love the cake stand and lamp ideas! I was also thinking you could try creating a series of mobiles for your home, or possibly as gifts. Something akin to this http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22183867 I think it could be really cute.

Wow, the only thing I get from work are empty copier paper boxes. I like the garden plant support idea. Also, you could put potted plants in them, if the lip of the pot would keep it from falling through, to create a tiered effect. Also wrap extension cords around.


Just curious... what software do you use for your illustrations?

You two are creative geniuses. And thank you for generously sharing your inspirations.


what about as trash bag holders for parties or yard leaf pick up... or how about you send some to me because i love the idea of adding fabric and using them for storage, id add the wooden top and have storage tables


Waoo!! So many great ideas!
Thank you Benita!

I liked all the ideas. :) The lamp, cake and food holder, the idea about using them as trash bag holder... All good ideas! Thanks!

I´ve already used one of the small ones for lamp shade construction. You can see it here, http://pointandshootbloggen.blogspot.com/2009/10/algjakt.html, if you´re curious :)

And thanks for a lovely blog!

Bra tips! Hade varit tråkigt att kasta alla de där fina formarna. Hon kommer säkert att göra någonting fint av dem sen :)

I'm in awe...you are so incredibly talented, Benita, thank you for sharing these lovely ideas!


Just walking home today I saw similar supports at a local florist. The only difference was that the long, vertical pieces of metal were more rounded out. They were used as supports for Christmas decorations and looked beautiful. Basically the shop had attached greenery to completely mask all of the metal wire and then had suspended a decoration in the middle. They ended up looking like natural, open lanterns and struck a really nice balance between the modern and natural elements. I would do a set of three of these and use them as a set on my porch (suspended or on the floor in a unit of three depending on the size). After that, I would definitely go for the string light storage!


Such great ideas!! A few years back I put some outside with tea pots filled with flowers on them.

God Bless You and Yours!!!
