So proud of me!!!




071

So, I’ve had this old sugar mold dark wooden piece that went with my rustic theme of wrought iron & bears in our old house.  I’ve had it sitting in the closet, listed on craigslist several times & even taken it to a consignment furniture store (& they wouldn’t take it)…

Since starting this blog – I have been so inspired by how crafty so many of you are!  Me – I’m pretty terrified of ruining something!  But figured I would try with this piece.  So I headed to my local Michael’s craft store & picked up some paint & sandpaper.  Then I found these little glass snowflake candle holders that fit perfectly in the sugar tin molds. & then found a glittery ornament I thought I could take apart!  Just so proud of me how it all came together & I had to share!!!

You should go find my friend Alaina at Arbour House Lane....she loves to garden and yours and hers look very similar. You might get on well.
She is on my side bar and she is a wonderful person...tell her Melissa sent you.

Thank you for stopping by. I haven't been on in a while. Getting ready to post every few days (hopefully) Regarding the chickens: I have had hens with a Russian Wolfhound and they were fine together. My dogs are curious about them, but the chickens really stand their ground and my yorkipoos are fine with them. A good magazine is the Urban Farmer if you ever get a chance to check it out.

Loving all the Christmas touches throughout your home.
