I can't believe that it has been 10 days since my last post. Sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging! First of all, Gage is doing great. Thank you for all your prayers and sweet comments. He seems as good as new :) He has been happy and shows no signs of the horrible seizure he had. Tomorrow he is going rafting on the Sandy river! Tonight his physical therapist texted me to tell me she promises to keep him the raft...she knows how much I worry!
I have been so busy with so many things going on in our feline family...some happy, some sad, all deserving of a post I will do soon. I have also been busy with some sewing projects...and trying to stay cool because I once again feel like I have been in a oven for a few weeks. Really looking forward to being revived by some clouds and good old Oregon rain! I don't get much sleep in this kind of weather and with everything that goes in with the kids this time of year. I am always on "seizure watch" too. I would really love to get some sleep....soon!
But what I wanted to share today is a little beauty I found a couple weeks ago at Thrift City.
I was so happy I almost did a happy dance when I saw this old crystal chandelier marked $19.99...and then it was half price day so I got it for $10!
That fits into my Kool Aid budget just fine.
It has the old wiring and I didn't know if it would work...or need to be rewired. For $10 there was no way I was leaving without it.
It looks quite old to me. Anybody have any ideas how old it might be?
It had 2 missing candle sleeves and so I bought new ones at Ace hardware. I put spray glue on them and sprinkled them with white gold glitter. Now they match :)
My husband is so handy he rewired it to hang as a swag chandelier and I made a cord cover with some white satin my Mom found at a garage sale.
Then my husband checked all the wiring and made sure it was safe....
and it works!
I am pretty delighted with this find.
I hope this finds everyone staying cool and enjoying the summer. I hope to get to all your blogs soon and see what you have been up too!
Tonight we had a birthday party for little Bunny FuFu at Janae's house. Happy Birthday FuFu...and many more!
Thanks for visiting!
