Now What's She Up To...continued

I admit, every once in a while I buy a Lotto, Powerball or MegaMoney ticket.   I'm always a winner the night before the drawing - imagining how I will play Lady Bountiful with my loot.  Alas, with the exception of a free ticket now and then, I have never won any big money.  I'm the biggest loser ever!  Since I rarely throw anything away, I decided to make something out of my losing tickets.

I have a wonderful dress form that I make outfits for.  I call her "my girl" and she resides in my living room.  Here she is wearing the "Biggest Loser" bustier.   I love her!

I have a collection of Scrabble tiles.  I made tabs spelling out MEGAMONEY - LOTTO - POWERBALL which hang from the bustier.

Maybe I'm not such a big loser afterall...

Come back and visit me next week.  I'll have something more to complete her ensemble.

Visit Pink Saturday for more inspiration.

I had to LOL! What a brilliant way of using your tickets...and very cleverly done too.

What a talent you are.
And how wonderfully quirky.
Can't stop giggling here.
That doesn't mean that I don't think it is beautiful, as well as very very funny.
I envy you your spirit and outlook and the way your mind works.

hannah said...

I have a whole lot of spent tickets if you want any :-)
[The lotto people didn't want them back in echange for money]

Blissful Pumpkin said...

Aha! That's what you were making. You were right, I would never have guessed. It looks great. You are very creative. Brilliant idea.
Kyles :D

Cindy Adkins said...

Wow, this is brilliant, Pat--I love "your girl!"

poppilinnstudios said...

I love it! You are soooo creative! Can that be worn? :)

Susie Jefferson said...

That is such a brilliant idea! I need to start saving mine (book cover, I think) as I keep doing the lottery and can't remember the last time I won anything. At least this way we kind of get our money's worth!

Happy Pink Saturday...

Lui said...

Haha! You're a winner!
So that's what you've been up to!
I make bustiers and sculpture out of junk so welcome to the club, Pat!

What an awesome project!


Cindy said...

You really made me laugh out loud! LOL I love "her"! Creative and unique! Hugs, Cindy

LV said...

I gave that up a long time ago. I am just not the lucky one. Maybe you will be fortunate and get the right ticket for a big payoff. Love what you did with the old tickets.

Sharon said...

Well this was worth waiting for after the little "snippet" we got last week!!! How much fun is this creation! I just love it! Just fantastic Pat!! Happy Pink Saturday!!

Abramyan Avenue said...

Ha!! How cute! I LOVE this!! I think I need one of these too! I never win. Never. Ok, once I won $200 and a couple of times I won $50. And that is it! I tell myself at least I am helping pitch in for the educational system... it makes the constant losing not such a bad hurt! Anyway, love, love, love your creation!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Sarah said...

Ha! Now we know! :) That's creative!

Michelle said...

Pat, Happy PS. Great way to re-purpose, adorable and creative. I would wear it, but I'm not sure you got my size right...I am going on a weight loss program though...maybe I should wait for the next surprise. What size is your dressform, I could dream for that just like your lotto dreams.

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

Now that deserves a magazine cover or at least a feature ! Love it.

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

You outdid yourself this week! How clever is this!!!!!
I agree....this would make a wonderful magazine cover!

Daniella said...

That is so fantastic I don't even have the words for it!! I really am the biggest loser, and don't ever win anything, but you are the big winner!! How ever did you get them on there? And where does that pink fit in?
Like I said, this is pure genius!!!

Riet said...

THis is so cute. I believe I am the biggest looser. Never won anything except once two dollars. LOL.
Happy pink Saturday

That is awesome, Pat!! I just love it. Now I'm wishing I'd kept all of my losing PowerBall tickets....but on the other hand, it would just make me sick thinking of the money wasted! :)

This makes me smile Pat. It reminded me of the clothes designer show That had to make something artsy fashion out of produce.

Thanks for your visit on PS. I am just now getting around to everyone who visited me that day. We are still out of town and having fun.
Have a great week.
XO Jeanne
