The View Out the Window & Cricut to The Rescue.

This is the First Christmas we have had snow here since 1969. It is a beauty too.
 Here is a peek out my window.
This is a last minute gift I made for my brothers girlfriend who is always putting sticky
notes on the kitchen counter. Quick and simple. The pen is attached to the back with
a velcro dot.

Brass Lamp Refab

I have been on the hunt for a heavy brass lamp that I could score on the cheap. I have loved all of the Pottery Barnish refabs i have seen all over blog land. So....I was hunting shopping in Goodwill one day and I heard the angels sing. Could it be......a tall sexy brass lamp. Could it really only be $3.50? Yep! Does it work? Yep! In the buggy it went and I am ashamed to say that anyone who even eyed it got the stank eye from me. I would have took somebody down for this beauty.
I rubbed it down with steel wool, cleaned it up and took out the lighting fixture and wiring.
Painted it with "Oil Rubbed Bronze", rewired it with an all in one kit from Lowe's. Picked up a lamp shade from Wal-Mart and all was good until I realized the harp was too big for the shade. Back to Lowe's and got an eight inch harp and no I am lovin it!!!
Light ~ $3.50
Shade ~ $14.99
Light kit ~ 9.99
Harp ~ 4.00
Grand total of $32.48 ~ Not bad if I must say so myself!
What do ya think?

Christmas Art Project & My Favorite Holiday Decor

I wanted to share a project that was inspired by Sarah over at Hennessey House. She is a great artist and has an Etsy site that she sells her work on. Do yourself a favor and check her out.

I have been seeing people using old sheet music and printing on it so I made me a lil' project.

This was inspired by Tracy at ,a href=""target="_blank">Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures.

In the corner on the kitchen counter.

Update on Console Set

I just had to share with you guys. I am so happy..... if my feet felt better I would be jumping up and down and doing the happy dance.

I have had my first refab sale. The best part about it is a friend who moved away saw it on my Facebook and decided she wanted it. She is going to have her brother pick it up and bring it to her over the holidays.
Whoot Whoot!!!!!! What now!!!!!!
I know, I know......I didn't win the lottery but it is still exciting. I am more excited about someone liking my work than the money, and trust me they are both important.
SOLD $100.00
