My love of Iron Lamp Posts




Hello my fellow bloggers! 
I seemed to be attracted to iron lamp posts on our trip to Europe this summer... 
As we are sitting here in sunny Arizona going over our photographs I see a theme involving allot of lamp posts so I thought I would share some of them with all of you today.








Some are in The Netherlands and others are in Paris & Belgium... I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.







































 Have a wonderful week!

Blessings,
Wanda

Shabby Vintage



Happy New Year!
Imagine my excitement when I came across another shabby vintage store here in the Mesa area! My Front Porch is a new store that opened just over four months ago and they are expanding another 2000 sq ft already. Saturday the 17th they are holding an outdoor sale with over 20 other vendors and you know I will be there early to catch all the great deals! 




My first visit I purchased this Atlas mason jar and the lovely blue crocheted piece. 




I just love how the chair fabric looks with the new piece.



Once we returned home I wandered around and gathered things that I wanted to display on our dining table and we are loving the new look.






Good luck in your treasure hunting this week.
Thank you for stopping in today! 

Blessings, 
Wanda

Folding Chair Lady Bug Redo


Thank you for stopping in today. I am sharing the latest project I have on the go. When we bought our winter home in Arizona we inherited eight folding chairs and a card table.
While visiting IKEA yesterday I came upon this red and white   
fabric and just knew I wanted to use it to recover these chairs and table. Thank goodness I saw this idea on PINTEREST...  
I love how they are turning out, what do you think?

Happy New Year!
Hugs,
Wanda

Merry Christmas to all my Blogging friends!
I hope you enjoy a glimpse at some of our holiday decor in Arizona. 




I just love the reindeer all decked out in her gold bow...



This year I can not seem to get enough of these small silver ornaments...








The candle stick is new to us from a local Used Boutique 



My little Ball sealer looks so pretty with a touch of ribbon and a tea light candle.






This silver candle holder was another find at the local Goodwill and she looks cute on the silver hotplate stand...








The next three photos are of some handmade Christmas cards I purchased at a sale in our Park. The colours are perfect and I think I will hold onto them for displaying. 







I hope your Holidays are filled with Love, Laughter & Family as you celebrate the Birth of Christ...
Blessings,
Wanda
