Hand-made lanterns

I made some lanterns...I used little glass jars and some wire...

















...I etched some words on them...fleur...bugie...

















...jardin...amour...

























..and voilà! Some new lanterns to be hung in the garden and on sale on LC!

I've recived two awards in the last days!

Thank you Tanja from Tanja's Homestyle for this nice award! I'm honoured to received it from you! You're a creative girl!












...thanks to my dear friend Margie from Margies' Crafts....I like the way you share your life with us and you're a very talented girl!











As you know, I cannot choose only some blogs to be tagged! So I give these two awards to all of you, old and new friends!!!

Those lights are excellent for warm Summer-nights, in a tree or on the table, it´s always lovely. Do you use a special product for etching?

Ciao Vale!

Oh those lanterns are beautiful!
I guess you had a machine to do the etching?
Once I used some sort of frosty paint to make it look like engraving, but it wasn´t a success.
