Sharing recipes, crafts and frugal living, the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum. Yoga Instructor said goodbye to her nightly glass of Chardonnay to give up habits that were not serving her purpose in life! The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.


It all starts with a light...

It all starts with a light fixture that I hate. The hunt to find something unique-looking and affordable. I'm not in love with anything at my local Home Depot, Lowes or Ikea. I searched at the Community Forklift and still left empty handed. And then one Friday I went to the forklift and found this light cover in the free pile. Now I'm not in love with it but I do like it more than what we originally had up there. For now it will do.
It was a little larger than the original shade so I used some strong wire to attach it to the base and then put some fun wooden beads around it to cover the wire.
For now it will do...until I find that vintage, totally funky chandelier at a flea market that needs a face lift for dirt cheap.
