When I last showed you my new-ish porch light, created By me for the front porch… it was like this. Sitting on my kitchen counter--- all aglow.
- Canning basket-check!
- 2 small (very small) strands of Christmas lights-check!
- Assorted jars-check!
Well, now I’m showing you…
I must STRESS, I used different varying sizes of jars.
I didn’t use uniformly sized canning jars—made to fit this canning basket.
From a distance… still aglowing; and lighting up the porch nicely!
Because, well… I use those for ‘CANNING’…duh! Besides I had all these ‘used’ jars in a box—waiting to be repurposed.
Never mind—varying sized jars EQUALS UNBALANCED LOAD!
Here…finally, you can see it hanging from the support.
I have to give T.H. (the honey) some credit on getting my light hung; a couple of a reasons.
- —you know how I procrastinate
- He finally ‘gets’ my STYLE (vintage –repurposed-junk)
- He doesn’t let a little thing like “TILT” keep him from hanging a light!
It works! I like it! And it’s up there.
So what… IT TILTED A LITTLE, BIG DEAL?!
He gets my style… just not my vision I wasn’t keen on the 1x4 idea at first—but you have to pick your battles, right?
It’s nothing A ROCK IN ONE OF THE JARS COULDN’T EASILY FIX! OR…SEVERAL SAME SIZED CANNING JARS WOULD HAVE BEEN SIMPLER.
- T.H. and I make a great team, don’tcha think?
