I got an idea

An idea, which could be dangerous, especially when electricity is involved. However, with some care I think we can pull it off.
Right after I posted about making the metal rose I happened over to The New Victorian Ruralist One of those blogs where the best of the web/ blogs and are posted each day to drool over. I could spend all day looking through the older posts (actually, I have). This is what I saw,  a few samples of Terrain's rustic light fixtures.

After seeing those I ran and grabbed my rose, held it upside and thought, yep, I like it. I like it a lot. 
We are going to make two for the back porch. The hard part is going to be finding two matching rusty light cages. I would like them to be in the center of the flower. 

Letting my little light shine :0)

Send an e-mail to Margo at Robo-Lady. You can get there from my side bar. She did have some cages at Winnie and Tulula's...cheap, cheap, cheap!
Love the idea...make more to sell!

Thanks Debbie! I'm going to rummage through the barn and see if I have two that match. I'll still e-mail her, I'm thinking I could make a few extras ;0)

Made a light from ancient wire hanging basket. Hung from an oak tree over a small table/2 chairs for the garden conservatory we built for the Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival this spring.

Alas, could not photograph it. It 'dissappears' in pics.

Loved the look &&&& the price.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
