Sometimes I get the itch to change something in my house, and once it starts I'm on a mission to make things happen. ; )
Jason and I bought two lamps like this ten years ago when we moved into our first house, and it was time for them to go. They were driving me crazy, so I began my search this summer. I had an idea of what I wanted but couldn't find the right shade with the right base.
Yes, that is Woody and Jesse in the glass lantern. Z finds the funniest places for his toys!
I finally found two I liked at Kirklands! I thought the shade looked kind of unproportional with the base, but Shannon convinced me that's how it was supposed to be. ; ) I love how they look!
I also had a picture and our "Rowe family rules" I wanted to frame, so Jason's dad made me two large wooden frames.
I used paint we already had for our house. One red and one a grayish tan.
I used three coats of red paint and two coats for the tan.
It was fun painting them, but of course I had the easy part!
The last thing I wanted to share is a picture of Reese's feet someone sent us. She called it "counted crosstitch." Isn't it amazing? It's difficult to tell from this picture, but the work she put into this is unbelievable. GOD uses people in the mightiest of ways!
Zach has his first flag football practice tonight. Wish us luck. ; )
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with goodness...
