 Good Morning!
Remember I told you last week that I wanted to spruce up my master bedroom. There were 2 things that it needed. (Now only 1) The shades on my ceiling fan were very pretty but they were an amber color. Which cast a warm/dark light on the room. So~we ordered new clear glass shades for $45 on line. And the result was instant bright light! Now I just need that fresh coat of paint (same color) and I'll be happy as a clam.  It might take a couple of weeks though. We are working on cleaning out my son's room which is a major task! He's 12! And then we're painting and decorating his room! So mom's on the back burner~isn't that typical!  :)

Great yard sale finds~

 Matt found this adorable egg topiary for me at a yard sale last Saturday for $1~

I found this frame (yes the glass is cracked but I can replace it cheaply) on Friday for $1. I loved the frame and knew that I had some great pink scrapbook papers to choose from to put inside!

Before and After pic~

Also on Friday I bought this fabulous wooden candlestick and solid brass with verdi gris finish urn! Each was a $1

So~that's a whopping $4 for the items above!

Sometimes we come home with a truckload sometimes just a few items. But it's always exciting to spend $4 and come home with 4 great new decorating finds!Now off to the auction Friday night!
Wish me luck...
