About Me

Just messing around

I was just piddeling around today with my camera, and taking some pictures for e-bay, so, I shot a couple of my dining room area.  Iam always changing stuff, so today I came up with this arrangement.  Deer horns, a small inital pillow, and tussie cone I made, and some tea stained coffee filter flowers. 
My homemade candle holders from posts and the once green iron pot, now white, with a revised ping pong paddle that I made to look like a auction paddle, I painted it and added numbers and ruffed it up a little. 

My newest obsession....no, not the trophys.(they are my old obsession), but, the altar crucifix's...they are so awesome.....Always on the hunt for those and trophys!!
Looking at the side wall of my dining room, A friend gave me those awesome columns, can you believe that?  He also gave me the window frame up there with the altar crosses on it.  He's a guy, so, I guess he dont know what he gave away!!  He he.. I'll never tell!!     Thanks for stopping by!!   Rhonda

Things I have purchased from blogger's

First off I must say, If I were a wealthy woman, I would be broke!  I love so much to visit around bloggers shops and sites, I get so lost in them and I love it!!  I wanted to share some of my purchases with you guys, such as the bottle drying rack I purchased from Ruth @ http://www.thebeautifullife.com/.  It is very handy.  I have also just got in the mail yesterday from Ruth the tin mans puff heart, subway art matches and the 2 sacred heart's.  Stole the idea for the puff heart...sorta!

I also purchased the awesome glove mold from Andrea @ http://www.fadedplains.com/, I have it sitting on a shelf in my kitchen!!  I haven't written on it yet, but, I will!! 

I have totally been dying for one of these bottle carriers, but, did not want to sell my first born to get one!  I found this one from Margo's etsy shop @ www.etsy.com/robolady/shop

I also just had to have these old flower frogs from www.etsy.com/lisabretrostyles/shop they awesome for holding any type of cards, recipes, etc.  
Iam waiting for the mailman to bring my lavender sachets....another trophy, and 2 crucifix cross's. 
Iam wondering....Is Donald Trump single???????

Thanks for stopping by!!  Rhonda

From The Rooftop- To my Kitchen

This is one of the projects I have been wanting to do.  I got it done today!! Yea Me!!  This is one of the 3 turbines I got from my Dad's junkpile.  After disconnecting some stuff from it, and cleaning the other stuff that was left,  I cut a hole in the top with some tin snips, and attached the light kit.  I still need to make a cord cover,  (from burlap, of course). 

I think I like her!!!

Wow!  You Ladies really know how to hurt a gal.  I sign on, only to find another loss of a follower.  Hey, I know that Iam not the bomb or a fountain of information, never claimed to be, But it is really discouraging, especially since I only have 63 anyhow.  (oops, 62)  About 2 weeks ago, it was 64, then 63, and then 62 again.  Sorry Iam sooo boring!! 

I was going to post about my first re-upholstery job on my grandmothers antique chair, but, now I think I will just go woller in self pity..  

This is the ugly old green vinyl chair,  It had thousands of tacks and dust bunnies.  It had several layers of fabrics.  It is a product of the 50's green and yuck.  Iam not sure of the true age.  There is dark wood trim that goes around the top and sides.  The back part looks like a face.  I still have some work to do on it, but here is what she looks like now. 
I still need to sew the cover for the seat, Its just wrapped around there at the moment,  I have some nail heads to put in, and, I need to work on the wood trim a little more.  I'll get er done eventually! 

With all of the cold and freezing weather lately..yes, a broken MAIN water line..only cost a mere $1200.00 bucks....There goes my Valiversary present!
Oh well, its only money!  Here is the area right next to the chair..A cool metal desk, and some yummies.

I really do appreciate all of you ladies who have NOT deleted me from your followers list..It means A LOT to me!! 
Rhonda  (oh crap!  Guess I really am a bug!!)
