Do you ever need something and find a way to get it by using something that you already have?Well I found this little Joy sign, for 4.99 at Ole Time Pottery. It was so small I didn't know how I was going to use it. When I decided to do a table scape, I wanted to use it on my table. So I removed this frame an tried it on this easel. But this was u-g-l-y! So on the back there were these hangers and I needed the sign to be larger. So I found two little screws, if you look close you can see them, and screwed them in the frame and hung the tin on the frame. The tin matched the easel perfectly. And there you have it a re-purpose for the holidays. Now you may say, after the holidays you'll have to little holes in your frame. Well I love it so much I plan to keep it as it is, you don't just have joy for the holidays, you want to have joy year round. Then, this is my chandelier in the foyer. I wanted this kind because I love the look when shades are added. I found these shades at Kirkland's about eight years ago. Not on sale though, they cost 7.99 each and I needed ten because I needed six for the dining room. Still not bad they've lasted all this time. But for the holidays I wanted something festive. So I took some of the ribbon that I use on my outside windows, ( I'll show it later) cut it to size and wrapped it around the shade. I used a straight pin to fasten it, and it's also no problem to remove when putting things back the way they were. You won't have to worry about the pin showing because you turn it to the inside of the lamp. So now you have all new shades Fit for the occasion. What will you re-purpose for the holidays? Deb
This picture of Rebecca Alexander is posted on my sidebar to remind me each time I blog, to say a prayer for her. Rebecca has Usher Syndrome Type 3, and has limited vision and hearing but will eventually lose both. This struck me as totally unimaginable and my heart broke reading about it. You can read more about her by clicking here. The full story is posted on the site of the beautiful ladies of, Twice As Nice. I believe that prayer changes things please join me in praying for Rebecca and others with Usher Syndrome each time you visit my blog. Deb
I was born in Birmingham Alabama, it’s home to me, I’ve spent all of my life here. As a matter of fact 98% of my family lives here. What’s good about that? There are no problems getting together for what ever the reason. I live with my husband and my youngest daughter Kandace, she’s 17. I’m a mother of four, two girls and twin boys. My husband is a father of three, all girls. Together we have nine grandchildren, six boys and three girls.
I lost my oldest daughter in 1996 by way of drunk driver, she was 20. This being the lowest point in my life, Jesus never left me nor forsake me and sent to me His comforter. ”Thank You Jesus”. Deb
