I found these little beauties for........................$1.99 each. Can you believe that? For less than $20. I have a new set of five silk shades with glass beads dangling from them. I plan on adding some silk ribbon to the top and bottom of each shade when they arrive. I am also going to paint the chandelier in a country pale blue. Naturally I'll post before and after pictures when the project is finished.
I'm even more excited about this next find. I am redecorating our master bedroom to soft blue and chocolate colors and have been doing some shopping around for accessories. I really really want to find a vanity and mirror for myself but so far no luck. Next stop for those items is the thrift store and goodwill. In the meantime however as I said, I've been looking for some pretty blue and chocolate accessories. While I was looking on Ebay to find the chandelier shades I kept shopping. I love window shopping on Ebay as much as actually ordering/bidding from there. I know that's weird, most people don't like to window shop without money, but it takes me away from everyday life. Geez, get back on the subject ME. Another few things I've been looking for is frugal/cheap apothecary jars. While I was perusing what Ebay had to offer on those I ran across this gorgeous blue/gold one. It instantly took my breath away. I fell in love at first sight. I placed it in my watch category and was hoping, and doing some praying as well, that I could win this beauty. She's 11 1/2 inches tall and just perfect! Her starting bid was only $9.99 for her. I watched it for a few days and then finally placed my bid a few hours before it was over. I just new I would have to fight for her and figured in all honesty she would never be mine. I have my limits for spending and figured someone would outbid me quickly for it. Not one other single person placed a bid but me. I got her for the minimum bid of $9.99. WOO HOO!!!! Isn't she just gorgeous. I have no idea what I will use her for, if anything at all, other than simply to look at! She's going to be beautiful sitting on my soon to find vanity table.
