54th Metamorphosis Monday and a Rosey Candelabra

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphorsis Monday!

Bought a pair of these candelabras a fews years back...they were missing something on them....and I could never remove the glue. This weekend I got them out and ,made roses out of polymer clay. I think they turned out pretty nice!

Just Playing!

Had a frame and a large plate (picked the plate up for $3). Framed the plate! Saw a lonely teacup...grabbed it and tied it to the frame with pretty ribbon! (Ned to cut the ribbon a bit)I am really enjoying it. It's in my dining room! Simple!

Metamorphosis Monday and a Settee

I found this cutie at a thrift shop. It was rusty and broken in some areas. Sorry, forgot to take before pics!

I cleaned and welded the rusty and broken areas, primed it, then gave it a nice shiny coat of red rustoleum paint! Isn't it just too cute? When time permits, I will make cushions for it for the seat and back. I think I have some vintage tablecloths that might work! Stay tuned!
I'm linking up to Susan of Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday Let's al go take a tour and see what the other ladies have been up to!

Have a Creative Day!

Updated Valentine Tree and a Gift From Blogger!

I really didn't care for the red tree afterall, so I decorated my Radko tree instead. I like it better!! It shows off the ornaments much better! I need to get more checked silk fabric to make a skirt for my tree.
See the black and white candle in the last photo? It was sent to me by Sarah of Hyacinths for The Soul! What a great surprise to find this in my mailbox today! So sweet...I love it!
If you haven't been to her blog, you MUST run....don't walk over and see all the fabulous photos and her writings about her home and life. It is always full of life!

I also changed my blog...borrowed a background until I have time to create my own...I did change my header image a bit...I am liking it better with a little pizazz!! Don't you?
I'll be adding a Giveaway in the next week, so keep an eye out for it. It will be something to do with Valentine's Day!!
Have a Creative Day!
Warm Hugs....Linda
ps...I apologize for the photos...they were taken with my phone

Too Much To Do!!?

Well, this morning I started out taking down the Christmas decorations.....did the entrance and the outdoor wreaths...went to retrieve the boxes for storage and saw a box of "to do projects"....nicked the decorations and proceeded to go through the to do box....found a wooden bowl....went outdoors to prime it...went back indoors to get sandpaper...found a candlestick...thought it would look cute redone....went to the bar area...found an old crystal sat neatly in the candlestick....went to the scrapbook room to grab my adhesive dots (AD)...put them together...turned out really cute (note to self: pick up more votives).

Went back to get that sandpaper....saw a wooden cake pedestal....took it inside...grabbed a cloche....fits perfect!! Took the non working screw out...filled the hole...waiting for it to dry to sand and prime. Now, back to get that sandpaper!! Finally sanded the wooden's on the paint table to be painted B/W checks.

Now, back to get that box for the decorations....oops! found another cute iron candlestick....went to my dining room to my cabinet...found a nice little Homer Laughlin plate....grabbed a tiny cloche...they fit!! Now, to go grab those ADs...put that together..add a Fitz and Floyd rabbit...too cute!!

While in the cabinet...saw tea cups...decided to add china cups to my dining chandelier! Now, let's see...which cups to use? Grabbed the ones displayed under a cloche....wanted more color...went to the kitchen and a couple from my canisters (note to self: look for red transferware cups to replace).

Went to sun room to find black and white checked ribbon in the chest...found some..not really the one I wanted...but will do till I order more...went back to dining room....added the cups to the chandy....looks really cute!! Now, the chandy needs some shades...will have to buy clips and make some in near future when I add the sleeve and medallion.

Now, back to the decorations!! Finally, packed most...will wait for housekeeper to do rest...

I am exhausted!!!!!
p.s. will post photos tomorrow!
