First FencePost

This is my first fence post on my new blog! How exciting! I am hoping this will inspire me as well as all of you to create more, read more, and be more adventurous in your art. Right now I am really into taking "junk" along with "stuff" I have around the house and making it into something beautiful and purposeful. The first piece I created on this adventure is a small decorative lamp. I used an old candlestick light, and a rustic caserole dish from a local second hand shop. I had (at home) an unused lampshade, some beautiful dried flowers and pinecones (given to me by a very dear friend), some fabric scraps, a little paint, rubberstamping ink, put it all together, and came up with this cute, rustic lamp. I think it's great and my husband really thinks it's great, because I only spent $1.50 on it. LOL! I hope it inspires you to do something similar. Have fun and be creative.

Ye are the light of the world. ~ Matthew 5:14
