No Genie in this Lamp!

Even though it needed some TLC this lamp caught my eye at one of my favorite thrift stores for the total of $3.01. My heart pounded! When I got my lamp home I cleaned it up, played with the wiring a bit, and threw on a harp and the too small of a shade I had around the house. Not only does the top light up but a tiny bulb in the bottom lights up too! This little gem will be going into my new/old sitting room. I may not have any funiture to sit on, but at least I won't be standing in the dark.

The Gift of Friends

I have been blessed with many wonderful friends. Waiting for me when I arrived home from work Wednesday was a small package and a card from one of them... MaryLou. She was wearing 'Flower' parfum the night before at bunco and I kept sniffing her out to enjoy the scent. In my package was a brand new bottle of 'Flower' in one of the most adorable bottles ever! But even sweeter then the parfum was the wonderful card offering these words of cheer and encourgement "a new month, a new day and a new parfum". So I am taking her advice. "Put a smile on, enjoy." You rock MaryLou!
