Hi everyone, hope you had fun with the fireworks.  For me,  I DON’T like the whole thing.   Too loud and I hide right next to my Momma and Peanut.

As you can see, I’m in one of my favorite spots.  Peanut says I’m boring but I love being right here to catch-all the action that’s going on, I’m VERY nosey.

I’m not going to talk much like Peanut, she goes on and on, see ya!

I had these lamps in our old living room, the plan was to change in our bedroom every once in a while.  Let’s be honest, I am never going to do that, EVER.

These bases were  too pretty to get rid of, so what to do???  Make them into candle holders for our dining room table.

I’m sorry for the picture, the sun was streaming in my  office.  You may notice some views of the beginnings of my office.  We are starting to get this project going and it is BIG. 

Back to the holders, I used many layers of paint.  I didn’t what the look of solid colors.  I chose to a wash of colors in ASCP.  I used, Louis, French Linen, Chateau Grey and Old Ochre.

On these little accents, I used silver gilding wax to make them pop a bit after I did my waxing.

Silver gilding wax was also added to these leaves a bit too.

Close up of the centerpiece.  I kept this simple with an artichoke and a pretty glass bottle I picked up at Michael’s last year with a few sprigs of lavender.  These pretty elements of t he season were added to my favorite cloche.

Beneath you can notice my antique mirror from Ballard.  I have had this for many years.  This room gets pretty sunlight in the early afternoon.
