Spring time = treasure hunting!!!!

Spring time = treasure hunting!!!!  with the winter (hopefully behind us) I went treasure hunting this weekend and found this bunch of farming hooks, they are about 6 inches tall.  Not really sure of what their original purpose was, the person who I got them from said they were for the back of tractors to hook machinery on. I fell in love with the shape and  the pitted surface.  My mind has been spinning with all sorts of things to do with them, a chandelier, hanging pendants, a pair of sconces.  Not sure what they will end up to be, what ever they become, I will post so you can see them.

Happy Spring,

Susan

 

 

 

Here in the Hudson Valley of New York State, we have been very luck this year with a mild winter.

Shandell’s new home

Shandell's new home

Murphy’s Law “Everything takes longer than it takes.”  Shandell’s arrived in it’s new home in July.  The unpacking of 100′s of lamps, parts, papers, setting up and painting is finally done (still have some more to do). In my mind I thought I would be done sooner, but later is just as good.  Just in time for the fall and all of the inside things that need to be done.

 

 

 

Look around and see your lighting needs for the season,  a new shade to brighten a room, that lamp that has needed to be rewired.  Chandelier or sconce shades to update your existing fixture.

Shandell’s is available by appointment or chance. I will also travel to you, just give a call or email me thingsthatmakeyousmile at gmail dot com.

Grow It Your Self

One of my daily reads, A Way To Garden did a story on WPA posters.  The graphics alone make you want to plant your own garden.  Well this year I was unable to plant a garden (but have big plans for next year).

The garden I have been growing has been Shandell’s, rearranging and planting new seeds in all different area’s.  In the next few weeks I will be adding a great new online store and my website get updated with lots to make you smile.

Enjoy the rest of your summer, see you in September.
