Hocus Pocus!

Halloween is almost here! 
The lights are on.
We're waiting to hear the sound of 
children at the door.
Lots of Halloween Candy.
Boo to our little guests...
Can't wait to see their faces.
When they see the decorations.
And we fill their bags with candy.

~ Happy Halloween Mirror and Simple & Sweet Fridays #34 ~

I love this idea of a mirror with ornaments.
I had it in the house last year, 
but thought it would be fun on the porch this year.
I placed it above my French Garden Chair.
I collected all kinds of fun ornaments to use on  the mirror for Halloween.
I just used a hot glue gun and let
 my imagination go.
Pier 1 and Target have a good selection.

Hope you like this idea.
When it's Christmas, 
I'll show you another mirror I made.
You can use a small or big mirror depending on what you'd like. 
Over your mantel or in your entryway, are some ideas.
Have fun with it!

~Autumn Chandelier~

I'm so excited to share with you, I found the perfect chandelier for our house. We love to spend time with family and friends in our family room. The fireplace is in the same room, 
so it's a warm comfortable place to celebrate the holidays. 
Since we moved into the house 20 years ago, 
I have always wanted to have more light and there is no overhead lighting.
The corner of the room seemed like the best solution to put the chandelier. 
The color of the light fixture was too dark for the room
 and I wanted to lighten it up.
I decided to paint it and knew the detail of the lamp was going to be a challenge for me.
I love the coverage of the Annie Sloan paint 
and picked Old White for the color.
It took me about 2 hours to paint the lamp 
and only put one coat on. 
 I love the way it turned out for the room.
I now have a new chandelier for the holidays with a little 
bling to go with it.
