Don't you just love this three-tier metal stand? The base is cast iron so it's real solid. Thanks Doris, I love it!
You see, word is getting out that I love cast-offs, rejects, leftovers. So my friends Doris and Shannon bring their Goodwill-bound discards to work and I sorta have first dibs... much to my husband's chagrin.
Then Saturday I hit a few yard sales and find an unopened package of paper lanterns that you insert over twinkle lights. (for 25 cents) So I put them all together and displayed them here. How sweet are these!
I also had Randy hang another chandelier light that I picked up several years ago for a couple dollars. I was relieved when he hooked it up and it actually worked. Whew.
I was then anxious to find six shades to give the patio that romantic, dreamy effect. So I literally uncovered six different shades that I had thrifted over the years (for no more than a quarter each) and was actually quite pleased with the look.
Very eclectic. Very charming.
Very me. Very happy.
