You might already know that I do NOT have a "green thumb"!!  But I really LOVE junky planters and annuals.  About this time of year my plants trend to look a little sad :(

Yet another "simple idea"...
A while back a Facebook follower posted a picture of her chandelier on my page and asked if I had any ideas for shades.  I immediately thought of springs...and it's been in my head ever since :)

We have been busy with Vacation Bible School this week.  
Today during the lesson today I asked if anyone knew what a "Disciple" was...and one little boy said "It's when you take old stuff and make it into something new". So cute...I guess recycle does rhyme with disciple :)
I still remember my awesome weeks of VBS as a kid.  I hope these little people feel the same way when they are 40+!!

Chat soon,

The Easiest Ball Jar Solar Lights EVER...

Chipping with Charm: Ball Jar Solar Lights...http://chippingwithcharm.blogspot.com/
These are so simple and silly...I almost didn't post about them.  But then I realized that most of my ideas a like that.  And, they make me happy.  What if they make you happy too?  
I'd hate for anyone to miss out on a little "happy" :)

Meet "The Girls"...

I found a couple of cracked vases at garage sales recently.  I decided they might be finished being "useful"...but they weren't done being "pretty".

 Flipped upside down they looked a like a skirt and a couple of arms to me.  How about you?

 I'm pretty sure my inspiration for these lovely ladies came from these little sugar bowl cuties by Betsy of MY SALVAGED TREASURES.
Don't you love them?

For now they are enjoying their new home on top of the hutch in my Great Room.  They might make their way to our booth...soon :)
