First of all.....how on earth did it get to be the END OF JUNE!!!!??!!
Secondly, welcome to White Wednesday, hosted by Kathleen at Faded Charm Cottage.....
This is a cheap-o thrift store chandelier that I removed the eletrical wiring from, gave a few coats of white spray paint and added some crystals to.
Pink and white are always so pretty together!
Today I placed my little chandy into my birdbath amid this lovely pink rose for a little photo shoot, but it usually hangs from a bird cage stand in my backyard.
Hope you are enjoying your White Wednesday.
Happy day!

Welcome to another White Wednesday at Rust & Ruffles (previously known as junkdreams)....
Today I wanted to show you a little chair that I have had in the garage forever...I finally finished it up this week and had a chance to snap some pictures of it outside between rain storms.

Sitting on top of the chair is a gorgeous "crown" jar my dad gave me from his collection.
Please visit Kathleen's blog and check out all the White Wednesday participants.

 I have been wanting to participate in Vintage Black Friday for awhile and am finally getting my act together to do so. 
Today I thought I would show you a thrift store lamp that I re-vamped a couple months back.
I stamped strips of torn sheet with one of the stamps from my "Paris" set and then glued them to the frame of the shade.

The lamp started out as a brass piece and I gave it a few coats of black spray paint......VOILA.... instantly transformed to a piece that I love.
Thanks so much for all the encouraging comments about my new blog name!!!
Happy weekend everyone....I'll be working nightshifts at the hospital!
Please visit the frenchcupboard for links to the other VBF participants.

Eek!!!!!  Have I mentioned that I don't really like change!!??!!!  Well I am really changing things up with a new blog name!!!!  I have been wanting to change the name of my blog/company for awhile now in order to better reflect what I do. 
  I hope the name change won't be confusing for people as I really would be so sad if it caused me to lose any of my precious followers.
Thank you again for following my blog and the wonderful comments you leave that keep me feeling inspired and motivated!!!!  Let me know what you think of the new name!
Happy day!
