I bought the pedestal at a garage sale last year. I wanted to use a bell jar but couldn't find one. This weekend I found this glass electrical industrial cover at a garge sale and it fit perfectly. The bee hive is made from a round styrofoam ball cut in half. Jute was wrapped all around it and glued in place. The bees are those little pipe cleaner ones.

nest with many holes in it where the wasps enter in? If it is the one with many open holes I do have an idea for that.
Let me know. Posted: 9:29 pm on October 29th

Was the magazine a "JunkMarket" magazine filled with Sue & Ki's projects? If so, that was a limited edition that sold out really fast, but I found it right away, so bought a copy. So glad you found the site.
I think it's pretty cool to use the Sanford and Sons song for your ring tone. "If the shoe fits, where it", right?
