I Had a "LIGHT BULB" Moment

I used the componets separately here in this  arrangement. The moss and potted fern in the light cage and a small posey in the bulb cover. I used Mung beans to hold the flowers in place *(see note below) and set it in an old enamel bowl .
Here I kept the two pieces together with a nice mixed bouquet. I added an old lab beaker with a Lily for height and some rusty accents just for fun.
I swear, you could not see through the thing it was so dirty. But what do you expect from a barn?
TaDa! Nothing a little soap and water cant fix.
The possibilities are endless with this pair.
Im thinking a little something under the light bulb would be cute...so why didnt I do it, you might ask? I dont know.
* A word of warning. Not being much of a gardener as you all probably know by now, I was quite shocked to see that if you put Mung beans together with water...they GROW!!!! Oh it held the flowers alright...I couldnt get them OUT!

I was so excited when I found this old light cage and bulb cover at a barn sale in Cayucos Ca. (Sue's favorite place) and knew I could do lots of things with it. Here are a couple of ways to use them ..together and apart. I'm sure there are a million other things to do with them, I see seasonal projects ahead. This one's a keeper for me.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

Georgiamoon, what a great old lamp cage you found. I remember seeing some similar fixtures in a dairy barn years ago. NO, I didn’t take them, it’s all the poor cows had for light. I think my favorite is the photo with the beaker and old boards in the background. Beautiful project as usual.
