What's old is new again.....

Sometimes the best things are the ones that were always there.

In my attempt to make everything old  new again (without reaching into my wallet), I glamourized these old bulbs by simply gluing an old pearl garland around them.  I think they look quite pretty.





It is my hope that I inspire you to not only create, but look at things in a new light and see the beauty that's within everything around you.

much love,
Lucy




I'm having a lovely cup of tea at

  20. Did you paint the ornament white first so the original colour didn't show through, or did you cover them with something (it looks like some fluffy fabric or something) or were they already white? I love the idea. Thanks!
