Here is a little machine shop inspired posey made from the frame of a workshop light, a small, metal measuring cup, and a metal chain pull.  I just inserted the measuring cup into the clamp of the light and tightened it, and then threaded the chain pull into the light's rim.  It was really very simple, and I like the contrast of the flowers with the industrial feel of the metal.

you’ve taken an item that by itself has a cool industrial look and turned it into art…simple and great.
