It’s been a beautiful week here in Virginia.  After what seemed liked an eternity of days of clouds, if was nice to see the sun again.

I love a week when I have fun projects to share and this was one of those weeks.

I made over a $3 milk glass lamp that I found at the thrift shop.  I’m loving the combination of gold and white.  This post is part of a thrift challenge that benefits sheltered animals.  There are 14 more thrift shop makeover to enjoy when you click over.

I’m participating in a 31 Days of Christmas Ornament Blog Hop and this week was my day to share an ornament.  I used vintage buttons to craft this cute snowman.  You’ll find links to every ornament shared in October at the bottom of my post.  I have found some great ideas!

I belong to a power tool challenge team where a group of bloggers makes projects to go along with a monthly theme.  This month’s theme was frightful and my pierced wood candle holders add fun light patterns to my frightfully decorated table.
