I made JH pose with the newest Christmas project so you could get an idea on the size of this! I bought these glass stoplight lenses in Florida, last year, for $1 apiece. I just figured out today what to do with them!!! The picture doesn't really do it justice. The lenses all light up bright and you can't really see the individual bulbs behind them.

This is the day of the week dedicated to our amazing members and the wonderful ideas they have shared in the week past. Remember, you are all truly talented and I can only get to a handful each week. I will endeavor to mix it up and highlight a wide variety of members and types of projects. Let the sharing begin!

To start things off I would like to introduce you to Chovey. She is a long time member of the JUNKMARKET Style family and has offered up many, many inspiring projects, not to mention her thoughtful words of encouragement to other members. During the past week (weeks) she has been one busy girl sharing a dizzying amount of holiday ideas. This is just one of them and it is AMAZING! Go under member projects and take a look at her other wonderful submissions. Way to go Chovey! Thanks so much.

Take care,

P.S. Here's a shout out to your helpful JH! Posted: 11:37 am on November 23rd

The background for this is actually made out of plywood and 1 x 2's for the supports. JH tried and tried to talk me into painting this green but I was adamant that black was the ONLY way to go on this on. See, fooled the eye that it was metal, didn't it??? I don't think it would have had the same affect with the green paint...now he wants me to put a star on it....NOT....he jsut can't get used to the sleek, clean, rusty look! lol

Yes, Sue...JH is quite the 'trooper'! He complains.... but loves it the whole time!!! lol

Keep up the neat ideas!!!! Posted: 7:53 pm on November 20th
