Whew, I made it! I was beginning to wonder myself... but I figured that if I wrote that I would be here for WW on yesterday's post, well there was no going back! You see with Cams party and all of the crazy that goes along with getting ready for that well I haven't been able to do much of anything else. I signed up to do the soapbox challenge and had some great ideas for it but alas as it turns out I just bit off more than I could chew (as my mom would say) not that I won't ever do it but I just couldn't get it done on time. Anyone out there able to relate? Sooooo on with WW, Thanks Kathy! I do love this party so much! Today I went upstairs, in my recently cleaned room :) and thought I'd show you a little bit of it... I got this Madonna at a sale a while ago but she was too brightly colored for me so I antiqued her with a little glaze, perfect!
She is holding an old photo that quite honestly I just spontaneously put on her hands and well it has just never left her. The crystal base next to her is an old ashtray base that lights up. The top of it broke, it was just a large crystal plate I think so maybe one day I will repair it but for now it is a fabulous night light, yep the bottom lights up, how cool is that? Now you know why I could never get rid of it! They sit on this double dresser that I bought at a garage sale and was the beginning of one of my best friendships ever! The couple who sold it to me are now my dearest friends.
Love me some hanky boxes, no matter how tattered.
I have had this hand forever, and it has been through all of our homes, resting somewhere. Here it holds some of my necklaces and a couple of rosaries. You hold the key... I have shown before, I made it for Duane for our anniversary a while back.
Another shot of the dresser, it's so big it really holds too much stuff on top but when I would take some away it looked so bare. sigh. See the old phone to the right? It was in the house when we bought it and actually works! It's not hooked up right now but I just love ANYTHING old! now Duane is sighing! cuz you know it's true ;)
So this is the other side of the room, really I want to change this whole room and one day (you know when I'm not toooooo busy) I will. I fell in love with this waverly pattern the first time I saw it and actually have it downstairs in the living room as pillows too. I would love to have this room be shades of white and definitely get rid of the wall color and the carpet. another sigh.
Well that's it for today, now I'm going to go link up and check out what everyone else is sharing today. Show and tell was always my favorite subject in kindergarten wasn't it yours? :)
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa xoxo
