I'm getting crafty!..........

Hey everyone!  I have been really excited to begin decorating our new home, however, I didn't want to break the bank.  I have been browsing Pintrest for ideas and came across this one.  A store here in Carlsbad sells these jars just like this for $30 a piece!
I used Krylon Looking glass for the mercury finish.  Apply in mutliple thin coats to the  inside of the jar to create a mirror finish.

I am loving burlap right now!   I found these flowers at Hobby Lobby and thought they would add a nice touch.

Boutique jars, $30.  My mason jar was $5 plus an additional $5 for the paint that can be used multiple times.  $20 savings!  Yay!

Faith and Patience

Hey everyone! I know I haven't written in a very long time, but I'm back!  We are finally homeowners again.  It has been a long exhausting process with lots of ups and downs.  But God was teaching me to have faith, and when I did he blessed me beyond measure!

We are busy getting settled in our new house, and our moving truck will be here with our stuff next Thursday.   Yippee! I get my bed back!  In the meantime, I have been picked up pieces along the way to decorate with.  I have found a great antique store that has really great prices.  I have been in there a lot, and I will be refinishing several things I have bought there.  For those of you who have me on Instagram, you have already seen the mirror and lamp.  Stay tuned, I will post the projects on here.  So for now, sit back and enjoy the tour!
