When I dropped a lovely 1940's glass lampshade I was only cross/sad/upset for a short time because I remembered a post on Mobunny's blog about a piece of china her cousin had soldered
and made into a necklace for her. So I scooped up (very carefully lol) the shards of glass and made these two pendants, not sure they will become necklaces though as Matt has the idea that i should make a wind-chime from them as the glass looks very pretty in the light.
I had a day 'childfree' today, so after dropping my daughter off at drama, I popped into a local independent DIY shop and found a glass cutter and a pair of needle nosed pliers at a bargain price... and walked out smiling!
So tell me.... when did I stop getting excited by shoes and start getting excited over pliers??
