The lamp base was created using an old galvanized funnel. The shade is fabricated from a vintage Sears thermos. 
Vintage decorations add a little holiday cheer to the top of a jelly cupboard I built years ago.
A rusty old steam pipe valve is emblished with holiday greenery and a few vintage ornaments to add sparkle.
I repurposed a canning jar into an oil lamp. Cranberries fill the bottom and add a touch of color.
The artwork on old Christmas tree light boxes is amazing.
Handmade wooden ice skates from the Victorian era.

I have been building things from junk since I could pick up a hammer, but the last eight years of sharing my creations with all the talented and amazing people on JMS have been the most creative years of my life. So many of you have become my junk buddies and you will never know how grateful I am for that. Thank you again and Merry...MERRY CHRISTMAS...!

And, I am especially thankful to you, Sue Whitney...!

The steam pipe valve is awesome and the graphics on the boxes are classic. You are one of a kind my friend!!!

Merry Christmas,
