Friday Goodwill Find:Galvanized Bucket

Dear Friends

My Friday Goodwill Find is a galvanized bucket which I will be gifting to my daughter. Something about galvanized just doesn't fit into my shabby decor but yes I know it's all the rage for "Farmhouse" which my daughter loves. 




Enchanted Moments


Dear Friends

Happy Valentines Day!  I signed up for a Love Is In The Air magazine challenge.  The challenge was to create a magazine cover as if it were one I would create.  I did this with the help of my daughter, Jessica.  She's always known one of my bucket list is to appear on a magazine cover.  Well, I must say this bucket list has been accomplished.  No, it's not on news stands or grocery store shelves but something I never knew I could do.  Thank you Katherine for the invitation and I'm sure this will be a beautiful blog tour.  The winner of my blog anniversary give away....NanaDiana!

 

Friday Goodwill Find:Shabby Cuff Bracelet

Dear Friends

Can you believe I'm still re-purposing from that velvet blouse.  Puffy hearts to a beautiful cuff bracelet, I will wear Valentines Day and through out the year.  Everything is re-purposed, the cuff, the lace from a ugly moo moo my loving man didn't like and a pearl bracelet with broken strands.
Love is in the air and Cupid and Saint Valentine have a special surprise Valentines Day, including my give away for my blog anniversary.  Please leave a comment if you like on my Saving Grace post! Stay tuned for my Valentines Day Post!


Chocolate Charms

Dear Friends

Yes, this is the month of romance!  Valentine's Day and I'm sharing my first chocolate charms.  I've been in the kitchen knowing the way to my Loving Mans heart.  Chocolate, it is the true food of Love!  A Little Chocolate history, in 1849 the Cadbury brothers created the first box of chocolate.  They also created the very first heart shaped box of chocolate.  My friend Claudia let me borrow these chocolate molds and these are my first chocolate charms.  I'm no Cadbury brother but every woman knows the way to her Loving Mans Heart!  I think they are so pretty and my Loving Man will enjoy one at a time during the month of Romance.  I also bought some ruffled pink carnations for myself and created a Valentines vignette for the kitchen.  I hope Cupid is abound at your abode!  You know he has arrows, right!


Friday Goodwill Find:Puffy Hearts

Dear Friends

I've had this velvet blouse I found at Goodwill for sometime, which unfortunately was to small but new I could repurpose it into something pretty.  I made these puffy hearts and painted and spelled LOVE.  How about some beautiful Valentine eye candy to go with the puffy heats.  I've included some of my favorite cherubs on my mantel with porcelain roses.  The blond cherub is my very favorite and included a picture of my mom and dad when they were young and in love.  The architectural piece I found at Hobby Lobby for a song and loved the heart cut out at the top.  Are you in love?  If not my Cupid is ready to shoot his bow and arrow and pierce your heart to stoke the flames of love!
