Something From Nothing and a little bit of Everything!

The art of turning "good junk" into "great design"


"Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
William Morris, Hopes and Fears for Art (1882)

Solar lamps from recycled dishes

I love when a good idea comes to fruition and when I see something for $25 at a Garden Centre and I can confidently say, "Well,  I can make that for a lot less."
The finished product
At $7-$8 per lantern they are a great inexpensive gift
A quick trip to Value Village, and the Dollar Store, some Quick Grip glue, left over from my Sea Glass project and we were on our way.








 I mixed and matched the original candy bowl sets












added the solar light(from the dollar store, with the stakes removed)










patiently glued, and waited for it to dry,




and voila a unique patio lantern that can either sit on a table or hang on a garden hook in your flower bed.










 Great hostess or thank you gift. 






Laura had her first Wedding Shower today, and she received a "Something from Nothing" lamp.  How fitting.
