You can't always get what you want!

"You Can't Always Get What You Want"

But if you try sometimes... you get what you need!
I found these ceramic letters at a garage sale several months ago. They were intended for making your own movie titles for your home movies in the 50's & 60's! I wanted to do something special with them, but I had no idea what. So one day I was listening to the Stones as I was playing with these letters and all of a sudden I noticed that I spelled out "want" and the rest just came together. I adhered them to a piece of wood that I painted robin's egg blue and VIOLA! This piece is made completely of found and recycled objects, including the paint! I wish I had more letters... I could do this again and again. Now I have so many cool ideas... better get to those yard sales!
