Lighten Up!

Pin It
 here's a simple arrangement idea for the 'bridge' from winter into spring...
and yes, those ARE what you think they are!

glass light globes
from old porch lights and overhead hall lights!
these are generally available at vintage lighting stores, building salvage stores,
and sometimes thrift shops for just a few dollars each
OR
you can find new ones at hardware stores
 [but they aren't as interesting as old ones]

you've seen them here on HOMEWARDfound before -
this season, they are serving as flower vases and vase fillers:

* a tall glass cylinder vase holds assorted round glass globes 
the burlap tie hides the stems of the faux white cherry blossoms

 * single glass globes serve as flower vases
simply tuck a few faux stems into the openings, 
OR place a small jar filled with water inside the globe to hold real blooms.

yes, i use glass globes in my decor all year long!
here are some of the other glass globe ideas i've shared:

  3. What a beautiful display ~ and to think I got rid of all of my glass globes when I had the lighting redone in my house....kicking myself now! I love how you take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.

    Thanks so much for sharing your creativity at Project Inspire{d} ~ have a lovely week, Deb!

    Hugs, Mary Beth
