(Mele thinks all the picture taking MUST be about her!)
I save everything, almost, and had saved these old brackets. Now I know why.
There were four of them and only three have turned up but I decided to spray them Colonial Red and add them to the porch. Yep. They match the trim..and the shutters..and I like them.
The fourth one will appear sooner or later.. :)
This is what they looked like before I took spray paint to them..
Interesting how little things like this can give you a boost! The funny thing must have been watching Patient Husband and I get those things attached. I probably got in the way more than I helped. Every time the man gets up on a ladder lately, I am right there with my hand on his butt or on his leg..
Over protective...probably! :)
AND they match my newly painted flower pot..which used to be charcoal gray.
Now if the other bracket turns up... well...look at it like this. It keeps us busy! :)
Heart on the front door...
I found this pretty glass bead at a second hand store yesterday and added it...
Now it looks like this! :)
I LOVE doing this sort of thing..I really do!
Yesterday I went off alone to a second hand shop in an alley...and came home with more than just that glass bead. I'll show you tomorrow!
Garage sale Saturday with my daughter and husband was SO much fun...
I've been polishing THIS for the past two days...
I bought the entire box for $5.00. There were a couple of sterling pieces in the box but the rest was silver plate, which I love. My collection is growing and growing. Today I began sorting...
Knives are scarce for some reason. I wonder what people do with the dinner knives?
No complete sets, yet, but it's so much fun seeing so many pretty patterns...and watching go them from an ugly blackened mess to such beauty. I like to mix and match anyway. It's hard to believe that people get rid of such lovely things..instead of polishing them and enjoying their beauty.
Tell me...do you polish your silver? It's a little work but so worth it...
Which way do you like or ...like many, not at all?
Have a wonderful Wednesday and thank you for sticking with me. I love you for it!!
