Thrift Store Brass Lamp Makeover

Thrift Store Brass Lamp Makeover
Today I have another thrift store makeover for you guys. Again, an easy one! I love knocking these “quickies” off my project list. Here are the $4 brass lamps I started with. Very old and dingy. I always start by using a damp rag, along with warm water and vinegar to clean each piece. If I wasn’t using spray paint, and I wanted to keep the lamps brass, I would have just shined them up with Barkeeper’s Friend. In this case, I definitely wanted to spray paint.Continue Reading

Florals and Fur


It’s Thursday, Valentine’s Day!!!!! I want to wish you all a very Happy Heart Day! Even if you don’t have a significant other, you should still make the best of it. Buy yourself something…… HUMPH! I know I would!

Anyway, as I was editing these pics, I was wondering why on earth I never wore this blazer. It is just too darn cute! It’s a great cut & the pattern is amazing. I have entirely too many blazers that Continue Reading

Hey Loves! Hope all is well. I had such a relaxing New Year. I even got up & cooked the “traditional” New Year’s menu, which I rarely do. I also don’t make New Year’s resolutions. Why should I wait until the new year to start setting goals for myself? I set them all year long. I strive to do better every day.

I have been getting a lot of questions about my hair routine. Honestly, I haven’t developed one yet. Is that bad? Most of the time, my hair is a wash & go. I just can’t seem to get a routine down pat. Continue Reading

Holiday Attire

Hi Guys!  Since the month of December has rolled in, the Christmas Holiday is right around the corner. That means parties, work events, and tons of social gatherings. Now the question is “What do I wear”? Normally, the ladies love to go all out in sequins & glitter, gowns & party dresses. I’m just not that gal. I do love a little glitz & glam, Continue Reading

Small Business Saturday 11/24

Will you be tackling those crowds at Black Friday this year?  I’ll be in my bed looking at all the madness on the news. Don’t get me wrong, I was once a die hard Black Friday shopper, but people have gotten so crazy lately. Now I’m more of a Cyber Monday kinda gal. And please don’t forget about Small Business Saturday. They need our support way more than those huge retailers do. I thought I’d share some of my favorite small Continue Reading

I appreciate all of your prayers, thoughts, emails, Continue Reading

Orange Creamsicle

As you may have noticed, I cut my hair a little. I get extremely bored with the same ole same ole, and decided to do something just a little different. I went to my barber & had him cut my sides & back down. I still have length on the top but most of the time, I wear it curly, so you can’t tell. Can you believe I was so bored with my hair that IContinue Reading
