Light box

I have been wanting a Light Box for a while now
Hubby had some perspex left over from something he was doing in the shed I thoght he should make me one using the perspex He has been hesitant to make me one because he says our house is "bursting at the seams now"
The other day he had a brain wave He put a globe in the wrought iron under my glass top coffee table It works a treat and no more "stuff" to take up room
The vases on the table I painted years ago when I did ceramics
This morning we went to a Garage sale
A lady was selling several fat quarters for $1.50 each
I need more like I need more stuff but made her an offer on the lot anyway
So more lovely material The lady was telling me she is now obsessed with card making
Beautiful material is my obsession
We had a huge thunder storm here this morning and have had a few showers through out the day
At least things have cooled down a little

Good buy on the fat quarters! I also use a glass top table made by my nephew at manual arts lessons. It lives in the shed though, and comes in when I need it. Hubby assures me he will make one when he retires (an electrician!) Dianne

What a clever idea! It is very effective I bet when lit.

Your fat squares ( gosh , I'm using terms unfamiliar to me and they sound rather rude! LOL), are lovely. So appealing. I just like looking at material - the ideas are in my head. lol.

Great idea for a light box! I have a light inside a clear storage tub with a picture frame on top (glass only...no picture). It works great! :0)

Hi Illene,

I got your siggy in the mail yesterday. You can see a picture of it on my blog at http://susanintexas.blogspot.com/2010/02/international-siggy-swap-annelies.html I'll try to get your siggy out this weekend.

Love your lightbox idea. 8)

Fantastic idea! Wish I had a glass table so that I could do that too! I really want a lightbox.
