And finally, a project that I completed last week but never had the chance to post.
I was at the Goodwill store and found this lovely obelisk plant stand for $5!! Very cute but definitely needed a makeover.
So here is the completed stand holding a few of my favorite things...

A cute little cherub that I bought at an antique store about 5 years ago...
I have a neat little story about that antique store. Before my husband and I got married, I lived with three roommates in this really cool old house. The house was built in the 1700's and had served many uses throughout the years. It was at one time a tavern, a hotel and I believe a post office too. Anyway, I moved out when I got married and then several years later, my mom and I were antiquing in that same town. We stopped by "my old house" to see if any of my roommates still lived there. I had been out of touch with them for a couple of years and was going to surprise them with a visit. However, when I got there, we discovered that the house had been sold to new owners who turned it into an antique store! Of course we had to go in! It was kind of neat to walk into my old room and see all of the pretty things in there and the kitchen where I used to make so many meals was all full of candles and cute handmade soaps! One day if I ever make it back there, I'll have to take some pictures. I found that cute cherub on a shelf that was tucked into an alcove at the top of the stairs(where I used to store my off season clothing - LOL)
And here is a little heart shaped pillow that I made
Have a wonderful Monday and stay dry if it's raining where you are!!
