Weekend Inspiration: Light bulbs

If I have to make one more trip to Target in the next week, I will sit down in the dollar section and cry. Now I love me some Target, but going a bajillion days in a row because I keep thinking of something else I need starts to make it feel like a reminder that I still have a long way to go before I will be settled. You know what I keep forgetting every time? LIGHT BULBS. Do you know how important light bulbs are? Probably not, because I didn't think about it until I didn't have them! Maybe if I make it the weekend inspiration theme I won't forget on today's Target adventure...

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS MINIATURE... how adorable is this tiny dress in a light bulb? I don't know why you would want to, but it's nice to know it's possible.

I like that this hanging garden doesn't require you to take the guts out of the light bulbs before you use them. Also, the addition of jars is a fun variety.

I couldn't find the real source of this idea, if anyone knows where it comes from please let us all know! It looks pretty simple and colorful. Experimental DIY time?

Make your own salt and pepper shakers from old light bulbs!

Vintage Christmas lights would be an easy light bulb Christmas decoration.

I wish I'd seen this when a friend was trying to make snow globes a while back!

This would be the cutest theme for a baby's room; light bulb hot air balloons. Hung well out of reach of course!

A classic. Make an oil lamp from a light bulb and a screw top. You could use citronella oil and make it a mosquito repelling assistant as well.

My Mom is driving up from Florida  for the long weekend so I'm pretty excited. We'll be doing some exploring of my new city. What are you up to for Labor day? One last beach trip before the weather starts to turn? I'd love to know!



  1. There will be no judgment here on the amount of time it takes you to get 'settled', as I'm still currently in the process myself! Let me know when you get that Costco membership and I'll zip right over! (PS they are getting a Costco in Cola!)Have a wonderful time with your mom this weekend!

    1. Thanks Margaret! I think you're right; the settling in process takes a lot longer than I would like to believe. No Costco membership yet, but it would be worth it just to trick you into visiting me :)

      Wait, Columbia is getting a Costco? THIS RUINS ALL MY FORCE-YOU-TO-COME-HERE PLANS.
