Silver Sunday~3....And A Giveaway!


This is my mother's teapot lamp, made by me several years ago.
Hubby helped drill a hole in the bottom, place the rod and electrical wiring
through the inside of the rod. Easy to make and the results are quite nice.

It has the tarnished look like so many like. The lamp shade I made also.


A silverplate trophy bowl I found.

  19. Linda you always host the best giveaways! Your teapot lamp is quite spectacular (my mom and I made one a couple years ago, and I am still in love with it) how special for your mom to have. And I spied a silver tray with a K, is that another one of your creations? Lucky you on finding the trophy bowl, I have been looking for something like that for ages with no luck. Have a great weekend,
    Kate
    PS- you left a comment about being a mixture of burlap and paper bag, the first thing I always think of you is that REB satin that used to be on your header...

  44. I love your teapot. It's something everyone thinks of doing, but then we forget to do. You did it, and did it wonderfully too. I also scrolled down and saw the silhouettes on sheet music and loved them. I have some old sheet music that is really to tattered to use at the piano and I've been wanting to do something with it, this is great. Where do you get the silhouettes though? Or do you make your own?
    Blessings,
