Forgive the dark photos... Sunshine....on vacation...
Dave and I were thrifting a couple weeks back and spotted this candelabra?.../ hot air ballon?/...basket?/...thingy!!!!!
Brought it home...washed it up...painted it pale pink, ( big surprise!)...added some polka dot ribbon and hung a big crystal from the top...

Found some tall pale pink tapers at the Maxx...

Tossed some yarn balls in shades of white in the basket part...

Isn't that an unusual piece?...I think I need more crystals hanging from the balloon lattace...
What do you think?
If you look at it long enough...there are a lot of things you could do with it!

For now...this is where it is. Won't stay there for long though...nothing ever does!
Are you a mover and a shaker?...always moving things around?
Happy weekend!!!!, xoxo~Kathy.
Promise to take better photos when the sunshines...


  1. Hi Kathy,
    I love your ballon candelabra! What a great find and such a fun piece. I love the crystal you have on it now.
    You are like me I am always moveing things around.(It's Fun")
    Take care and enjoy your weekend,
    Hugs, Elizabeth

  2. LoL, is this Ozarks farm chick a mover or a shaker. Do ducks quack? Heeeeheehe! Yep, I love to shake thing up 'round the old Ponderosa. Never a dull moment around here. I'm so glad I popped in.

    Ya'll have a fabulously blessed weekend from the hills and hollers of Missouri!

  3. Just love your balloon thingy it looks great painted pink. The crystals look terrific too, I think tiny roses and pink and white ribbons hanging from each candle base would look great too, and maybe larger pink and white faux roses in the base also. Nice job!

  4. What a fabulous find. I just love it and painted pink is just perfect. Yes, I move things all the time. That's my play time. Good for the sanity. lol Hugs, Marty

  5. What an awesome piece, Kathy! How pretty it look painted pink!! You'll have a fun time moving it around. I do it all the time!


  6. That sure is a multi-tasking little "thingy". I bet it will come in handy in almost any room. I just adore that little chest that it is sitting on!

    I'm so glad I took time out to visit you today. I wanted to get up to speed on your husband's treatment. Sounds like he is in very good hands.

    You have the right attitude... those cancer cells better run for the hills!

    See ya soon ;)

  7. What an interesting piece, Kathy. Very pretty.

    Not sure why you didn't get the 2 emails I've sent to the address you gave. Well, guess they are floating in cyber right now.
    xo bj

  8. Oh wow, that's so pretty! I love the color!

  9. That fits into your decor just perfect! Love what you did with it!

  10. It is different..quite enchanting:)

  11. Hi Kathy,
    I really like this candelabra you found and what you have done with it. Yes I am a mover and shaker, nothing stays in the same place for long around my place either.
    I also read some of your other post and find that you are gifted and talented with your hands, I have so much admiration for women who are so gifted, and I love to see them use the talents that God has given them.
    I want you to know that I will be praying for your husband and your family. In reading your blog, I see that you have a very strong faith.
    Thank you for visiting me and for leaving such a sweet comment.

  12. I love the balloon chandelier, it's so unusual. I like the pink, makes it so pretty. I will say a prayer for your Hubby and I hope all goes well.

  13. No, 'fraid not so much... We like what we like and tend to place a thing somewhere and then it just stays. That's probably why I don't do much decorating stuff on my Blog! I love looking at yours though!

  14. Oh definitely more crystals! What a cute piece! Unique and you can do so much with it:>) Very cool!

  15. THAT makes a vacation fun -- finding treasures that bring back wonderful memories!!! adore the yarn in the basket too.

  16. Kathy,
    What a wonderful find! I think the yarn balls are such a creative touch. More crystals, definately! I recieved a high end "To The Trade" catalog this week, and they have a balloon light fixture I was admiring, but the price was out of this world. I really like your new goodie.

  17. Oh how pretty -- can't wait to see all the ways you transform this chandelier!

  18. Now that is just fabulously fun! I love it!
