I got this at a yard sale for a dollar. Now what do I do with it? I was thinking lamp? It's just that the how to of that kind of boggles me.





It's got this funny kind of lip on the bottom...if that helps the mind any. It looks like it is supposed to be a woman with short hair.

What the heck was this used for before anyway?

My mom's got a couple of those from garage sales as well... She displays hats on them. My sister used one to take photos of her crocheted kitty ear hats.

I had a friend who used one to block crocheted hats.....or maybe it was knitted hats. Anyway, for making a good fit.

Dude!  I made a fish bowl out of a glass head.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=92437.0

But, the way the replies were going in the thread you would think I was a horrible horrible person for putting a fish in such a place.  Honestly Elliott seems just fine, he is alive and kickin'.  He hasn't died or jumped out of his bowl.  So it seems fine with me.

Anyways, just an idea.

I have a glass head too.  For a while I made it a Christmas light brain--bundled a strand of small colored lights and shoved it up in there.  It looked great but with no air circulation the glass got really hot.  Now it sits empty on my piano.  I'll be curious to see everybody's ideas.

the fish bowl idea was neat, but using it as a regulor vase would be cool too
