Happy MiStakes

So, as I was working on some things this week, I sort of had a little mishap with these shapes here,...



They just didn't come out the way I wanted them to. 

But they're silver.  Silver's not cheap. 

Less expensive than it was about 8 to 10 months ago maybe, but it's still a pretty penny.

And, I didn't feel like setting them aside until a later time either.

Nope, for some reason, my hands just kept going and the ideas flowed and here's what they became.



Rugged, mishappen pieces of silver,....like that of an old spur perhaps, or a bridle.

So, these became "Horseshoe Pass".

Living here in the 'Wild West' can really spur your imagination.

No pun intended!  



What happy mistakes have you made recently? 

Or, what's your best-ever happy mistake?

Please share it with us!

Until Next Time,

Peace, Love and Letting It Flow!

Cheers,
~Shel~

P.S. - Did any of you happen to catch my little 'MiStake' in the blog title today? 
Or is it a mistake,...it's kinda like the name of my company.  ;-)

  1. They look great... Love the name and the pairing with turquoise. Not only a good save but perhaps one you might repeat?!

    p.s. and either the robots are getting smarter or I'm losing it, but are the moderation characters getting harder to read lately on blogger sites??

  11. I know that they started out as something you hadn't envisioned, but I saw no MiStakes in that. You really did an awesome job forming them into something else and transforming them into what they apparently yearned to be!
