the world it won't wait for you/its got its own things to do

I found these brand new wipe containers at the thrift store for 50 cents and just removed the mickey mouse sticker and replaced with a brown kraft label. I added a cute rubber stamp and repackaged them simply. I am thinking these will be sold at the festival too. I would pay a few bucks for a cute wipe container like this...Would you?
We rescued this from the yard sale. It was brass and in bad shape. I snipped out the electrics and am in process of pinking it up with some paint and am going to add pillar candles. It will hang outside for alfresco dining this summer. I am loving it.
I reviewed the book The Yummy Mummy Manifesto over here...Please check it out.
Also go over here and try to win this!!!!

Ha! Remember a time when we didn't know what a wipes container was? That outdoor chandelier idea is KILLING ME with its awesomeness.

Love the chandelier! I paid a hefty price for the one I use outside and although I love it I would have loved to save a few of those dollars too.

The chandelier is funny, because today I went to our neighbors yard sale and got a small candleabra, she cut me a deal from $5 to $2, and she told me that was why she had originally bought it, was to do the same thing to it... I about died when she said that... I was like, "Huh! I just read something like that yesterday! :)

I would buy those wipes containers. And I don't even have a baby yet! (See? Packaging is everything!)

And that chandelier is great. I can't wait to see a picture of it in use.
