Our neighborhood does luminarias every year on Christmas Eve. It's very beautiful and peaceful. I'd never seen the minnow bucket idea, and now I'm just going to have to steal it, if you don't mind. Great job!

Great projects! Love the buckets!

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I think it looks like I'm with mostly everyone here...when I say I lllooovvveee the luminaries! What a neat idea. And the trellis art is totally clever. I love the way it "works" so perfectly above that bed, too. I clicked over to see your post on it and it seems a fun and easy project. Really nice work on everything! :-)
