OMGosh I am wore out I have been washing windows inside and out. I do this right before cold weather every year ( well maybe not every year)  so I can see the beautiful snow fall while setting in my home office on the computer reading blogs.
I am so happy however my back sure hurts not that you want to know that. A friend said hire someone to clean all your windows,sorry don't have the money for such a thing I need to save my money for traveling around like Savannah Georgia and New York City LOL.

I was outside taking pictures of a few things thinking about putting in my etsy shop.I had glitter in these vintage milk glass shakers so emptied the glitter in other shakers I have in the studio.


                                                         While I was outside I also cut down my beautiful elephant ears its suppose to be down in the 30's this week and not sure I wanted to deal with it after the nights I get home from work.This is a drawer pull got it's  last coat of white  paint on it.Remember it was silver once.


Then from white paint to black paint. I painted these little childs white high top shoes Black. I wasn't through with them I  had to sprinkle some glitter on them while I was emptying the shaker LOL don't think I'm crazy LOL just experimenting I guess . It dried very well then I cut up an old black and white ribbon for ties for the little shoes. I left the soles natural they even have a little old dirt on the bottoms .

I wanted to add little bells on the ties however not sure where they are in the studio so I found these hearts in a box of belt buckles so used them .

I gotta go I still have a list of things to get done on my day off today.
Thanks for reading my blog and enjoying it enough to leave comments I don't say that enough.
You know this is my entertainment ? 

Linky parties 


  1. Sounds like you got a lot done and very accomplished. Love the shakers and those high tops are too cute painted black. Love the heart shaped buckles you added.
    Wishing you a great last of October week.

  2. Hi Janice,
    I always enjoy reading your blogs and seeing what you're up to. You always make me smile with your cute narration!
    Take care,

  3. That is what I was going to do today, too....wash windows. However, it was just too too too windy to do it today.

    I love your handle and those little black painted shoes with the glitter are darling- xo Diana

  4. Kudos to you for washing all those windows! I complain a lot about our windows being dirty but I've never cleaned them! (Well, I've done the inside but not the outside where it really gets dirty!) Hope you enjoyed the rest of your day off!

  5. I love how the little shoes came out, precious! I hope your back gets better soon. Try to get some rest.

  6. I know what you mean, your so funny. I have a small home and I split the window cleaning, that helps. I'm sure they're beautiful now, ready for winter. Loving the little shakers and the black baby shoes are just precious. You're going to love Savannah.

  7. Those shoes are adorable! I love glitter.

  8. What's going on? We both have shoes on the brain! LOL
    I love yours, those buckles are just perfect!
    Big hugs,

  9. You may have started a trend with those shoes. Love what you did with them. I have some shoes I may do that too! Thanks for the idea.

  10. I love the salt shakers. Milk glass is my favorite!

  11. Great finds! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

  12. Nothing like sparkling clean windows! I use to clean my own in our previous home, but here they are just too high and I (scardey cat) just can't do that! I found a guy that does it for a dollar a window and it's worth every penny. lol! Love the little black shoes. I have been keeping my eye out for some black patent leather ones. The milk glass shakers are so cute! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  13. Such pretty little things! You've also reminded me that I need to get my windows clean, as well. Do you have any free time ;)

  14. Thanks for sharing with us great information
