Thankful for Finials and SO MUCH MORE...

I have SO MANY things for which I am, family, friends, and of course that includes you!

This past week I was blessed by a friend I've never met in person. I have followed her blog for a while - she does the most amazing furniture revamps, repairs, re-makes - and this woman is NOT afraid of power tools like me. So of course, I follow along, amazed, and glad I still have all my digits. 

Anyway, Kim saw my first post about these finials I had fashioned out of odds and ends.  I mentioned I needed a final finial to finalize the lamp finial and finish it off. 
(Say that three times fast!)

Not only is she a visionary, and fearless, she's kind and generous. I only WISH Texas were a wee bit closer to Pennsylvania so we could hang out. She emailed me and told me she had a finial that might work...and she'd be happy to send it to me.

Who is this woman? KIM of REPOSHTURE STUDIO.

The first photo above is how it looked when it arrived - I almost couldn't touch it, the patina was lovely. case you haven't noticed since I've been absent lately...I still paint things white.

Here's the finalized finial, with a sloppy coat of white on it:

Fabulous! And it could not have fit any better. 

Thank you, Kim. Thank you, kind bloggers who befriend strangers like me. Thank you, God, for all my blessings, and especially for the ones for which I forget to say, "Thank You."

That said, I'd like to ask you all for a favor...prayers for my sweet Dad. He's in the hospital now with double pneumonia. I have a cold, and have not been able to visit. Needless to say, our Thanksgiving plans look different than they did a week ago. We are playing it by ear...

Many blessings!

Word for the Day:
Colossians 3:15
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
