I bought several insulators on an auction. I found the base on my neighbors garage sale for 10 cents.  Just what I was looking for to make candle holders.  Now I have a pattern too! Thanks to those that posted this idea!
A friend who makes doll clothes gave this to me since it didnt work for her.  I painted it blue originally but it didnt sell.  So I repainted it Robins Egg and distressed it.  Hope it sells next weekend
Ok,  Everyone says this is to tall.  I made it from reclaimed wood from the curb side pick up program  The door is solid wood from an auction.  It ended up 7 7  Since everone says its to tall.  I picked up a discarded step stool and made it to match for a vertical challenged aide! I painted it robins egg and decided to accent it with brown and after I steped aside I laughed. Look like a hersheys bar covered in mint. 
This was a $5.00 find in a thrift store.  The associate said it worked great and had plugged it in the day before.  She was attempting to locate an outlet when I noticed the copper wires coming out of a cord. Lots of them.  See the chipped corners.  She said it worked great though. 
Well,  I replaced the cord with another auction buy.  The associate was right.  the rollers worked, light worked, volumn control worked.  I reframed it with a reclaimed piece of wood and utilized the flaw into the art.  (FYI.  These bulbs are not a homeowner replacement item.  They are soldered in so If you want one you need an electrician to change the bulb)

Some odds and ends that I just put together.  Im cleaning up the projects I've accumulated this spring.  I will be switching to my birdhouses soon.  The Mrs is worried she won't have a garage for the winter.   Shhhhh! So am I.  My Clearance Sale is 16th & 17 Jul.  Come on down!
