New Goodies

Hello everyone! 

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  I certainly enjoyed catching up on my sleep this weekend.  It was nice to not have an agenda of any kind.

  I wanted to show you a couple of new items that just arrived.  I ordered them from my favorite online stores, Wuslu and Antique Farmhouse.  They should thank me for all the free advertising I'm giving them!  Ha!

If you're a follower of Miss Mustard Seed's blog, then you know how she has joined efforts with Wuslu in picking out a favorite item to promote each month. This was one of those items.


It's this really unique looking candle holder !  I actually spotted it before I saw it featured on her blog and knew I just had to have it. 


You can see that I placed it on my mantel.  Hope you're not tired of seeing pictures of it.


 I love the vintage look of it.  It is made of iron and glass. 

And, remember the pillow that I ordered from Antique Farmhouse?  Well, it arrived the same day too. 


I'm very pleased with it.  It now sits in the little side chair in the family room. 

Today, Wuslu had a fantastic deal on a light fixture that I had been thinking about for my kitchen.  It was so affordable that I just had to grab it!  It may still be available, if you're interested too.


Isn't it great?  It is a barn style pendant light coated in black chalkboard paint!  I don't know if I'll actually write on it, but I could if I wanted to.  Ha! I'll probably put my old chandelier in my master bathroom.  I'll remove the shades and spray paint it to match my other light fixtures in there.

Well, that's my "show and tell" for today!  Now, it's time to get ready for another week.  I've got to take my 18 yr old to the dentist tomorrow morning for some fillings.  Not a good way to start off the week. 

Thanks for stopping by!

That pendant is way cute -- for sure write something fun on it. I want that candle holder and pillow too. I was hunting for a pillow like that this weekend. Now I know where to find one. Thanks!

I have the same candle holder. I have carried it around from room to room and it ended up in the sun room on the t.v. cabinet for now. Wish I had gotten two for the mantel. I looked at the light today. I would love a light hanging over the sink in the kitchen, but will wait since I have to slowly pay back you know who for the paint job that was just done in the MB. I love it.

That candle holder is so neat. I saw it on Wuslu and thought so then...and the pillow. How much fun to find things online that are so cute.I haven't had any luck shopping lately. Guess I'm looking for things that are too specific. Oh, well.
Hope you have a great week.

That candle sconce is great! I didn't realize it had glass in the panel there until you shot it so it was visible. That is great!

Andrea said...

great finds! I'm often jealous of these great sites you can order from....very few will ship to Canada, or if they do, they charge a massive amount for duty and shipping =(

Dorie said...
