  1. Hmm ... tea lights for ceiling fixtures. I could see decorating them with clear beads, both hanging in strings and some glued to to the plastic covering. Not sure how you'd hang them from the ceiling. You'd want them removable to be able to change the battery now and then.
  2. Could you thread the wires from single lights through the beads? You could paint the white wires with a metallic paint. Lights at Cir-Kit Concepts

    Works for me! The camera does tend to exaggerate.

    This is as cute as a basket of kittens. Are you going to age the stove/oven unit? It's soooo white!
  5. Ah, I looked at the photos again and saw the bucket beside the basket of drying twigs. Clever you! I skipped past that pic when I looked the first time. Are you planning to put it out for birds to use it? Since is cannot be cleaned out, it might be best to keep it indoors as a lovely bit of rustic decor.

    Fairy cottagfe

    Absolutely charming! What is the tall spiral, metal-ish looking item in the back left corner? My old eyes can't quite tell.

    Fairy Bathroom

    Love it -- a natural shower when it rains.
  8. I love it, and I bet the birds will, too! What is the underlying form? It looks like a small pail, but it is camouflaged well. Does the roof remove for the annual cleaning?
  9. Back in 1955 I was in 8th grade. I was chosen by a vote of the junior high teachers to participate in our town's Memorial Day celebration. I'm pretty sure it was still called Decoration Day at that time. I wore a white dress with a red, white, and blue badge sash and a silver star badge that proclaimed to the world: Deputy Mayor. I rode in the parade in an open convertible with the mayor while my mother, a Girl Scout leader, and my sister, a Scout in her troop, had to march. I gave a little speech from the dais when the parade wound down in the park. I don't recall what I said, but I know it was very brief, and I'm pretty sure I missed the whole point. I mostly remember being terrified. I still have the badge and sash.
  10. Do you remember the little paper or cloth poppies that we used to wear in remembrance on Memorial Day? That was back in the day when the focus was on family and remembrance, not a marathon of sales. Americans don't typically wear poppies on November 11 (Veterans Day), which honors all living veterans. Instead, they wear the symbolic red flower on Memorial Day—the last Monday in May—to commemorate the sacrifice of so many men and women who have given their lives fighting for their country. *In Flanders Fields* by John McCrae, May 1915 In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
  11. Common sense tells us that the more glue is used, the more water can seep into the shingle, and the more likely the shingle will buckle. The entire backside of the shingle does not need to be smeared with whatever glue is being used. A thin bead or even a few drops will do the job. Shingles are not subject to the structural strains of joints. In the case of gluing shingles, less is definitely more. Or as the old Brylcreem ad said, "A little dab 'll do ya!"

    My miniature potatoes

    Very realistic. The ones that look like smooth brown eggs never impress me. What potato doesn't have irregularities? Love these!
