TS re-do

i am going to a halloween party next week, and i needed/wanted some dishes that were more halloweenie than what i had. so, a trip to the ts was called for........
......and i'm sorry i didn't get a total before picture as i was in a huge hurry to get this done......

i thought this had good party bones! lol ....this is the bottom and you can see how shinny it was




i primed it grey.......




here it is all done.





i also wanted a black footed cake plate. but didn't find anything at the ts that i could re-do, so, i headed over to the $ store. there i picked up a plate and candle stick, which when i got it home i discovered it was uneven and the plate tilted......... had to wait until i had another chance to head to town (48 miles) to pick up another one. as soon as i get it glued and sprayed, i'll post the re-do.




i could not help being grateful for a glorious sun this morning! every morning as soon as i get lbc on the bus we head out for our walk. it is light, but the sun is not fully up yet, and it's still kind of shadowy and cold. this morning i was walking alone and about the time i had gone about a half mile, the sun crested the tops of the mountains to the east. it was just beautiful. everything around me became radiantly gold! i turned and faced the sun and just soaked it in. with it's rising, the sun brought light, hope and warmth, and the promise of a glorious day!

what an amazing way to start my day! and to think, i almost talked myself into staying home this morning!

I loved the sun coming down the canyon on the Salmon River, and to feel the warmth of it hitting my face. Nothing like that feeling. That is a cool serving tray...I want to goto a halloween party!

I'll never complain again about driving 8 miles to get to just about everything I need including Hobby Lobby. Love all your cute projects. Mimi
