a HAPPINESS JAR.The description of the Happiness pot said that traditionally newlyweds in China were given two of these pots with the Chinese ideogram for Happiness. What a wonderful gift! I bought it for myself and it makes me happy every time I walk by it!
Here are some more of my new purchases that are making me happy as well! First is a cross bottle made by my friend Artie Vanderpool. He makes them himself with old chandelier crystals and old bottles, and then he solders everything together. One is more beautiful than the other. This is the first one that I purchased, hopefully I will add to my collection in the future. The bottles sell out very quick. You can check out his wares on his Facebook page – CrossBottleGuy.
There are other treasures that have been added to my home lately and they all make me happy as well. I guess I'm into blue and white right now. Here is one of two blue and white garden stools I recently purchased that will be used a side tables for two chairs.
The stool is sitting on a new (well actually it's old) kilim rug that will sit on the seagrass rug, that I have been waiting forever to get! I love all the color it brings to the room.
Doesn't look much different that the end of last week, but if you look close you can see new wiring. The electrician has worked for almost a whole week rewiring and getting rid of the low voltage wiring that was in the house. And in the window is the permit that shows the electrical work passed inspection. Next week dry wall and new heating elements!
