Carrie created these lovely garden angels from glass lamp shades. One has a head made from a sink faucet. Other pieces are small votive holders, and dessert dishes. The rubber sealers for the round bulb-like candle holders even worked well as halos! In addition to her ReStore pieces, she used some antique tin from her store's old ceiling for wings on one, and simple wire for the arms and wings on others, as well as accent pieces of old tin, and old chandelier crystals.
My Mother taught me the value of a sensational lamp. I have wonderful floor lamps, desk lamps. nightstand lamps, sconces, small bathroom and bedroom lamps too that stand out, and it is worth the investment. Hint: get the right lamp-shades too.
