Wow! I think this makes 3 days in a row I've posted! That's a record! But all of a sudden I have lots of different things I'd like to share!
Yesterday when I headed down to Lowes to see what I could find for the black birdhouse - well, I kinda "stopped by" an Antique store that was on the way. You know - one of those "spur of the moment" kinda "fly by the seat of your pants" kind of thing. (hehehe)
Well look what I found!! I fell in love with this. It was on the tippy top of a bookcase, pushed to the back, and I had to move a ton of things to get to it . . . but I got it! I have very specifically been looking for something different to hold my favorite stamps on. Boy do I have a one-of-a-kind now!
It's about 20" high, and it's already shabby-chic'd!
It's just an old lamp foot base, the middle body of a lamp, and the finial,
with 2 very thick tin plates, one of which has been
bent up in sections on top to make it smaller.
It weighs a ton!
I love the details on the top.
This little guy is so cute.
See? It's just an old heavy lamp. I thought it was a pretty clever idea.
It's just so perfect for my special stamps. I can see what I have at a glance, and it's very convenient. So I am VERY HAPPY!!!
I know, weird post. But hey! It's the little things!! I love it!!!!
Mark asked what I wanted to do for Mother's Day and I of course said "Go to the Rose Bowl swap meet!" Couldn't go last month because it was held on Easter and the month before that we were out of town. I hope it isn't so blazing hot that I die. I need to go while it is somewhat cool, otherwise I am one miserable person. I DO NOT like the heat. I know! I hear all of you saying "Well then Karen, buy a cabin in Colorado!" I know! I'm working on it!! LOL
Have a good weekend! Happy Mother's Day everyone!
