Thursday Favorite Things Linky Party

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week has been great.  We are driving to Pittsburgh, PA today. I used to drive this all the time but lately we have not driven and I am not sure how much I like driving with three dogs. So far they are being very good but 13 1/2 hours is long and that doesn't include stops. 
I want to see my Mom who is 94 and still going strong and my little sister. They are supposed to have cool weather so I am looking forward to that. 

Many of my features come from you my commenters. Don't forget to leave your Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you could become one of my featured commenters next week.

Fall Candle Holder from a Lamp Base

Fall Candle Holder  from a Lamp Base

A few months back, I pulled a wicker lamp out of the neighbors junk pile. The cord had been cut off but the rest of the parts where there. I keep lamp parts so I took it apart. The lamp shade was "toast" and I really didn't want it. 

The base of the lamp was wicker and in good shape, but I didn't like the color (sort of dirty blond).  Sorry, I don't have a picture of the original lamp base. I didn't think I would be using the base. I put it aside for awhile.

Then one day I found the wicker base and had an idea.  I found some brown spray paint. I got so excited that I forgot to take a before picture. While the paint was drying, I headed to A. C. Moore for a couple of items.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Happy fall ya'll!! It is the first of October!

Fall is officially here with all the pumpkins, falling leaves, cooler temps, hot cocoa by the fire and picking apples. Another thing we don't do here in Central Florida is to go apple picking since there are no groves in the area. Do you like to go apple picking?

Welcome to the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop where we enjoy linking up posts about recipes, crafts, DIY, everyday life & more every Tue at 7:00 pm EST #wwbloghop

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Sunday and the last Sunday in September. Where did this month go? The evenings are getting darker sooner, which I hate. I love to walk after dinner but soon it will be too dark to do that. Then there will be the time change, and that is even worse. 

We had a great day today. We got a lot of little things done - new lighting on the trees, built my garden beds, and did some shopping. How was your day?

I hope you enjoy checking out my features and all of the amazing posts. Have a great week ahead.
