Things I love!

I can't believe it's Sunday already. 
I've been working on a few things, but they aren't quite ready to show off just yet. So I thought I would share a couple of little things I've done, or am working on. 
I was passing by a local GW the other day and thought I would stop in there. 
I found a couple of little things there that I could turn into something wonderful. 
 First I found this sweet candle holder. Its hand made by someone named John Rose. I love the shape and the colour, but it isn't exactly what I had in mind for my project.

 This hurricane glass is HUGE. 13 inches tall and very heavy. Hmmm I can't wait to get to work on that :)
 And who doesn't love candles? It's one of my addictions (of which I have to many)
Sea salt is the scent. mmmm just so fresh, I love it. 
I was also given three mirrors. They were black, and as always I forgot to take before pictures. 
I did however take after pics. of my new fav colours. :) 
They turned out perfect. 
I'm going to add them to my office when I'm done. 
What do you think? 

 Aren't they cute?
I have a couple of other things to show off, but will add them once I am done coffee. (integral part of my life you ) 

Have coffee and pics :) 
 Aren't these the cutest? Painted one that wonderful teal...but decided that I couldn't have EVERYTHING in that colour. So the other one got an amazing blue makeover.

 Then in the process of all my little buys I was given this utterly cute bag at GW to carry my treasures home. 

I have never seen a rice bag with handles and a zipper. This is a keeper for sure. I was almost just as excited to bring this home as I was the treasures inside. (I know, I'm losing it) Gotta love GW at times :)

    1. I was thinking of the pillow..but I think my husband is going to steal this and keep it in his truck for when he "finds small stuff" He's really starting to enable me in my
