How CUTE is that?

Well, as you know, I love to "think outside the box".....and today I thought I'd show you some clever ways the oh.so.creative girl designers at Southern Living at HOME created lamps for the Product Showcase at our National Convention which was held in Nashville this past summer. They think of the most clever things! This post will be about some of the ideas they used to re-purpose products as lamps.....another post another day about the clever way they designed a coffee table! Back to lamps....they take vases, candlesticks, flower pots, etc, and run them right over to the local lamp/lighting store where they are fashioned into the most darling little lamps. I will show some pictures of products they used to make lamps. Of course this is FYInspiration, and if you want to, of course you could consider things you currently own, or you could take a swing by a yard sale, or even by Goodwill and look with your creative eyes for products that might possibly be used in the same way. And then there's always your local SLaHOME consultant!! ;)

Very neat ideas.

BTW, I have the SLAH dishes by Gail Pittman from a few years ago. They may still be available. I have the yellow bowls with reddish polka dots. Love them! I just told my hubby today tht they were kind of expensive but they haven't chipped at all!
