It's a LAMP---outta an OLD Clarinet---

There are these days that I make these types of things that I just shake my head and say---violaaaaa---or more like ta-daaaaaaa----sometimes they just turn out awesome---and sometimes I say---dang and scrap the whole darn deal---I am happy to say ta-daaaaaaa!!!!

Here's my lamp---made from an early 1900's Elkhart of Indiana Silver Plated Cavalier Clarinet---the silver is tarnished and gives the piece a real antique feel---the lamp shade was made from old sheet music that I decoupaged onto the shade and added some trimmins' to---it really is quite stunning! I hope you agree---it is listed on Ebay now---

This is SO creative, love it! You always come up with the most awesome ideas, brillant! I hope it sells for a ton! I got my tatto for my 50th b-day present from my daughter Rochelle. I love it, it hurt getting it and took a while to heal but I am very happy to have it now it's part of me. I'm trying to get back into the swing but it's going slow. Today I tackle my craft room, moving everything out so I can remodel. I keep telling myself I will be so happy when it's done. Miss you lots, take care, hugs!
