This is my first post and it's exciting. I love to repurpose things and am always thinking, "What else can that be?" I'm new at this so I hope I can download the "lamp whimsey" I finished at 11:30pm. Yes, I ended up with a big mess in the kitchen, but love the results. I started with an old lamp, the kind we all see at tag sales, brass with the three arms for the bulbs and the top fixture. I took out the electrical parts and sprayed it with offwhite paint. I used gorilla glue to affix my cups, saucers, and pitchers to the arms and planted them with sweet potato vine, impatiens, trailing vinca, etc. It will look better as it grows. Please notice the hanging teacups on each side; they were too shallow to plant so I put grass and a nest in each one and all they need is a little bird!! Please bear with the pictures; I'm still learning how to post these pictures and so they are a little "askew", so to speak.
