You know, I feel like every post I read or write starts with those words. We are all inspired by Pinterest. Even our original projects were inspired by Pinterest. IF PINTEREST EVER CEASES TO BE, THERE WILL BE NO NEW THINGS EVER AGAIN.
At any rate, last week was my mother's birthday. For her birthday, she wanted me to take her to a small Amish town we have about 45 minutes from us to find a thrift store she visited a couple of months ago. There was a piece of furniture that was there and she wanted to buy it. We drove to the town and found a thrift store. She said it wasn't that one. Oh, and she didn't know where it was, so let's keep driving.
We drove around Amish country for two hours. On a wild-goose chase.
After two hours I drove back to the thrift store and said, "WE'RE GOING IN, I DON'T CARE IF IT'S THE RIGHT ONE, I'M EXHAUSTED." So we went in. AND IT WAS THE RIGHT ONE.
My head exploded.
At any rate, I found an old Ball jar with a blue tint to it and fell in love. It reminded me of that pin I found and I had to buy it for about $1.
That little votive candle holder was purchased at Goodwill for a quarter, but they have them at Michael's for $0.99.
I cleaned the old jar and stuffed cotton balls in it and then filled the candle holder with Q-Tips and set it right inside the jar.
Is that not adorable! Why, it made me want to clean the rest of the bathroom counter. I mean, I didn't... but I wanted to.
LONG LIVE PINTEREST!
