You have all been hearing me talk about our incredible neighbors.
Well' here I go again!
These two lamps were in my "yard Sale"
a couple of months ago.
No, they didn't look like this . . .
They looked like this,see them on the right.
Look at how shabby they looked,
and not in a good way:)
Well, my friend Shirley has the golden touch
when it comes to make-overs.
She didn't just paint the lamps,
she also took the shades down to bare wire
and recovered them.
Look at them, aren't they just adorable.
She did them for her granddaughter's new apartment,
and let her pick out the colors and fabric.
She is going to teach me how to cover lamp shades.
That is, as soon as I have a little more time.
Probably that will be sometime after frost.
I'll be sure and do a tutorial:)
Shirley and her hubby are so talented.
Do you remember the birdhouse that he made us.
Well, this is what he made and gave me for my birthday.
With gifts like these I just might start
adding another year to my age , twice a year, LOL.
It looks perfect on my country porch.
If I could make a wish and have it come true,
I would wish that all of you had neighbors like ours.
That is not because of their amazing talents,
or their awesome generosity.
It is because they are an honest and honorable couple.
They are the kind of neighbors that you would not be afraid to bare your soul,
and ask for prayer . . .
knowing that they would pray for you and never talk about your shortcomings.
We have known them for years
never thinking that we would ever be neighbors.
It's it marvelous how God plans our lifes . . .
Here's wishing you all and wonderful day:)
Your blogging sister,
