I happened to find a junky old wire flower basket hanging in our backyard.

Hubby and I pondered on the lamp idea, and loved it. We are thinking that we might add wire mesh on the overturned basket and adhere broken colored glass to make it a junky mosaic/stained glass pendant to hang in our bathroom.

All of these ideas are so inspirational! Your room is lovely, lovely, lovely!!! Posted: 12:51 pm on April 29th

Last time I saw Sue, she was swinging from the rafters, that being only after we peeled her tong from a metal pole. Details on this will be shared in another post. Yeah, Trixie!! I love, love, love the repurposed lamp. Your room is simply stunning!! Lani Posted: 7:32 pm on February 12th
