I was talking to Ellen a few weeks ago about a new project I was working on. She and I work wonderfully together and I have found several of her suggestions not only useful but, genius!
I bought several glorious old lamps. I figured with a little work they could really rock for Valentine’s Day and beautifully hold fresh flowers! I took the lamps completely apart, cleaned them, and removed the wiring.
Then, I replaced the light bulb socket with a glass bowl. The glass bowl I used was actually glass taken from an old lighting fixture. I was the perfect fit because already had a hole in the very center where it would have been attached into the ceiling. This allowed me to attach it very easily to the lamp. Once the bowl was secured, I couldn't wait to get it to Ellen so she could make her magic happen. In all of her glory, Ellen filled my new re-purposed lamp until it over flowed and fresh flowers dribbled down the sides! Thank you Ellen!!!
