What we didn’t buy at the Longest Yardsale! Aren’t these just about the most hideous lamps you’ve ever seen?? The lady at the booth said these had been photographed all day long. I can see why, they are completely over the top ugly. 🙂
Hello, all!! Oh my goodness, did we girls ever have fun at the Longest Yardsale yesterday and I’ll have LOTS to share on that later tomorrow for the Thrifty Monday party. But, in the meantime, please pop over to Houzz and check out the interview they did on me, along with lots of house pics (most you have already seen, but there are a few new ones).
I’m SO honored to be chosen for their feature on different bloggers and their homes. And if you leave a comment over there, you’re eligible for a fun giveaway of a neat item that I especially picked from Hudson Goods. So cute!
See you tomorrow! I didn’t find a thing at the BIG sale, but Layla and Susie did and they will both be reporting in too from our fun weekend. I’ll show you their finds tomorrow, but I did find a really fun treasure at a new flea market that just opened up near my house. Susie and I popped in there this a.m. before she had to head back home and I came home with a vintage somethin-somethin that I just love. Come back tomorrow for the whole story! 🙂
Don’t forget if you haven’t already to sign up for the pillow giveaway in the post below! It’s open until Sunday at 2:00 pm Central time.

Oh, my goodness. I saw them . Commented on them too. Something about them being the World’s Ugliest Lamps.
We are in Ky. tonight, will be heading back to Alabama tomorrow. This year has been a good year…have a truck load.
We spent today following a route on the big 5 state yard sale, but I have been reading about bloggers all over doing this. What’s up??
Love the lamp!! I love owls! Seriously, who would have thought to make such a thing!! LOL!! Congrats on the interview. I am on my way to read it, sweet lady!
Susie Harris says
Im still laughing! We should have bought them babies!
I can’t wait to hear all about it! Also those lamps scare me 🙁

Neato sale!!! And you look cute there!
yuck, how much were they paying to have someone take those butt ugly lamps? I would have loved to go to a sale like that. FunFunFun!
Those lamps are rather ugly. LOL. I’m certain you had a great time. How fun!!! Off to see your interview.
Oh they are awful! But, wait, get rid of those shades, find or make one that is vellum…imagine the light at night! then spray paint the owls white/cream white. Ummmm…somebody would think they were IT!
OM Goodness! Its hard to believe those lamps would have been considered decor items. I’m sure they didn’t grace someone’s home but I prefer to think they were probably part of the decor in a wilderness lodge.
Congrats on the Houzz interview, I’m off to read it now. TFS!

I can not believe you came away from the longest sale with nothing! You must have superhuman willpower! Can’t wait to see what you got at the flea!
And congrats on the interview, but it’s no surprise they would want to interview you, and show your lovely home!
I LOVE those lamps, LOL 🙂 Spray-painted white with a black linen shade 🙂 …I”d have bought those lamps and ignored everybody laughing at me 🙂
OY! I’d like to know *who-who* would ever buy those hideous lamps!!
I have to admit, I like Jaz’s idea tho, lol!

It has been a long weekend..I have been selling at the flea market for two days and my typing stinks at this point so link #43 is the wrong link and link #46 is correct. I am so sorry…looks like you guys all had fun on your trip! xo Joan

What a great interview. LOVED all the pics of your beautiful home!
i would love to come with you guys! what fun!
I LOVE those lamps and actually have several similar chalkware owl lamps in my Adirondack style home. They go *perfectly* with my ‘woodsy’ decor. I would have snatched those up in a HEARTBEAT!!!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder 🙂
