Hanging Chandeliers And Briollettes...


Hello friends, I spent much of this past week changing out all of my old fixtures for new sparkly ones and prepping my dining room for a good ol' face lift. Changing out fixtures, tables, chairs and hanging wallpaper, this should promise to be the time of my life (kidding). But all joking aside, this will be a real labor of love, but it will be so worth it, as I have not used my dining room for 'dining' in years! Looking forward to this 'to do' list project and I will post pictures here, of the finished project.

Even though this chandelier is not so old, I love the old world effect it leaves on my bedroom. This fixture really makes a statement....



The new dining room fixture...didn't really like it at first, but after we got it up and hanging I fell in LOVE with it...





The new guest bathroom vanity fixture...


...and some new pieces I finished this past week. They will be available to view in my Etsy shop early this afternoon...









Happy Sunday to you all! 
I will keep you updated on the remodel and I will
see you back here real soon!

Mountain Run...



Just getting back in from a quick trip to the mountains...had to check on a few things and do a bit of summer maintenance on our happy place. I never knew how much work a little 'chalet' in the woods could be!
We did get to enjoy some really lovely weather in between the tasks we had before us....


The picture and arrow below (taken from the highway in the valley below us) shows how hard we are nestled into the side of the mountain and it's dense tree line. We are up about 3500 feet elevation.


The hot tub was one of the projects on the agenda...and wow this thing is a lot of up keep...after the fix, we thought we would take a dip and enjoy our hard earned effort to get it back up and running!


...I've also finished some earrings for this week's shop listings...








These will be available in my Etsy shop later today! 
Happy Weekend Everyone!

Patriotic Pieces...


 Managed to get a few pieces finished this week even though a few hurdles got in my path...and by that I mean the 'always fun' computer meltdown and the very scary occurrence of a sick little fur baby.
The new pieces this week are gonna be some great "go to" jewels for all of your presidential election celebrations and parties, and they are just great all around pieces for the inner "Patriot" that resides in us all!








... I will be listing these early Sunday as I have to scoot out of town at the beginning of the week 
 for just a few days.
So come join me early Sunday morning to see more pictures of them. 
Happy weekend everyone!
