FIRST: Woohoo!!! I finally crossed over the hump of 200 followers!! Welcome new friends! I had been bobbing back and forth between 198 and 199 for a while now and it feels so good to finally cross over! I hope my new friends like what they see here and stick around!
(Does anyone know why the pics of my followers aren't showing up?? Anyone having this problem too??)
Happy Sunday everyone! I got to sleep in a bit this morning (thanks hubby), so I'm feeling refreshed. O.k., first, the lamp. My sister bought a brass lamp from goodwill for $4.99. It didn't end up selling at the flea market, so I claimed it as my own. Here's a before picture (obviously it's the one in the middle):
WHY??? Why??? Why is is SO hard to find a "perfect" lampshade for this lamp!!?? All I'm looking for is a white drum shade that is long enough to hide the harp of the lamp. I think there is a conspiracy going on because I went to like 6 different places yesterday and had the hardest time. Finally WalMart had a cream colored shade that was the right shape. Yay! BUT, it is too short and shows the harp. Grrrrr. Seriously??!! Seriously!
Yesterday we had a garage sale and it went really well. We sold a ton of JUNK, and whatever didn't sell got swiftly donated to goodwill. Away with you junk, away!!! Here's a pic or two :)
Noah and Hayden had a lemonade stand too :)
We had a great time being out and about, and the kids thought it was extra cool that they got to stay out until 10pm. Summer rules!!!!
Oh yeah, and I have officially decided that I am going to be a person that gets to have fresh flowers on my table often. It's official!
Happy Summer :)
