Life is an adventure and there's hardly anything better than a junkin' adventure. (Okay, the visit from the new grandbaby later in the day did beat the junkin' adventure but all you grandmas will understand that....) A gorgeous day, a large empty red van, some water, diet coke, and assorted snacks, and we were off! Came home with a full red van and re-energized to face the rest of the week! Hope you all find an adventure to go on and rejuvenate your life! When you think your life sucks, just get together with friends and remember that they think their life sucks sometimes too. We just need to reboot, to find joy, to cry on someone's shoulder, to vent, and to laugh for no reason at all. There's more than one reason we like to get together.....
Bare with me in these photos.... I'm cleaning, sorting, actually JuNking in my OWN house! (And that's no lie!😬.)
Anyway, I got these 1970's light fixtures from my friends parents, we have been friends since like we were 3 years old in Sunday School. I spent many, many sleep overs at their home from kindergarten through 12th grade. PS I look more like my friends Mom than she does so it was always kind of a joke that I was the brunette daughter she never had! Of course I'm the long winded story teller- back to my photos, and no I'm not drinking the yummy Bumble Bee Red North Dakota wine, (it's a gift for my Mom). Thinking where can I put these lights or what can I do with them as they have great memories of my childhood. It came to me, lets turn them into bowl stands! And no, I'm not the first person that has had this idea, thanks to magazines and Pinterest we have seen them some 1,001 times. I'm going to quick refurbish these and show you how very SIMPLE it is. Actually took less time to make than it takes to read my story about them! I kinda have that "Oh! Look a squirrel " mind! I get side tracked way to easy...😜 most of you know this by reading when it's my turn to post. Not only sidetracked when writing, but really bad when I'm, say, cleaning! The steps are explained below
1st- Remove the globe and lightbulb if one is still intact.
