New Twist on the Old Veggie Steamer Turn Sunflower
I always thought these were pretty cool when people reinvented these into sunflowers for their lawns or gardens.
I decided to get my daughter (muse & business partner) involved in making one of our own.
Mom was in town and she added some much needed input as well with her clay made roses.
Here is my partner talking lessons from her grandmother aka "Honey who in her own right used to make some incredible ceramic works in her day.
Here is the first proto-type but wait...it's missing something?
Hmmm? What's this?
LED Solar Lights 10 for $36.80 free delivery
A little tape
A little paint.
Sun Flower by Day - Had to add some distance with some wooden dowels between the light and the flower, just an inch or so.
Garden & walkway light by Night.
I'm pretty happy with the outcome of our "Garden of Lights"
Have you checked out all of our cool vintage cocktail shaker, percolator and teapot lamps from the 30s, 40s and 50s???

Tim D. (The Retro Den) on Dec 06, 2015I am so incredibly grateful that so many people have shared this post... My products are often dismissed as not being artistic and dismissed as a craft... Please feel free to check out my other posts... My daughter and I really enjoy map ending time together making these sun flower. / garden lights... 25 % of our profits go to her orphanage on China.... Thanks for the 33k views and the thousands of shares and like!
