So I mentioned a couple of posts ago that since I'm not doing school this semester I wanted to spend my time creating. These lamps are my favorite kind of project. I love re-doing lamps. These are true antique, lovely blue glass lamps that I bought on eBay. They came with the original cracked vinyl shades. I re-wired the lamps, then stripped the shades, and had a lovely time adding the crystals, flowers, and ribbon. I love the way they turned out.
Last weekend I covered and embellished some small address/memo/journal books, made some new hand mirrors, and Valentine hangers ("Find the key to your heart").
Same themes, different colors.
Similar themes, different colors.
I adore working with paper. Recently I've gotten back into making memory boxes. Love layers.
Okay, I made this "everyday" paper cake a little while back but had to add it-paper and embellishments-how fun is that?
I did just post a photo of this sweet box I made recently already but still wanted to include it here.
More boxes. The one on the left is another cigar box, the right one is a small, whimsical one for gifts or a special touch in a perfect spot.
I've made gift baskets for years. This year I decided to make Valentine boxes filled with Valentine goodies that can be used to keep your cards. I recently read a quote that went something like this, "Art is the only way to run away without actually leaving." Amen.
