1 milk glass vase;
2 deep frames (that I hope to display some keys in);
2 small black mirrors; some small books I needed for stacking (plan to paint and stamp them);
2 nice shaped bottles; and one glass “thingy” that I hope to use as a dome;
1 large bird cage (YES… the flowers are being trashed!!);
2 white glass candle holders;
2 small matching angel vases;
1 bird dish (top comes off);
1 globe (my favorite find... cost $4.95 – going to antique it);
1 decorative shelf (but going to use it in a different way);
1 small bird cage with bird on top;
1 small glass bell with bird on top; and
1 white bird.
PHEW!!! Not bad at all for a Tuesday!!!
I’m really excited that I’m FINALLY getting to the point where I can start displaying/using some of these treasures. It seems like the painting and redecorating has been going on FOREVER!!! Having been ill for so long, I have had to take it slow and easy to get everything done. Trying to look through all the boxes I have stashed away has proven to be a bit difficult, so I decided to set out everything in my dining room. It’s been so long since I’ve seen some of these things that it’s almost like going shopping in my own house!! LOL I’m almost embarrassed to show you this, but this is what my dining room looks like right now. Keep in mind that I am pretty much redoing our entire downstairs, plus a bathroom upstairs, AND I've been collecting this items for quite a while (yes, I’m trying to justify all this stuff!!!) Plus... there are still a bunch of frames and a couple more boxes in the garage. And just in case you’re wondering… this is BEFORE I bought the stuff today. I’m sure that you can understand that I DID need all the
Keep in mind that almost everything you see was bought on sale… either purchased at Goodwill, garage sales, or 80% to 90% off at Hobby Lobby. I would NEVER have been able to get all these things at full price!! I can’t wait to put everything together!!
I LOVE to read all your comments!!!
