Do you have crystal chandeliers? I have several. As I began to decorate for Christmas, I looked at my dining room chandelier and thought "oh yuck"! Way too much dust. They didn't even sparkle. Should have taken a picture when it was dirty.
Someone posted awhile back about how to clean crystal chandeliers, but I forgot to save it so that was out.
It is rather overcast today so I had the lights on.
What a week I have had, the flu caught up with me and took me down. All I wanted to do was to crawl in bed and sleep. However, the dogs had other ideas. We spend a lot of time outdoors and they wanted to be outside. They were not sick.
When the dogs were little, I taught them to ring a bell, tied to the door handle, when they had to go to the bathroom. Well, that bell was ringing off the handle. Every time I would lie down on the sofa, the bell would ring. After a few days, the bell came down. I did manage to work on this cutting board that was my grandma-in-law's.
Not sure what this was. Seems like something you might find in a service station that holds some car parts.
Found it in the trash and decided to take it home, since I can't seem to leave perfectly good items go in the trash. Now that I have it, I have no idea what to do with this bright orange thing. Any ideas ????
Remember those great free rocking chairs I got from my neighbor? Well, we use them all the time and I wanted to give them a fall update. I had hoped to post this before Halloween, but that never happened. As you can see, I had a Halloween pillow on one of the rockers. It has since been removed.
I created the Autumn banner by cutting up some fabric I had - brown and tan canvas.
I cut some rectangles and then folded them to cut some points.
Then I used letters that I had purchased from Walmart that I used in my Fall plaque.
I placed the letter on the fabric and then used a magic marker to fill in the letter.
I attached the letters to some twine with my hot glue gun. I had purchased the basket at Long and Scott Farms for $2 - lid included.
We have tea out here in the evenings while the dogs play and we talk about our day.
These rocking chairs are just great and we are using them all the time. Not bad for something free. What shall I do with them for Christmas?
