Just click on the photo for the link….

Meri and I went out junking last week and I found this beautiful brass lamp at goodwill….

The shade and the hurricane glass insert are perfect.  This is a good sized heavy lamp…it was marked 29.99.  A very nice woman behind us in the check out line gave us a 20% off coupon, so I got almost 6.00 off…..

Happy Belated Birthday, Sandy! I'm glad you're feeling better about it, and I say that nothing takes your mind off of things like having a project to work on. So you go get that spraypaint, girl! I wanted to paint our dining room light, but dearest hubby is against it, so I'll have to go thrift one and paint that instead. He hates change, but eventually he comes around to my way of thinking!
Happy Painting!

It's spray paint not diamonds who are a girls best friend!! This girl anyway. The milk glass shade will look adorable with a red base.

Sandy love the lamp. I've seen that red chandy too. SO cute. I missed your post from your birthday. Happy Belated. I'm glad you're feeling better today. That must have been so hard losing both your parents so close together and at such a young age. I'm thinking positive thougtths a dn sending you hug!

Love the red chandy!

Hmmm... I don't think our goodwill has coupons. I'll have to look into it.

I was glad I was able to get on your blog today but there are 2 others that are still blocked! ♥
