While I was having my morning coffee and mentally making my to do list, I was staring outside to the now usually gray wet dreariness of the day that I'm becoming used to seeing. In my estimate, I have calculated that we have about another 10 weeks to go until Spring springs! Yeah!
First things first: A Huge Welcome to all of my newest peoples' that have joined the Wall of the Beautiful and Chic!!!! HI!! I am so glad to have your company and look forward to your many visits back!
I have to confess that I have enjoyed reading all of your comments more than opening Christmas gifts! I can tell that you are all generous of heart & special in your own uniqueness. So I am looking forward to visiting you and being in awe of more of your talents!
How do you like my chandelier? It's amazing to me how Daddy will answer even the simplest, unspoken hope that we hold deep in our hearts.
A few years ago now, I had been drooling over all the chandeliers in other peoples' blogs and in magazines, but never really thought I'd have one of my own. It was just one of those quiet hopes, ya' know what I mean? Then one Friday morning, I literally stumbled across a estate sale of which was under the supervision of only one of the homeowners children. (Note: the said homeowner was and is very much alive. She just packed and moved only what she wanted and left the rest of her many, many things for her 3 adult children to divide, sale and deal with. Oh yeah, she went to vacation on a sunny beach while this estate sale was happening!). I happen to be the very first person to this under advertised sale.
Which was more than ok with me and he as I pretty much cleaned them out! This little beaut was on the far backside of a heaping table and I kept looking at it. I honestly thought the man was going to quote some outrageous price for it when I finally asked "how much". But instead, he seemed annoyed as he told me he trashed it until his wife yelled at him to dig it out and sell it. I got it for ..... $2.00 and it works! Well, it did work. I painted it white & hung it in the trees in my backyard that year and had candles in it. It is really pretty, especially with the candle light glowing through the crystals.
I'm just sayin'.
Well, here's a sneak peak at what I've been up to in this past week. Well, at least one thing anyway. I was about town last week, in between snow
My bath is sage, cream, white and purple. Yes, purple :) I took the colors of nature a few years ago to figure out what color to compliment the sage green tiles that we are not replacing as they are original to our 1951 home.
Not to bad, huh? You may recognize the green dotted trim as being the same fabric that is on my Baby Girls' Baby Memory Box from last week 'cause it is the same fabric. It was the perfect shade to compliment the bath. Love it!
Well, I've got to get going, lot's to do and not much time to get it done. But here's another look-see at what I'm working on today amongst the many other things to be done..... Just a look ;))
Have a wonderful day Girls! Stay warm, at peace and in the high creative gear of life!
