No need to re-invent the wheel

This morning when I opened my email programme my eyes were instantly grabbed by the latest ‘Treat Me’ offering… and not because I wanted to buy it… but because it was something I’d already seen.  It seems that others have now seen it too… let me show you what I mean.

Last year while I was doing my Feel Good Friday stuff I spent a lot of time looking around Google-land looking for ideas that caught my eye… and in October (Week 43 to be exact) I came across these little beauties:

week 43 - light bulb vases

Remember those??  Little vases made out of light bulbs?  You can go HERE to see my original post.  There are loads of tutorials out there… some are better than others… and to be honest I’d forgotten that I was going to give it a try.

Well it seems that someone else has stumbled across this idea too… and they’re pretty happy to charge you for it!

Yes that would be $19 for ONE light bulb vase… but wait there’s more… you can pick up two of them for $36… and if you want to be really extravagant you can get a set of 12 for a mere $206. 

Hmmm… I think I might have another look at those online tutorials LOL


  1. LOL - No need to re-invent the light-bulb vase either, it seems. Go on - give it a go and let us see what you can do with a less than $2 bulb.

  2. Just do it!!! LOL.

  3. That's pretty cool! Good old-fashioned light bulbs have been outlawed here. We can still buy the few that are on the shelves so maybe I should stock up.

    1. Really?? So what do you use instead Roxi?

  4. We too have the band on old fashion light bulbs - it has to be all those curly efficient environmentally friendly bulbs. I do not think our government really cares about our creative sides or needs (lol).


Hi :) I really love hearing from you so please leave me a comment... I really appreciate it!
