What a fabulous article. I am so inspired! Now that I have a craft/sewing/seed/plant room I am going to put this on my list of do-ables. This looks like so much fun. And what if I goof up? Nothing much lost and it will be a learning lesson.

Thanks for the shot of adrenaline I needed this time of year. The sky is the limit.

Oh Wow!!! Your enthusiasm is great, just what I wanted to happen, because that is exactly how I felt too when I ran across the thread.

Also great that you have a craft/sewing/seed/plant room...I have one that is slowly becoming that very thing.

When you get your light bulb treasures finished, you'll have to let us see.

Thanks for writing,

In one of the other threads, Horseshoe posted that the long utility bulbs, those that are maybe 12" long, would be great to hang like chimes, but wthout touching each other. Just to hang like chimes hang. Wouldn't that be great?

Sometimes I luck upon something like this and can't wait to get my hands on it. I have only one light bulb left, I keep thinking if I turn my hall light off and on repeatedly, I'll have another bulb!

So yes, I'll share with you what I find. Also, Zhinusmom's victorian ornaments are wonderful, too..so now I am searching for that style flowers to use for making some of them, too. But the catalog bulbs, I'll be hanging from my large plants.

Yep, I know exactly how you feel.

Sharran - Thanks! I can't wait to get my obligations over with today so I can put on my thinking cap. Maybe I can get in touch with the pet store that has several lights in their aquariums. They would be happy to give away their burnt out lights. Oh let me think. I know that there are other sources out there. Maybe knock on the neighbour's door and ask to borrow a cup of burnt out light bulbs. Okay. Now that is just silly.

I'll think with a fresh brain tomorrow then look out world. The possibilities are endless.

Thanks again
