I'm A "M" Junky

The Letter "M"


I was looking around my home and noticed that I have collected the letter M a few times...I think ever since I was a little girl I loved the number "8" and the letter "M"....so glad my Mom named me Maureen AKA Mo :-)










Have a Wonderful Day;;;


Hugs,


Mo :-)

P.S. I use the cute wine glasses 2 ways.....I put a little rice in it and then a candle on top and use it as a candle holder.....and of course to have a glass of "wine" once in a while...:-)

More Change

Is Less More ?.... Well Sometimes :-)

As the saying goes is less more....my coffee table is definitely less....I cleared off some "stuff" and moved things around... for now I like it...more of a clean look....



I wish I could say the same for the entry table ... I started out with less and ended up with "more"...sometimes rules cannot be followed :-).....in my case anyway....


I just had to put "more" treasures on the silver tray...couldn't help myself...


have a wonderful day....

Hugs,

Mo :-)

Homemade Is Best

Rag Lamp Shade :-)

I have been away from doing homemade projects for a while....I'm starting in again and started with this adorable lamp shade....I got the idea from a shade my friend Sharon bought.....very simple....I was so excited to start this project I forgot to take before pictures.....I took an old lamp shade (bought at the thrift store) tore off the cover sprayed painted the frame antique white ...then cut strips about 6 or 7 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches wide....of about 5 or 6 different fabric in the same shades but different textures......just do what looks good to you...and be very generous with the strips when tying around the top and bottom of the wire shade....I tied one at a time alternating the fabric....it took about 2 hours or so......

I put this shade over a lamp shade I had...you can put it over a shade or it can be by it-self over a pretty light bulb...

completed shade.....

this is the lamp I put the rag shade over.....


and of course I had to have one in Pink ....


Have a Wonderful Day.....

Hugs,

Mo :-)

"Sweet Pink"

When my Grand-daughter Ailish was born a friend gave me a rose bush called Baby Blanket....the pale pink roses are small and delicate....I found the cute little bud vase at Z Gallerie last week and had the perfect rose to put int it....I attached it to my bathroom mirror....I love seeing the sweet little rose...something so small put a smile on my face.....






Have a wonderful day...

Shopping Is GOOD For You !

I heard on the news this morning that Shopping is GOOD for you....well, I have to admit that it was a fun day yesterday....My BFF Sharon and I went to a once a month gathering of several women that love the thrill of the hunt and we get to SHOP.....I found this clock, I have a thing for clocks,...only $16...I have it in my living room and I love the change......I also thought this was a great idea for old bottles you might have hanging around the house, picture shown above....


I thought this was a clever way to display candles...


Sharon found this cute little table ..it holds Magazines..books etc. and also the lamp shade....she put it over another shade on her cute little lamp....


we did have a great day shopping....so I have to believe that Shopping is REALLY good for you...

Have a wonderful day....

Hugs,

Mo :-)
