Newbie attempts at totems, etc
I visited a couple thrift stores in the small town where I worked today. Hoping to make a large totem. My first totem also. Bought a little of this and a bit of that. But it just doesn't work when I get it home. Had hoped to use the tall purple vase and little short purple candle thing in the one photo along with some clear glass. But, I can't make it work together. Soooo, I might just start with the smaller clear one in the other photo. With just the little blue thing on top. Haven't "glued" it yet. Still playing with it.
Or maybe I just need to hold off and shop the thrifts in a larger city first?
The one junk shop did have lots of the large old lamps with the clear but colored glass bases. A few quite large but priced at $18 each. I could probably get them for $15 but that still seems a bit to spend when you have to add other pieces to them.
