Welcome To The 32nd Masterpiece Monday!

Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to say thank you for always leaving me
such kind and encouraging comments, I read and appreciate
each and every one! 

This week I'm going to reveal yet another portion of my new craft room.
But also, first, I'm including my ceiling as well!

I've been racking my brains for weeks, to come up 
with a lamp shade solution for my ceiling fan.
I was coming up empty.
Then the other day whilst puttering around in my craft room, I got me an idea!
I've seen people use blue glass jars as chandeliers, so why not for ceiling fans?
Hoping upon hope that it would fit. And it did fit, like a glove, it was so easy! And free!
Yay!!!!!!!! I'm so happy with it!!!!!
And now, onto my next Summer painting project. It's a small one, but I've held onto this little cabinet for a long time. It's been sitting in the garage and now it's moment has arrived.
I painted and lightly sanded the edges. After hanging it, I added some vinyl lettering on the wall above it from the dollar store. The words are from my favorite scripture~1Corinthians 13:1-13.
The antique sewing machine and stained glass lamp have also been living out in the garage.
The dress form mannequin I found at the swap-meet for 5 dollars and the wire base was a curb find. (Am I the only person who says "swap-meet? I've never read it anywhere else!)

The package of vintage mounting corners were my grandma's and
the vintage spectacles I found for a dollar at a yard sale recently.

I make and also collect jewelry from thrift stores, yard sales, etc.


I'm really looking forward to viewing all of this weeks masterpieces you've created!

Have Fun,

I know that Californians use the term "Swap Meet". Sometimes in NY people use it also. :-D

I am loving that mannequin..what's her name? You could have a NAME MY MANNEQUIN party. :))
And...she could use a sexy little mini skirt, too. Maybe something in leather..and a matching little black leather bra..all her jewelry looks fantastic..Love it.
O, I came over to link but....where is it?

Hi Mary,
I love how that cabinet turned out. The blue ball jars look great on it and also on the ceiling fan! Great idea.
You have an awesome antique sewing machine, I'm glad it found a place in your house.
I lived in California for a few years and they had swap meets....the town I lived in had one every Sunday.
I'm linking up a project today. Thanks for hosting.

Your are very creative using the ball jar for a light fixture. I love it, very vintage chandy!. Loving the mannequin, she looks very stylish dressed with all her jewelry. I've been looking for one, when I find one way more that I am willing to pay. Great post.
Thanks for hosting........

Your craft room is very nice and the jar on the fan was genius. Covering the new bulb perfectly. Thanks for having us over!

I also love your mannequin especially her wire shirt.
I know in Whatcheer Iowa they say swap meet and some of my older friends use to use that phrase.

I will swap you something forsomething I have . LOL
Maybe we should swap out things when we are tired of them? I,m ready

your painted shelf really is pretty with the blue jars

Oh I forgot to tell you I love the idea of putting the blue jar on your fan . That was so smart

I love this room!

Mary,
That was a very clever idea, what's better then that to hide one of "those" light bulbs! As the commenters above said, coming from S.Cal, that's the only place I've ever heard that term.
Swap meet, flea market, there is nothing better!
Love your room!

Oooh, wow! I love your new ceiling fan lamp. That's definitely a very creative way to reuse an old jar. Way to go on your new craft room!
