I'm tired of my rooms so I'm gonna take you outside today.
Right outside my back door.
The back porch if you will.
But I'm not going to show you the part of the porch that is piled up with furniture that needs to be put in the basement, but got covered with snow yesterday and today.
Do you ever tire of hearing about my messes?
If you are new around these parts, you may not know that I'm a fan of the glass globe tower.
If you aren't new, you might remember these
I built these a couple of summers ago. I've collected more globes, but I haven't made another tower yet. Maybe this summer.
In the meantime - when I was taking down the towers for the winter a couple of weeks ago, I got the wild idea to move that short base up to the porch and put together a little globe Christmas tree of sorts.
I made it basically like I made these. Except the rebar that goes up the center is not buried into the ground. Also since it is protected from the wind and weather I only used lamp attachments on the bottom globe (at the base and at the top).
I love these little miniature red globes.
People were very concerned that I didn't light the other towers.
I did light these. It was easy because the tree isn't directly exposed to the weather and is right next to a plug. I was also able to use the wiring hole in the base to stick the cord through.
I made this star from a little wooden star that was hanging around in the basement.
Make something wonderful today!
