Repurpose Upcycle Restyle Vintage Collectibles

Repurpose Upcycle Restyle and Vintage Collectibles

Welcome to LilacsNDreams! I have to deeply apologize many many times to ALL of you! I have gotten really behind with everything, and I feel just horrid about it! I have this wonderful crud that has been going around. Seen doctor, got some antibiotics, and it is still slightly hanging on. The biggest thing is the ears being plugged listening to the ringing, myself talking, and it’s like I’m plugging my ears when I’m not.

 This past weekend I was feeling good enough to sit down, and do some crafting, listing on Etsy, pictures, etc. Then, I had another issue happen. It was sooo hot out, got humid, and our A/C unit decided to quit working. Got home late Saturday afternoon with our granddaughter who is staying a month with us, and it felt kind of sticky in the house. Dog was panting, and it felt stuffy. I looked at the thermostat, it was set on 70, but it said it was 80 in the house. Walked around to different vents to feel the air...semi cool. Not enough to cool the house. So, we roughed it out till Monday, and was able to get our A/C guy in. I think the heat exhausted us that once it cooled, we all dozed off with relaxation.

Needless to say the weekend was wasted because with the humidity I was not able to work as plan. Granddaughter wanted to help, and was disappointed.

In a couple weeks we have a family reunion scheduled that I have to take care of, and organize with another family member. I “don’t work” so I’m usually the one who does most of everything. So, my schedule is off with everything.

Again, I greatly apologize for not being here like I should be. It truly has bothered me. With a little luck I hope to be back with a schedule again very very soon.

Below I am sharing a few pictures of some items that I had Repurposed and upcycled over time. Glass bowls, glass dome, candle holders, glue, paint, mod podge, and some creative fun pieces were done. I really enjoy this, and am working my way back into repurposing, crafting, upcycling, vintage collectibles, etc. I am anxious to share ideas with you, and some of my completions too. Hope you’ll
stop by, and have a look as time moves along for us. Hopefully I figure out a computer soon
too....still a working progress for me. I really need to work this as it would make things so much easier for me to do too.

 Wooden candlestick holder with the cloche and plate added. Painted black, mod podged some old music paper around the middle, and flat serving area. Touched underneath the round plate a simple plain white ribbon. So many uses!

This was a decorative glass bowl upcycled with a square glass decorative candle holder. This bowl Stand was so fun, and adorable when the pieces were united.

This glass cloche dome was revised just a little bit. I painted the wooden base a adorqble pink slipper color. I loosely added a vintage doily to decorate it a little bit too. Many possibilities for decorating, and using this too.

Lastly, this is another decorative glass bowl that was united with a decorative glass holder that had a
flared footed base. Loved it, and was hard to let go. I don’t have the room to keep everything unfortunately.

Thanks so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams! Wishing everyone a safe, and Happy 4th of July Holiday. Enjoy, and be safe everyone! Hope to see y’all again soon.
