A Chandelier Made Of Vaccine VialsFrom a distance, this is just a lovely chandelier of shimmering glass. Look closely, and you'll see that it is made of glass, alright, 271 glass vials that once held the Moderna vaccine, plus a few of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. It was constructed by Laura Weiss, a retired nurse in Boulder, Colorado, who was called up to help vaccinate the public. As Weiss and her team vaccinated hundred of thousands of people, she hated to see all those tiny glass bottles going to waste. So she took them home and made a four-foot-tall chandelier she calls Light of Appreciation. It is a fraction of the vials that have been used in the county's wildly successful vaccination drive. As of September 4, 82% of the eligible population has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to Boulder County Public Health. Meanwhile, 77% are fully inoculated."I think it's just awesome everyone came together like that," Weiss said.While the chandelier is intended to represent widespread unity, Weiss said it is mostly dedicated to nurses and the support staff that made it possible."The nurses there had such passion and dedication and skill and care and kindness to do this for hours and hours and hours, day upon day. And not just the nurses. We had wonderful volunteers and administrators, and clerical people. Everyone really came together to vaccinate thousands of people a day." ​Weiss had never built a chandelier before, and learned how as she went along. She is looking for a permanent home for Light of Appreciation, in a place where it can be seen by the public. Read the story of the chandelier at NPR. -via Everlasting Blort ​(Image: Laura Weiss) #covid #vaccine #chandelier

Creating Fanciful Spaces by Bringing the Inside OutThe pergola above appears to be made of simple wooden posts. The rustic structure, however, is transformed into something out of a dream with the addition of unexpected elements. The materials and accessories one would expect to find inside of a home have come out into the garden.Heavy and frilly curtains are used to expertly frame the area. They give the the illusion that this open space is actually an an enclosed room. The two white chandeliers hanging over a beautifully decorated table add to this fantasy.Elements of the outdoors, however, remain in plain site. The rusted table and chairs clearly belong in the garden. They are weathered and worn by the ever-changing seasons.  Tendrils of ivy appear to be climbing and accidentally tying back the thick pink curtains. The natural beauty of the outdoors is wondrously and fancifully enhanced by the addition of indoor textiles, fixtures, and accessories. Magic is made by the mixing of such impractical components. This space is a reminder that the unexpected can have stunning results. #pergola #curtains #chandelier #frillycurtains #garden #gardenparty #tablescape

A Beautiful Hanging Kimono-Shaped Chandelier This gorgeous kimono chandelier combines artistic form and function. This is a working light fixture that doubles as piece of art. Perhaps, however, it's best described as a piece of art that doubles as a chandelier.  Cherry blossom-like flowers and branches weave about the top of the kimono. A water element, with waves and fish, anchor the bottom. Carefully placed lights give the piece a dazzling glow. The beautiful Japanese kimono. It is said that the straight cuts of the kimono allow the garment to fit a variety of body shapes. Similarly, one could say that this gorgeous Kimono-inspired chandelier could easily compliment and celebrate variety of home decor styles.   Image: Canopy Designs#kimono #art #Japanese #homedecor #cherryblossom #koi #chandelier #lights #lightfixture

Capturing the Beauty of the Desert With the Tumbleweed Chandelier Artists in Austin, Texas are taking repurposing from the land to a whole new level. They are turning invasive, annoying, and sometimes dangerous tumbleweeds into gorgeous and functional works of art. Behold the tumbleweed chandelier. The tumbleweeds are collected wildly in the spring. They are next left to thoroughly dry. After they are sprayed with a varnish and a fire retardant. Finally, they are transformed with lights into unusual and one of a kind chandeliers. The end result is a wonderful and magical harnessing of the botanical beauty of the wild west. #tumbleweed #chandelier #Texas #Austin #botanical #lights #homedecor #unusuallights
