I have been working on some of my crafts that I plan to put in my Etsy Store.

These are my Colonial Style candle holders in shabby chic colors. I will also have Fall/Prim color ones as well as Christmas colors.

I'm not the best at taking pictures and I'm still trying to get uses to the new camera.
I started with these three colors to get some feed back on how people like them. I will be selling them as singles as well as pairs.

I have the purple ones on my coffee table right now, but will soon be putting up my Fall decorations.

They use the small colonial candles that have the little part that goes in the candle cup. I think they stand up better using these kind of candles. They are 9inch from top to bottom and 5 inch across the base.

The glass shade comes off for easy cleaning.

I plan to up load more pictures as the projects get finish. If there is any color that you like or have in your house that you are interested in get let me know.
They are $8.00 for one or $14.00 for a pair. Keep looking for more items and the opening of my Etsy Store Hummingbirdsnbriars
Until we meet again ~~smiles~~

A very dear lady Debbie at My Cozy Cottage World http://cozycottageblogspot.blogspot.com/ has tagged me for seven random things about me.

The rules are to list seven random and/or strange things about yourself and then tag four more people.

1. In 2002 at my high school reunion, everyone said that they know who I was because I looked just the same. So does that mean that at 18 I looked 43 or that at 43 I looked 18. hummmm!!

2.I love to read. I can't get enough books. I always have one with me, even at work so that I can read at my lunch break.

3.I'm a military brat who has lived in many, many places but I call Jacksonville/Camp Lejeune N.C. my home town.

4. I told everyone that I would never marry a Marine because they were always gone. But when I saw my DH for the first time it was love/lust at first site. hehehe

5. I was not the girl that my DH's family wanted him to marry (they had someone all picked out for him) but after 30 years, I think he is going to keep me.

6. Fall is my favorite season. My family and I love to decorate for this season as well as for Halloween. The leaves and the cool nights are the best.

7. I would love to move to Scotland to live. This has always been a dream for me. But DH says it would have to be after we retire.
Here are the four ladies I tagged:
Linda at Behind My Red Door http://behindmyreddoor.blogspot.com/
Lolly at Lolly's Nest Egg http://lollysnestegg.blogspot.com/
Celetina Marie at La Rea Rose http://larearose.blogspot.com/
Shay at Olde Colonial Peddler http://oldecolonialpeddler.blogspot.com/
So until we meet again ~~smiles~~
