light of my life

With Valentine’s in the air, I thought this gave me an excuse to be a little mushy.  Never did I imagine that I would end up with such a sweet, kind-hearted and selfless valentine as Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder. Designing a perfect match for me was no easy task, and some would argue quite impossible.  But what ever happened along the way, it molded the most perfect person for me. (thump thump)

When I saw this idea featured on Design Sponge, I just knew it would be perfect for Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder.  A small little gesture to let him know how much I appreciate all of the things he does for me. For working hard all day long, being a manly-man and taking on the tons of little projects around house and still finding time to let me know I am his #1.

I love this becaue it incorporates the reuse of some household items.  I had this bulb just hanging out in my utility closet. 
I was a little bit intimidated when hollowing out the bulb. I wore my sporty pink dish gloves for a little extra protection.
Once I pulled the solder point I gained a little confidence. Just be careful with the little shards of glass.
Solder point is out, now it is time to break the brass insulator.
Pulling out the filament was one of the final steps of hollowing the bulb.
Adorable little red heart “filaments” give it that precious homemade look. I love playing around with their shapes, giving them their own personality.

    So I took a break from the house to take a peek…Adorable! I'd be lying if I didn't say that post on Design Sponge didn't bring you to mind. I love this little project and I'm sure your Mister loves it to.
    Happy Valentine's Day!
