New things for home

I decided not to let being fired of the job get to me. It is hard, but I tried to do things I love. I changed the bed, nice clean crisp cotton sheets (love clean sheets). I browsed Ebay for some nice finds and I painted my urn.

I was looking for something to put my ivy in. I saw this ceramic urn (it's new) in a store for around 10 dollars and love the shape, but I didn't like the bronze gold color. I painted the urn with Plaid antique white and than used Rub n' buff pewter for the relief parts. I am not a 100% satisfied with it and not sure it will stay this way, but for now!

This is one of my latest Ebay finds. Eight F.B. Rogers napkin rings for $9.95, two boxes of 4. Never used, as new in original boxes. I wanted to have 8 similar rings for a long time! Pity the shippingcosts are always almost twice the price of the item ($15). Fortunately I have my paypal savingbox (selling art and stuff). In Israel you can't take cash money from a paypal account, so the only way to use is, is buying things with it.

I'm sure you'll have good days and bad days with losing your job. But trying to keep a positive outlook like you are will definitely make all of your days brighter.

You've made a lovely change in the urn. Your ivy looks beautiful in it.

That's something that you can only spend Paypal money online. The good thing about that is you never have to feel guilty about shopping online. :)
