Silver Sunday

For my first Silver Sunday I wanted to share the coffee pot night light that my DH and I made.
The entire inspiration came from my friend, Janis. You really should take some quality time to visit her blog, Junk Dreams. She has the most amazing ideas.
My DH did the electrical bits and drilling as well as the polishing. *grin*


I added the bling. We even did the shopping part together. We had such a great time picking out all the pieces.

Just the right touches.




I loved all the detail on this pot that we found.
Thanks to Beth from Gypsy Fish for a fun party.

Lady Pamela, what a beautiful nightllight you and your dh made :) Is that the lid the tea pot came with? I have never seen one like that. How lovely to see that on on old table when you walk into a room :) Besos, Rose
