hurricane hermine?

happy belated labor day peeps. i had a well rested weekend considering the fact that i didn’t paint my kitchen cabinet, which i was supposed to. on my defense, i did complete one tiny project.

hurricane glass. they are so popular as i’ve seen this everywhere in blogsville. even pottery barn & west elm have them. they are going for $20-$70. ouch!

inspired by thirty decor chick, decor chick, my backyard eden i decided to jump on the wagon and look for glass and candlesticks that will work. a visit to the thrift store and came home with more than what i’m suppose to get. can’t help it as they are only $0.50 each.

182 mantao thought i got him new toys :P176

after washing, drying and gluing them with gorilla glue(this thing is dangerous) and running around the house to find items that will fit in the glass…..here’s what i came up with.

i love how versatile they are. i can change the contents in them anytime i want and they would look different every time. speaking of hurricane glass, texas is hit by hurricane hermine. it rained whole day today and still haven’t stopped. on flood and tornado watch. hope it’s a mild one. drive safe people.

switching topic, i checked out wimberley lions market on saturday. it was a nice 40 mins drive to the hill country. this place is huge. they have more than 400+ booths. i was so excited to check out the booths like a kid on the toys aisle at target. they have everything from vintage, antique, handmade etc. it’s hard to describe how wonderful the place is, so here are some photos……010 antique phone table006 real hurricane lamps013 love this painting. the girl is so cute024 dreamy chair….no wonder it was sold so quickly050shabby chic, cottage style046
