Be Still not just my beating BUT racing heart !!!!!!!

O.k. I'm sneakin' in a quick post shhhh.... hubs is in the bathroom with a wood working magazine so he should be a bit hehehe...
We're supposed to be finishing up paintin' the walls in the living room. But I can't wait till later to show ya'll somethin'.
We made a quick trip into town to do a few quick errands. He needed a usb keyboard to fix his Mom's computer so we stopped by Goodwill to look for one. Jackpot he found one for $1.99. Well today was also a "Jackpot" for me too !!!! We were walking past the lamps section and I was saying to the Hubs how you gals found the most awesome chandeliers and redid 'em. I glanced over and Ohhhhh what to my wondering eyes did I see ???? Yahooooooo
be still my "RACING" heart and shaky hands to boot lol. I said Honey looooooook really loudly. A couple of people turned around to see what the commotion was all about lol. Hubs says shhhhh... Well ya'll know how it is when ya' find a deal or somethin' your lil ol' pea pickin' heart desires ! It's hard ta' shhhhhhh..... Darn It
Well before I show ya pics I gotta shout out a thank you to Janene over at Primitive Lifestyle (click on her blog name to see her chandelier) she is the Queen of redo's and the reason I look at things with a different eye at the TS's..... And then Lisa at
 Prims From Above ( <~~ link to check out her chandelier redo) and also Mary from Gettysburg Homestead ( <~~link for her chandelier redo too ) Thanks girlies for your inspiration !

O.k. now the pics.....

Sorry for the blurry pic...I was in a hurry lol
It was only $3.99 !!!! Yipppeeeee

The bulb holders are really rusty....But I like 'em so probably not gonna redo them. What do ya'll think ? Leave 'em or ????

See that wall back there ? That's the one I'm supposed to be removing stuff from....not bloggin' shhhhhh.....
I found some more really good stuff I will share later. Maybe after I get the L.R. repainted and everything rehung. Maybe I'll post pics of my L.R. too =0) Ohhhhh shoot I wasn't listening for the flush of the potty !!!! Busted !!!! Drats......."o.k. Honey yes I know I was sposed ta' be taking stuff down off the wall"..... "Yes....Yes.... I'm gettin' up. Lemme' tell by Prim Friends bye" ;0)
Hope your weekend is off to a GREAT start ya'll
Till Next ( "I'm coming Honey 1 sec." ) Time Ya'll
Prim Huggs n Blessins

Janene said...

Be still my heart! You are the winner of finding the chandelier at the best possible price! It is amazing...and cheap to boot!
And you said my name in your post? I am so flattered...Thank you!
I glad to have inspired you. But I do have one question for you...Do you have to drag your hubby into the GW store, or does he enjoy going?
Have a great weekend!

Lynn @ Painting Thyme Needfuls said...

OMG you are funny .....doe hubby read your blog????? Great it!

Angie Berry said...

TJ, you crack me up!! How funny!! As I was reading along, I kept asking "Did she find a chandelier??" Haha! And you did at an awesome price!! Way to go girl! Yes, I have been inspired by those prim girls to be looking for one too. You just beat me to it! I like the candle sleeves that look like they have candle drippings on them, but if I had yours.. I would be leaving it like it is! I love the rusty look. Well, you better get to work and we'll catch up with ya next time.

Congratulations on your wonderful find!

Holly Hills Primitives said...

Glad you found some great thrift store finds! That chandalier will look awesome when it's done - and I kinda like the rusty part too. Yup, we have a 4 year old Boxer named Rosie and she is my bestest bud! Don't know what I'd do without her either. What do you have? Have a great day, Dawn
