You never know when or where inspiration will hit.
Walking through Anthropologie the other day inspiration hit.
Actually, I think I RAN INTO inspiration.
Bottles and Jars.
Hanging from the ceiling.
Honey jar chandeliers in the front window.
YES .. you got that right.
Honey bear jars with honey colored liquid in some.
Suspended by the DOZENS!
With backlights and hanging bulbs to make the whole thing
Awesome looking, but I moved on.
It was in the back of the store that I stumbled upon
Canning jars with sand and small shells and rocks.
Well -- I rocked them
(bumped is probably more accurate)
I CAN DO THIS!
And I had been looking for something to do with the stash of wine bottles and sparkling cider bottles we had been saving ....
Before the last barn sale
Cindy let me try it out for the
Land of Tarte.
(isn't she a good sport!)
and their "glamour shot" from Joy from Auntie Joy's ...
(we called it the 12-step chandelier)
We needed a LOT more bottles to get the look I was going for ...
but it's a start!
If you find yourself on the deck and not sure what to do ...
sit down and pour yourself a drink.
Anyone asks why the second glass?
Just tryin' to help Sammy Girl get that chandelier finished!
