let there be light ........or maybe not

 
One of my favourite Vinnie's had this light fitting in their shop.
It sat there winking at me every time I went in there .
Unfortunately I don't have a light that this will fit on.

 
It continued to taunt me for weeks until I brought it home.

 
I turned it upside and poured a few buttons in.

 
I kept pouring....

 
I poured some more....

 
lucky I have so many buttons .

I love it Clare - we must always answer 'the call'!! As I scrolled down, watching it fill with more and more button beauty, I found myself smiling - thanks! ;-)

Love the reuse of the light fitting, putting buttons in it was pure genius......
