Not so good news, Fallin and Painting

Good Evening Blogger friends! I hope everyone's week is going well. This has been not so good of a week for me. Over the past month I have felt incredibly bad. I don't know if I have shared before that I have Sarcoidiosis in my lungs along with COPD. My sarcoid had been stable until now. My pulmonary doctor told me Monday I was having a flare up again. So I am back on the Predisone and Methotrexate. I hate the Predisone because I gain so much weight when I take it. So I am not a happy camper because my weight is already and issue for me.

The symbol for Sarcoidiosis is the snow flake so I guess you can say.........I am snowing again. LOL

Oh well on the fun side, I have been doing some more fallin and painting. So without further ado I will share with you with you my projects!! Hope you enjoy!



This is what I did with the table. I spray painted it of course with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. I think it looks so much better than the gold.

Fall tweaking!

I had these two tall candlesticks when we lived in our old house. They were looking shabby so I updated them with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. I bought the candle votive holders at Big Lots.

Up Close of the Candle holder.


  1. So sorry that you haven't been feeling well.
    My son has to take steroids when he has a crohn's flare, so I know what you mean.

    I love your little side table and your candle holder. I'm glad that you are able to do some projects and keep busy.

    Hope you feel better soon.


  2. Oh no, I am so sorry that you have had a flare up. Hoping you will feel better soon! Love that little side table. Great job!

    Love how you transformed the little gold table from gold to bronze...the red silk lamp shade looks beautiful on that table.The table is an amazing find for $5... I liked all your wonderful hauls from the community yard sale. I love shopping at Big lots... those fall inspired candle holders look perfect for fall... beautiful colors and shape of the candle holders. Thanks for your endearing comment on my Tuscan room and I hope and pray you recovery quickly. Blessings~Poppy

  11. Hi Susan,
    I am so sorry to hear you have not been feeling so good and are having a flare up with your lungs. I pray is goes away quickly and you are feeling good again.
    In spite of not feeling good, you still manage to create such pretties. I love how the rubbed oil bronze looks on all your great finds. Everything turned out great. Your Fall decor is sure cozy and inviting.

    Take good care my friend and many prayers for better days ahead.
    Love to you, Celestina Marie

  12. O, Susan..I am so sorry you aren't feeling well. I don't know what the illness you mentioned is, but it sounds bad. So sorry.

    I love that little cute. I need to do some painting of things and since the weather is a little cooler, I might get some of it done. :)

  17. It's been a while since I was here to post..
    I know how hard it is to deal with health issues...I'm very sorry you are having a flare, know ALL about them..and they are not fun to deal with.
    YOU YOU SURE YOU SHOULD BE USING SPRAY PAINT with your current lung condition ? You may want to check with your doctor on tha that one. PRAYING FOR YOU RIGHT NOW.
    I am hoping that I am able to post this time...I tried a different approach this time, so I hope it works.
    Love, Rose
