What were they thinking?

Last week I received a STRONG suggestion that the quantity of magazines lying around the house was TOO much...
Ans since everything in life is about compromise....And getting rid of mags (not the vintage ones) was really a good idea. So this week I go through all the mags one by one and I found this....

A new use for mismatched china in the April 2009 issue of Country Living.
There is a full tutorial on how to make a lamp with your mismatched china.....Did you notice the Pyrex bowl in the box? It's a New Dots 403. It is pretty hard to come by and is worth 15-20$.
Ok I wanna meet the person who has no use for a gorgeous bowl and is willing to drill a hole in the bottom.Which I consider extreme crafting.  
 I keep picturing crafters with shards of bowl inbedded in their faces screaming....Or in the emergency room: Tell me what happened....You see I was drilling a glass bowl...and

No you won't be seeing me anytime soon drilling Pyrex! Anyways I'm not too crazy about the end result...


I might do something like that but all in white which could be charming...or if Jadeite was coming out of my wazoo, I might try something in Jadeite 'coz the color is so gorgeous....But NO drilling!

I would so like to meet the crafters at Country Living and see what 'interesting' projects they have lying around in their heads....

Have a nice weekend dearest readers, and be very careful using powertools!

I an not a drill packing woman either. So crazy, what are they thinking??? Laughing at the thought of making a lamp out of those lovely vintage bowls etc.

A fun post, you must have been reading more than getting rid of your mags. HA!
Hugs, Jeanne

I do love the idea of making the lamp out of china but I don't like the pieces they used. I like your idea of all white. If you do it, don't forget to show us. I would like to do one but I am 'afeared' of drilling china!

Oh this is just too much! lol if you have jadeite coming out your wazoo I would have to stop reading. I don't think I could even take it - that you would have so much you started making lamps?

I remember seeing that article and thinking that was ugly and a waste of good Pyrex and other delightful dishes! I can 'see' where they were going but not with my Pyrex mind you. I agree all white dishes would be very cool.

Wow, I've never seen anything like that! I'd like to see what's going on in their heads too! Thanks for dropping by to visit my blog!
