My Well-Trained Husband ...

My husband is one of those few men that actually pays attention to the crafts that I make. If he stops in at a thrift store when he's out calling, he knows the kinds of things I like and will look for them. A lot of times he doesn't even have to call me to find out if I can use something - he just knows (and he's right). If he's not sure, he never passes it up. He always calls and asks. (Aren't you envious?) :)



Anyway, he collects eagles and eagle memorabilia. When he came back from a recent thrift store excursion with these two glass bowls ($0.25 each), I wasn't very impressed. But since they were for his study, I kept my opinion to myself. And then ...



... then he came downstairs with two of the glass candlesticks I had picked up at another thrift store (something like $0.25 each or so), and I realized again what a genius I married. This was his idea, and it transformed those dishes from boring to classy.

He'd like to see if we could add some gold highlights to the glass candlesticks, so I'm trying to find that gold paint marker I had somewhere around here that I thought would stick to glass ...

The "follow" button should be at the very top of the blog, to the left. It's right next to the search box. HTH!
