I bought a ton of junk this weekend. Friday proved to be a good day for yard saling. I stopped at a Church sale, five yard sales and a sale at the Senior Center on the way to my Grandmother's house where I brought home more things (less exciting things like groceries, light bulbs, batteries and one exciting thing - a sweet little 19" flat screen for my kitchen). Anyway, all my treasures made me giddy, but when I got home and started unloading and unpacking, I got a bit overwhelmed and never took any photos of it. I will do that tomorrow.
I did see an Estate Sale in town that began on Friday and ran through today. I went to the gallery and looked at all the photos, but I only spotted one thing that make me happy. And, one thing wasn't enough to make a special trip. But, today we were going to the Flea Market and out to eat, so I just happened to make the car go to the Estate Sale. (I had noticed that Sunday everything was 50% off).
We went in and walked from room to room - lots of dolls, Asian items and glassware. Not my sort of thing. I said, "Where's the stuff I like?" And, the Bean responded - "The garage is that way and there's a shed out back". Ah, that's my boy!
As I went to head towards the shed, I stepped out onto the back porch and spotted the one thing that I had spotted in the Gallery. It was still there! What was it?
This completely freaking adorable hanging lamp. Oh, my gosh. I just lurve it so much. The chippy party hat, the face, it's just too much. (I took off that gaudy chain right away).
She was priced $20.00, but I got her for $10.00. Actually, I got a box full of random things and her for $14.00, so I think I did okay. I am going to glitter her party hat pink. Oh, she is so much fun!
She will hang in my Office and make me smile every single day!
