You’ll see that I’ve been busy with the yardsale lamps I found recently. After seeing some rub-on transfers that Manula, at Pleasures of Homemaking, found at Hobby Lobby for her white pumpkins, I got a couple of packages and went to work on beautifying these lamps and they worked like a charm. I’m still deciding on lampshades, but I’m leaning towards covering some drum shades with a black/white fabric…still to be determined and I’m looking for some inexpensive lampshades.
I still don’t have the aqua chair here at my house…gonna have to work on that one with Grandma Eleanor. But I did go up into their attic and take a sneaky pic for you to see. Isn’t it the cutest? You see, she still thinks that this chair is going over to the little cottage once the work is done and that she is going to stay there for awhile. That is not the case (she’ll get to visit, but no way is she going to move in there), so I’m going to have to tiptoe around this one and not rile Grandma up over it. She was recently talking about how she is going to plant some roses over there. Oh my, the delusions of grandeur! She’s almost 90 years old and has no business trying to plant flowers over there, especially for someone else to enjoy.
I do think that eventually she’ll let me use it in my room, I just have to let this play out with the cottage and not try to rush it so my redo may take longer than I expected. I took a bunch of pics at their house, as well as more in their current attic and I’ll share those with you next. Talk about the stuff, they have got it! While in TJ Maxx, I couldn’t resist this big fat monogrammed mug for $4. Always need another to sip something hot from in the coming Winter. That’s me and my niece, Lauren, in the pic on my office shelves in case you are wondering.
Just a sneaky peek from me!
