My Little Chandelier, ATC and HQ Ready

These are my tags that I made for the monthly swap..they already have them so I can show you. I'm waiting for the ones they made. The theme: Coffee or Tea.


This is my $12.00 Chandelier...it's about 12" tall and it has a tag that says "Made In Spain"



These are my crystals that I have for it. Some came with it and some I have been collecting. Question for you gals...should I paint the chandelier or leave it or add some of that rub & buff??




My space is already for the sale this Thursday-Sunday....






Tea cart and tea cups and things for a tea party.







I'm selling the aqua canister set and LOTS of STUFF!! Sure hope the weather is good. It rained most of today and had a tornado watch not far from the house....






More treasures to sell...magazines, books and more...oh my!!! Next month is FALL and I can hardly wait to decorate my space! You all know that Fall is my favorite season :)
Tomorrow is garage sales with Kailee. She is sure getting the hang of sales and we will probably go to the thrift store. She really likes the thrift store. I heard they are going to have a Salvation Army thrift store not far from my house...can't wait for that to open.
I've had lunch out 2 days in a row. Monday at the General Store where they make fresh Popovers served with honey butter....YUMMY and yesterday lunch at Bubba Gumps with another Grandma and Grand daughter after we had fun at the Mall of America...and they have the BEST Shrimp Cobb salad with raspberry dressing..more YUMMY...
Happy blogging!!
Warmly,
Deb :)

Don't forget to give me your ideas for the chandelier :) Thanks !!!

All your goodies are so sweet! I love the canisters! Not sure about the chandelier, leaning toward painting it! Have a blessed day and happy shopping:)

Judy said...

I think I'd leave it and see if it goes if not then paint it. I sure wish you were here to help me with my booth. I'm learning fast though. We are having a labor day sale so will stock up and then do the fall after that is over. Lunches sound awesome. I've been working and eating leftovers.

I think I would clean it up and try it like that for awhile. Although it would look good painted too. Geez I am no help.
Take care ~Sue

I think if you painted the chandelier it would look good! What color? White? White would look great!

Hi Deb!! I love that train case and bench from your last post. Great finds!!! I think the chandelier looks really nice how it is and will look even better when you attach the crystals.

I've got to walk a lot faster! I want to get there and shop your booth before anyone else! I love all your stuff. I bet you have the best booth there. I have always wanted one of those tea carts! I love the cannister set, that red wire basket, the button cards, the bottles, oh I could go on and on! So nicely arranged too! Twyla

Hi Sis ~ You have so many cool things for sale...I love that aqua canister set..I bet that goes fast!

I would paint the chandelier...but it's gorgeous no matter what you do!

I can't wait to decorate the house for fall..I'm thinking since it's supposed to be cool this weekend, I might venture downstairs and drag up the boxes...hate that job!

Have a great weekend!

Deb, I am so "coveting" that chandelier!! WOULD love to have it!! This is what I would do with it...I would clean it up, dilute some white latex paint, paint it all over the gold, then take a cloth and REMOVE most of the white paint but still leave alot of it in the all the deep crevices. That should make it look more like it was WHITE with the gold showing thru. Then attach all those beautiful crystals--I have one over my DR table that I did that way, and it turned out really pretty! I think yours will too!

Now, if you have a color scheme in the room that you are going to use it...you could go with that main color instead of the white.

If I had it, I would paint it AQUA..OMG...that would be too cute!!

Hope this helps...

Oh girl...I had such fun enlarging your pictures and looking in your booth! Those are such great treasures you have in there...it must be such fun having a booth and decorating it. The only time I get to do that is when we take things to the flea market. Everything looks so pretty...the way you have arranged it all...I bet you'll sell a bunch! I hope you do!
Big Hugs,
Queenie
P.S. I love Jackson Brown and the pumpkins in your new header! It's so cute! Lucky you....having the wonderful fall weather!
