I don't know if you all remember the light fixture that I was so happy to win on Ebay a year ago, only to have it arrive broken. After months of trying to get the seller to send me the original post receipt(because I paid insurance), and then no longer answering my emails, I admit that I just gave up and let it go. It did nag at me that I didn't pursue it as much as I should/could have, but other things were going on. Well, today, I decided to do something with that broken lamp sitting in a box in the basement. I super glued the broken pieces, filled the chips with clay, and then painted it. I didn't paint the whole thing, I left some of the original pottery color that matches my dishes, just to tie the whole thing together. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and it looks great over my kitchen table. Hubby moved the light that was there into the new media room to replace the ornate chandelier that was in there(which will just have to live in a box in the basement for the time being).
I would like to apologize if I offended anyone with my post yesterday on products from China. I didn't mean for anyone to take it as an attack on the people of China or any other country for that matter. So please forgive me if it came across that way.
