found again, just waiting for their new home. Most sculptures average prices range $30-$60, very reasonably.

Wafers Dog Sculpture from Etsy

Wafers Dog Sculpture, $60

Connie reuses goods and receives some supplies from her sister who is a scavenger of thrift boutiques. Behold, once the items are given to Connie they are transformed into something else.  Woodrow, below, consists of an old Naco Cadet Whisk – early brooms and brushes used for cleaning clothes or shoes.  Something like this may not be in use anymore, yet surely has a story to tell.

Woodrow: Editor’s Pick at $30 is fashioned from an old wood whisk and stories to tell.

Stella Divina Art Coaster

Veggie Label Makes for Adorable Coaster $14.99

 The labels and artistic process make them look design worthy.  As some labels are vintage, and some are upcycled from beer bottles–it shouldn’t be hard to find something unique for the special person on your gift list.   Prices range around $14.99 which make them effective little gifts for someone you love.  The best part?  They are heat resistant up to 200 degrees making them great for a hot cup of cocoa sitting on top.  Also waterproof so when you sit your beer on ’em they don’t get all messed up.  Gotta love ’em. The price is right and they are  handmade in the United States of America and no two are alike. This is a great eco way to keep tiles out of the landfill and encourage pieces of history embedded into your decor 🙂
