Do YOU Crave Change?

Do You Crave Change?

 I have been working on my son's wedding that is coming up on Nov. 2. I have not shared anything with you because I don't want to spoil the surprise. It's going to be in a barn in Kansas. So far I have made burlap table runners, chalkboards, canning jar looking banner, and 8 men vests. Today, I will be making tags for the wedding party. These tags will go on their stemmed canning jar glasses. My soon to be daughter-in-law has been working amazingly hard on making everything. She made all the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages out of wheat, burlap roses and twine. She designed and made beautiful invitations...and I just can't wait to head out for this special time. Of course I will share all when I return.

I crave change and wanted to stop and take some time for doing some creating! Initially, my kitchen window looked like this...
I am blessed with a large area to be able to decorate. I have had this silver teapot lamp for a long time and I was ready for a change. So I painted it sort of like MacKenzie Childs and changed the shade to document fabric. (Not shown)

It still was not working for me.
Then Decor Steals had two of these hanging candle baskets for only $27 + $5 shipping. I ordered them because I knew I could easily electrify them.
I took some time out of my day yesterday and created this...
I'm very happy with the change!

  1. Terri, that is such a unique light and so cute. Great transformation....Cathy

  2. Oh wow that turned really petty what a great idea ;)


  3. A wire basket always wins my heart, but your light fixture transformation is beyond beautiful.

  4. Nice change, Terry. I like the added texture and the natural elements.

  5. Good decision! I love the electrified version!

  6. Love what you did. Looks great. Wish you would give a tutorial showing how to electrify something for lighting.

  7. Perfect whimsy! I cannot wait to see and hear all about the wedding details!

  8. I love what you did with this wire basket! I highlighted this tonight on my blog for Centerpiece Wednesday :)

  9. I highlighted this post tonight on my blog www.thestylesisters.blogspot.com for Centerpiece Wednesday!! Karin


It makes me smile to hear from you!
