I am a wife, mother of four, ages 17 to 2, and a Christian. I am a foodie, an extreme home enthusiast, trash salvager, and a forever seeker of the ultimate bargain! Oh, and I love shoes!!
If we are not doing the family thang, you can bet I'll be found at a junk sale or antique mall, turning my findings into new shabby chic treasures!

Thinking about Fall
Ok, so as much as i am and oh so Summer gal, I am ready to throw the towel in on this one...too many 100 degree days make Vanessa a cranky girl! :) I have embrassed the fact that Fall is just around the corner and soon enough it will be time to make and burn yummy scented candles yay! Not to mention all the fun football party foods, double yay! ;)) So, since I am thinking about this, I thought I would do a little Fall project. Tea light candle holders. Start with a 4x4 post cut into what ever size you like, mine were 5 inch cuts. Then use a drill bit to cut out a 1 1/2 inch circle ( size of a tealight) then I painted them an antique white a little sanding then glaze. I found the letters at Hobby Lobby, just stickers that I applied with a litle ModPodge. From the photo it is a little hard to see the distressing but very cute and is going to be a nice look with my fall leaves and pumpkin garland. Also, I plan on adding the letters for BLESSED to the back side so I can use this year round :). I have three more that I am going to add BOO on them...oh the possibilities.
