Such a Romantic Idea

My neighbor has the postcard her grandfather used to propose to her grandmother. She had it blown up to poster size and framed it on her wall. Love the look and it's so romantic!

Look at the year stamped on this baby!

Hope ya'll are accomplishing all of your Holiday tasks....but 
remember the reason for the season!

Quick Bathroom Light Project

We know you have all seen these light fixtures...ugh they are so drab. They have got to be one of the ugliest bathroom fixtures ever made. They do, however, serve a purpose...tons of light and if you look closely at the pics below you will see an extra power outlet on the silver part of the bar. An important addition in older homes that have few outlets.  We just moved in to our house and haven't quite figured out what to do with this light yet. We knew we couldn't live with it for much longer so we decided to embelish it until we figure out a solution.
We didn't want to wander out in the cold so we needed to use something we had around the house. We went on a hunt for something shiny and a bit colorful. The bathroom is painted a pale turquoise so these glass pebbles we found in a junk drawer caught our eye. After playin' around with them a bit...this is what we came up with.
We glued them on and this is how they turned out!  LOVE it! Maybe we'll keep it this way. What do you think?
Don't forget our next show is in Hillsboro, Oregon
 at the Washington County Fairgrounds Feb 1 & 2, 2013.
