I'm joining in Heidi's Make Do and Mend Mondays with a bit of a twist today.
These pieces, seven in all, came from a small touch lamp that started looking worn after many years of use. My husband didn't think we could re-paint the metal parts and retain the "touch" properties, so I saved these curved pieces from the "shade" and tossed the rest.
If you look in the upper left corner, you can see these have holes, and there are protectors on either side. They are so pretty, and I couldn't bear to part with them (this is a continuing theme with me!). My original thought was to string them on fishing line and hang them from something to make a mobile or wind chime of sorts. But now I'm not sure that's a good idea because if they knock against each other, they could break.
So what do YOU think? Do you have any ideas about what I could do with them? Or would I be better off throwing them away? I can't wait to read your ideas!
