Thrifty Treasures: Chandelier

Sunday, July 5, 2009


This beauty came from a local thrift shop....I could kick myself because we removed one JUST like this from our old house and donated it...shoot.

I scratched it up with sandpaper, sprayed a bit of primer on it, then spray painted it!


It's all finished and hanging above the table in the schoolroom! I'll be posting pics of that and my most recent chair re-do soon.

For TONS more perusing of others' thrifty treasures head on over to

Rhoda's at Southern Hospitatlity!

Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free!

John 8:32


The kids and I did a little crafting yesterday. We made 4th of July Pinwheels!
You can find the full tutorial here :) They turned out really cute....


May God bless you all today as we celebrate our freedom. Freedom in the USA. Freedom to worship. Freedom to choose Jesus. Thank you to all the service men and women who have courageously stood for our freedoms!

I find myself rocking my baby longer and longer each night. And I really don't mind still getting up in the middle of the night to nurse him........

Psalm 144:4
Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow
