what i got for $2.50

This lamp I got back a few months ago and was originally brassy and rusty. Since it was winter and too cold to spray paint, it sat in our workshop until the other day. I got a can of spray paint in one of my favorite colors and went to town. I paid $2.00 for the lamp (it works) but it did come shadeless. I am making do with one I took off the lamp that used to sit on the table. I love my new lamp; I think it pretty much rocks. I will have so much fun thinking of different displays to go in it.

My next find, well actually my husband's, is this book for 50 cents. He loves all nature and earth books, so this is right up his alley. It has a lot of interesting things in it, plus I think the cover is pretty neat.

  1. That lamp is awesome! I have never seen anything like it before! I hope you'll share if you do end up using it for creative displays. They'll be fantastic, no doubt.

  2. Great finds this week. I love the lamp, I feel like I'm on a scavenger hunt week after week :)

  3. That lamp is awesome! I've been eyeing a set of those at Target but would much rather thrift snag them! Great job :)

  4. The lamp is a great find, but, I must admit, I'm really jealous of the book!!! And for only 50 cents! Fabulous!

  5. Love your finds! I go goo-goo over old books. That one really looks like one I would have grabbed quickly.

  6. so i can't work out what you spray-painted. the greeny bits? cool lamp anyway.
    and great cover of that book.

  7. Yeah, Monica the greeny bits used to be that horrid fake brassy rusty stuff


Thank you so much for bringing your energy! It fills me up to see your comments xoxo
