Metamorphosis Monday

Ok, so I'm joining Susan and the gang over at Between Naps on The Porch for Metamorphosis Monday, but I think I'm kinda pushing it for calling this a makeover!
I was dinkin' around in my studio, and was working on a top secret project. I didn't want any Joe Shmow waltzing in, and I was thinking, "I need to make a KEEP OUT sign for such times." And I thought of those old fashioned "Do Not Disturb" signs that you'd hang on a room doorknob. I happened to have one I picked up at a Thrift Store for yeah, 10 CENTS! Am I a bargain shopper, or what?
So I stared at it and thought I'd like to have it a little more clever and not so rude as KEEP OUT and thought of a little royal saying I'd heard or seen somewhere...I stamped it out on a sticker, slapped some scrap wallpaper on the hanger, stuck on a cigar label, plus used a couple of well-placed rubber stamps, and Voila!

I was going to take a picture of it hanging outside my studio, but found my camera battery was depleted...and it was too dark by the time I was ready to take the picture. Oh well, I'm sure you get the idea.
So there's my goofy Met Monday creation!!
Check out the others... they're way more imaginative than mine. ;-)
Have a great day!!
