One Day Delay

Due to the Halloween craziness and some unruly lamp making I am granting myself the liberty of  having one more day for  my family room reveal.  Everything is completely done except for my lamps. Oh the lamps.  My first round in lamp making failed miserably and the second round was scrapped due to a mistake on my part (which I was very unhappy about since I rather liked the second ones).  I will be searching for new "lamps" tomorrow and am determined to find something.  If nothing comes up better than the second round, I may have to try and strip paint to salvage them.

Yesterday was a great day as far as getting things done.

Blood Candles and a Freaky-Fast Tablescape

The next day when the search still produced no results she surprised me by buying some white candles and a red one to do blood candles!
