It is Remembrance Day in Australia. A day to remember and thank the men and women who serve our Commonwealth Countries. Thank you! Did you have a moment of silence at 11:00 a.m.? I know that we did.
It is also Veterans Day in America. Wow! I am proud to be an American and I want to thank the Veterans that have kept my family, my friends, my country and myself safe. I hope you were able to attend one of the many parades in your honor.
As I was saying Thank you in Australia, I was also saying Thank you in America! What great countries we live in and what great veterans we have!
Mini me has a recessed overhead light in his room. For weeks now, I have been wanting to dress it up a little. Boring isn’t it?
We are renting and a complete makeover is not an option. However, this lantern was used during a recent party and I thought it might look cute.
How did I hang it, you ask?
Hooked 3 inch lengths of wire on the inside metal hooks.
Twisted the wires together to make a “hanger”. I hung the lantern by the loop inside of it onto the twisted wire.
Such a small change can make a big difference! Did you notice the AM on his wall? Find the tutorial for that here.
I am in the process of making a really beautiful lamp shade for the recessed light in the guest room. Be sure and keep an eye out for that.
Do you have any problem lights in your home? I would love to hear about them and how you have or plan to overcome them.
