Before and After... well... ok there will be an after. *sigh* I'm not the brightest and I completely forgot to take a picture of my before lamp. Basically it was a wicker cylinder that was falling apart and kinda gross looking.
A lot like this... only uglier... and on an ugly metal base. :) Anyway, I picked up the beauty at my grandmother's house (ready to go out to the trash) along with some spray paint in a fancy named color I will call "white." Now of course things can't be too simple... so this few hour project has turned into half a week so far. It's not my fault though! The weather was a sunny 90 degrees when I got started... and now it's 40 something and raining! ugh! Anyway, after pictures to come, my loves!
Thanks for stopping by!
Here's what's coming up!
30 days of Thankfulness!
My first attempt at reapolstry (with before pix I promise)
Before and after pictures of the bathroom, the back door and the fireplace
And much more love!!!
Have a great Wednesday y'all!

Ok, I'm in tears. I'm at work and I'm in tears. I was just reading over at The Gypsy Mama (yes I know it's from September... I'm a newby blog addict!) and my heart is fluttering in my chest. I can't give monetarily. I am going through a difficult time "living like no one else so that later I can LIVE like no one else!" and GIVE like no one else. But for now I'm sticking to what I can. I tithe (don't judge but this is new to us... and what a blessing it has been). I've also been giving of my new found couponing skills (free toothpaste and dish soap to the lady who watches Braden... I was surprised how grateful she was). On top of that, I have been giving on my home. I am decluttering, and taking bag upon bag to the Benevolance Center up at church. But now, I'm on the phone with Compassion waiting to speak with a representative on how I can become a child correspondant. This is so exciting!
