Lampshade makeover ~ Etsy Find ~ New pics of Grandson

Hello everyone!! Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend so far ~ we've been having some wonderful warm weather here in Michigan for the past several days, and I'm loving it!! This morning I went around and picked up all my yard decorations that I had in my landscaping, and put them away for the upcoming winter, and took all the furniture and "stuff" off from the front porch and stored it away...it looks so bare now :( I've got some corn stalks from our garden that I'm going to bundle up and wrap and place them on either side of our front porch steps for some nice fall decoration.

The other day I did a makeover of a lampshade that I found at one of my local Goodwill stores a while back, and wanted to show you a couple of pics of it ~ It has a nice soft pale pink cotton fabric now on it, with pink gimp trim, and at the bottom is some Vintage fringe trim from an old chenille bedspread. The finishing touch is a new pink rose pin.




And look at these fabulous Vintage candleholders that I found while doing some searching on Etsy!! I plan to buy some of that fabulous Cottage White spray paint by Valspar that is sold at Lowe's that Miss Rebecca, over at A Gathering Place, has been talking about, and will make them look so perfectly Shabbylicious!!



Love the sparkle of these Crystals ♥♥♥



Now you know I have to show you all some new pics of my sweet Grandson, Seth!! Amber took these a week ago, when is was 3 weeks old....love this one! He's just kickin' back and "chillin", LOL :)



Awwww, isn't he just the cutest!!! Don't you just want to smother that adorable face with kisses...I know I do :) He is officially 1 month old as of yesterday, 10-08. It doesn't seem like it!



Thanks so much for stopping by today, I always love to have you visit ♥♥♥ I'm going to be spending the afternoon today watching the Nascar race, where they are at Kansas this week....go 24!!!

Until next time sweet friends!!

Dearest Brenda,

Congratulations on your new grandson! At the time he was born I was in Germany... still not back from our trip to The Netherlands for a wedding and visiting my parents. Sorry that I missed your posts.
You are smart at making things look pretty!
Love to you,

Mariette

The lampshade turned out so pretty, Brenda..very soft looking! And those candle sticks are going to be very chic when sprayed with "Rebecca;s" paint!! I bet they turn out to look so feminine and delicate....the crystals will be the crowning touch...
I can't believe how your grandson has grown in one short month!! He is adorable....just precious, and yes, I would love to hold him and give him "lots of sugar"!!
Have a happy week....Hugs, Francy
