This morning I read something I liked: "When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and dream, or wake up and chase those dreams..... " I am a dream chaser, I have always been.... and life has been good to me.... but it takes guts and courage to keep doing it !!!
I bought this vintage chandelier on Craigslist about 6 months ago....cleaned it up and painted it red. All of the original prisms were in tact. It sat in the corner of the dining room ever since. Today my DH surprised me and put it up!! Little did he know, I had to add a sleeve and the ceiling medallion (old frame) first. I will redo it next week while he is gone. I didn't have the heart to tell him!! Isn't it sparkly and beautiful? I have a before pic somewhere .
These are glass ornaments I am painting for customers.
Real pumpkins I handpainted!
Love my pumpkins!
The candles are the LED ones...I used my art and created a scene....printed it on velumn and wrapped around the candle and tied with ribbon. This way I can interchange the scenes according to the holiday!
A lantern, I painted.
Love my pumpkins!! John thinks I'm crazy!!!
This is line art/watercolor I made..the date on it is 1983...found it in a folder the other day...it's always like Christmas at my house...I am always finding things I made or partially made... How fun!! I need to reframe it later....it's what I had on hand.
I love this time of year, even though it's still so hot here. I thought I would post some photos of what I have done so far for the fall season. It's not much, but I love it!!
Well, I went to Target to buy some garden stuff...left with these instead! Weren't my colors...had no clue what I would do with them....but had to have them! Why, you ask! ? There were 2 absolutely 2 great reasons why...according to moi!! First, they were on sale...sale....sale....sale....and on sale again! I couldn't resist the 25....50...75...75...75% off! I paid less than $3 each for $25 pillows!!! All with down filled inserts. Second, well, I can't buy down filled pillow inserts for that much at the fabric store! Let alone the beautiful fabrics (linen) and make them for that much!!
Turned out, when I got home...they did match..the darker pinks, look more red...(see the tablecloth I have next to them on the top photo)...so on my back porch they went ....at least for the summer...then, I will make some fallish ones and replace the covers. They have quickly become my favorite thing! At least for now. They also have a runner to match, but it wasn't on sale..still $17.99...so I will wait and watch for that baby!!
Here's a great cookie recipe that's quick to make with very few ingredients. It's crunchy around the outside with chewy, gooey in the middle. Just click on the recipe card to print the recipe out for yourself.
I am joining in with at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. Since I had a lot of photos...I decided to add a slide along with the mosaic. Be sure to stop by and see the wonderful mosaics others have put together.
