Default a swapping success!

due to a sensitivity to strong lighting, i swapped my chandelair type lampshade with twin for an upturned saucer type. It had wee bumps in the centre and was semi transparent glass i think, none the less, i placed small red glass beads amongst the bumps in the bowl, larger disc shape glass beads found at woodies about a year ago, around the centre in a circle and then, saved from another lampshade i place pink butterflies, pink flowers and pink leaves all around the larger red glass discs in a haphazrd fashion.
it looks great and i really think it looks more expensive and great effect.
will post pic tomorrow or soon hopefully.
with a new sage hoose, so much has been repurposed and done, i cannot wait to show all my friends here what i have done.

Oh Minnie Pal - that is just gorgeous. You could've found yourself a wee side line there - the design thing must run in the family.

Default thanks for the vote!!

thanks everybody.
Yes, i see an end in sight to getting house in order. most is up and running.
garden too is good, Bud (buddha) is now sitting high and happy on his plinth but we seriously lack some small wee trees for bird cover.
I am really now excited the way things have developed.
watch for my postings soon of how its all been done and turned out.
I am f..thrilled. Excuse my french!
