In All Fairness
The one thing NOBODY told me beforeI took my job at Habitat was that I had to wait TWO WHOLE DAYS before I could buy something at the ReSTore. They date the price stickers so they know when to rotate merchandise, which means you have to make sure it's been out on the floor longer than two days. The dude that runs the store says they had to do that to make sure it is fair. So, this little collection is a compilation of a couple of days of shopping.
Even though that green bowl serving set doesn't match my set of dishes, I love the embossed roses and the color. I have it stashed for holidays, but I imagine it will make a visit to the counter with some fruit at some point soon. And check out that opalescent carnival glass bowl. I am thinking about putting the two bowls together using epoxy to make one that has a little foot to it.
Just a pretty little decoration I got a while back that I messed with a little. The crackle glass was originally clear and I painted it with some clear opalescent glass paint and then added a layer of opaque purple over top on the inside so you couldn't see through it. I added some silver leafing too so it brighted it up quite a bit. Love it now! You can see what it looked like below....
Yes, all that metal cording was a previous score...so you'll be seeing that on projects too! Just as soon as I stop hoarding it all...
And one last photo of my makeover on that little decoration. It's pretty isn't it! It's going on my new desk at work (just as soon as we get them and overhaul the office) so I'm pumped!
Happiest of Thursdays to you!
