Let There Be Light!!!!

See this little beauty of a pendant light fixture?
Cute but not real pretty?
(We've all met girls like that.)
Poor thing was on sale at GW for $1.49.
She had no self dignity left.
Insert one junker at heart, a can of Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint,

and an electrician who just HAPPENS to be
your husband.
(Yes that is sweat.. I'm a hard taskmaster.)
And you have one very pretty light.
She just needed a little makeup.
(oh, and a $8 globe from Lowe's.)
For ten dollars, she feels like a million bucks.
I love the soft glow she gives in my hallway now.
Just divine!

I'm participating in  Southern Hospitality Thrifty finds
and Between Naps on the Porch Metamorphasis Monday
along with Sanctuary Arts at Home for a Before and After.
Go check them and all the ladies who have participated out!!

Relaxation Inspiration

As most of us in America take a day to celebrate Labor Day
and seek rest and relaxation from slaving away on our jobs,
I thought that I would provide some inspiration for such an event.
Better Home and Gardens
Imagine going to your place of solitude.
Your haven from the rest of the world.
A place where you could lounge on your daybed and read
while dining on fresh fruit.
Country Living
A place where you could take long soaks
in your bathtub and forget all of your troubles.

Maybe you would enjoy a cup of tea.

Or dine by candlelight in sheer serenity.
Whatever you do today, don't forget to take time to stop
and smell the roses and just relax.
I'm going to work on some projects.
(It relaxes me, okay?)
