Love Rocks!

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,

it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs,

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects,

always trusts,

always hopes, always perseveres.

 Love never fails.

I Corinthians 13:4-8

Happy Monday!
*LOVE* & blessings!

Lighten up!

There's just something about gray winter days
that make me look around and want to add a little light.

 I decided to brighten an old pair of lamps I haven't used in several years.
(just in case I completely ruined them!)
I mixed together an antique white paint with a small amount of antiquing glaze,
then dry brushed the entire surface, after, I lightly rubbed several spots with a soft cloth 
before the paint mixture had dried- giving them a touch of an aged patina look.

I placed them in a "darker" spot, in hopes they would help lighten things a bit...

and I do think they helped!
How about you, do you tend to want to "lighten" things during the gray winter days too? 

Wishing you a bright-light-filled day!
love & blessings!
