Mojo Monthly - Any Old Iron!

Good evening there Peeps

I do hope you are all having a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend. And if you are on the East Coast of America, I hope you are all ok and weathering the storm.  I have a few blog friends over there and wish them all well.

Well today I am showing you my Mojo Monthly which challenge is set on a monthly basis by the lovely Sasa.

This month the them is "Muse it and Use it", which we were to make a piece of art which would be used rather than stuck in a cupboard.  So here it is....

I have several of these irons of different shapes and sizes which I use a doorstops.  This particular one is used here in my Craft Room to hold the windows open while I am crafting (when it is warm that it).  I also use them to hold various items of a crafting nature to ensure things dry flat!!

Here is the back of it.....

Hope you like it and please drop into Sasa's blog as there is some absolutely beautiful and inspirational work to view there and why not join in the Mojo Monthly.

Enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday.
