Wood Laser Cuts

A couple months ago while looking at Sherry Goodloe's blog, she was showing a wonderful necklace she had made and on it were little playing cards.    I fell in love with the necklace, of course, and wondered where she got those little playing cards she used.   When I asked her about them, she related that she had purchased them on an etsy shop called  PorkChopShow.   So I went there and asked him about the playing cards so he made up some so I could purchase them.   When I got them, I was so thrilled with them that I went to his etsy shop to see what else he had.   He does all kinds of items.   I got some flapper girls, skeleton keys, typewriter keys, wheels, canning jar labels and some Brownie cameras.   He has a lot of other things which I will eventually get but am very happy for right now.   A great way to see what all he does is to look at what he has sold, i.e., his sales category.   I am not affiliated with him at all........just a happy customer and wanted to show some pictures of what I got.     And for those of you who know me, know that I love embellishments of all kinds and always on the lookout for them.   And, of course, you can drill holes in these to use as charms which I am going to do for some of them.  

Here are some pictures of a "Garage Sale Lot" that I purchased to just get a sampling of what he does.   It boils down to what he calls his "seconds" or "rejects" from doing his orders.   They looked pretty good to me and I liked seeing the variety of items.

Here are a some pictures of the other items I ordered in sets.

Well, it was another beautiful day here.   Hope it was a great one for you.   While I was out doing errands, of course, I had to stop at a couple thrift stores.   Found a few items which will come in handy.........always love finding Monopoly and Scrabble games for $1.00.  

As always, wishing you the best that life has to offer.


  1. Wow! Will deffo have to check out the pork chop! lol! Those ARE fantastic little cards, :), and I love everything else you got! Woohoo!

  2. Looks like you were just as excited as I was the first time. LOL I use my little manual hole punch drill to make tiny holes in my pieces for the necklaces I make. Tim has designed one that is very similar to the one I have if you wanted to wait for his to start shipping :) I bought the drill to punch metal originally and then found it to be just perfect for the laser wood cuts!

    Have fun with all your new ephemera. xoxo

  3. I bought the garage sale lot a few years back and they still smell like smoked meat!
    That is the only downside of the laser cut items! Wearing them as jewelry, you have to take the time to seal them all a few times because the smell still comes through on hot and humid days and will get into the skin and clothing.
    The brown burn residue stains.
    ~*ENJOY THE LOT!*~ It's SO much fun & inspiration!!!
