This is my sister, Linda and Craig, her husband. When we got there, she was babysitting for two of her grandkids while mom and dad did some last minute shopping. You see, the week before Christmas ...WV was DUMPED on 3 1/2 FEET of snow! People were stuck in their homes and businesses were closed for several days...it was terrible! So, everyone was rushing out at the last minute to get stuff done that they normally would have had done the week before..! The kids are Nolan and Brenton and they had a blast with Gramps and Grammy playing games and reading books and making sugar cookies together!
Happy New Year everyone! I just wanted to share a few pics with you of some of my recent finds! I have been looking to find more "prim" lamps for my home, but am on an Extreme Budget, so......you know how that goes! I love to see all of your black tinware(?) lamps....I WANT one..or two or three!!!!! Anyway, I found these lamps around Christmas with some of the money that my Mother in Law gave us for Christmas. I really like both of the looks, but finding affordable shades to go with them is proving to be the problem!
I just LOVED this lamp....$4.14 is all I had to put for this one.... I SNATCHED it right up!!! It i a gold/mustard kind of color, and I am toying with the possibility of spray painting it flat black....what do you think??? I kind of like the mustard color too...hmm..what to do.....I had the shade already...haven't found anything else I could afford :D
What do you think of this little 'firkin' lamp? Isn't it cute? I found it at Katydids Antiques...the little Antique Shop that I have my booth in...LOVED it!!!! Not so happy with the shade again, but am looking!
