My Blooming Lamp!




these pictures were taken in my shop as I was working, please excuse all the stuff!

I decided to keep this one, just liked where it was sitting!

I love this idea, not mine though. Kara from Elements Interiors came up with this one. Talk about a talented lady, she truly is. Sometimes I wonder how in the world she comes up with all these creative ideas. Her link is enclosed so you can visit her blog.
Anyway all that to let you know where I was coming from. Today was such a beautiful day and I was inspired to try  and see what I came up with. The first one with the red roses is in a mahogany wooden box. Filled with foam and the lamp glued and wired securely. Be careful and keep the glue away from the cord. Moss was then applied and the flowers was placed. The other lamp was secured the same way, just different pot and flowers. I always spray my arrangements with a clean acrylic sealer. Then when the flowers get dusty (or at least they do at my house) lol, all you have to do is take a hair dryer on low setting (no heat) and blow it off. Very easy! Both of these will go to my booth at a local flea market. Now if they will just sell, then I did have a productive day. I for sure will fix some of these for my house also. I hope you enjoyed your visit, thank you for stopping by.
Be sure and go to Elements Interiors, you will be inspired! link follows:
