He lights up my life....

We had friends downstate who were antique dealers,
They sold there home and moved to Florida!
A younger couple had bought their home and took down all the light fixtures
{they didn't want that "old junk" in their home}
They had a yard sale and had all the light fixtures marked $2.00 each!
I said ,before I even got close to them "I'll take them all!"
Everyone at the sale looked at me like I was nuts I had'nt even gotten close enough to look at them yet!!!!
I know a deal when I see one!

This is the before of just one of the light fixtures

This is the after...
hubby hung it in the "Princess suite" for me!

We have lived here for 6 years and I have been bugging him to hang all those vintage lights for me... finally one went up yesterday!
I have 3 more similar to this one and 6 chandeliers {yes 6}
I want one in every room! :-)

Have a blessed day

Happy PINK Saturday

Thank you for coming by to visit on this beautiful PINK saturday!
This week I have been cleaning and foo fooing the princess suite!
{it's our guest room}
We call it the princess suite because I want my mum, daughters, granddaughters and girl friends to feel like a princess when they come to stay!
Come on in and take a look around!
{it is not quite finished but you get the idea}

I want to re-do that lamp shade...... when I find the right fabric!

I painted that rose trellis plate many many years ago!

This sign was purchased from one of my favorite sign painters on ebay!

I bought these scrolly metal thingys for the windows! I thought they'd be cute but I am not sure.... still not happy with them!

I painted the twin beds and added the chenille spreads
but I really want to go to Home goods to find pink quilts!

{can you tell I love Besse Peases' art}

Are'nt these the sweetest lil baby shoes? I love them
An antique boutique find!
We all agree ...... A girl can never have too many pillows .... Right?
Most of mine came from my wonderful sister Suzy....
she takes such pride in her work and her sewing is beyond perfect!

Want to get a pillow or two for your self?

Click here to visit her boutique and see what she has
or ask her to create a pillow that will make your heart melt!

I have this pet peeve about putting furniture in front of windows... it drives me nutso!
In this room I had no choice.
I pulled the curtains back...
I love the windows uncovered even in the winter,

hung a vintage lace tablecloth on a rod on the bottom half of the window...
I haven't been outside to see what it looks like from out there yet!
but I need some suggestions ladies!
I trust your judgment and would love to hear your ideas!

What do I do to not see the back of the headboard from outside
but not block the whole window!

HELP!!!!! :-)

I hope you enjoyed your visit..... if you need to see more PINK read my previous posts...
I think I have been on a PINK roll lately!

Also visit Beverly at how sweet the sound for more gals showing their PINK!
