Then this morning, I went yard sale shopping, despite our promises to hold off on all purchases until after the move. I bought half-a-dozen pyrex dishes (we are in the process of eliminating our plastic ware) and an awesome wood bowl set for salads and popcorn. I bought big bag of girls clothing because it was dirt cheap - boutique Christmas outfit for $1? Yes please!
But the greatest purchase of all - the one I just couldn't pass up - was this lamp.
I'm dead serious when I say I think this is the greatest find ever. I have a deep love for unique things. I don't want my house to match everyone else's. That's part of why I quit shopping in stores like Target and TJ Maxx. I want items that are one-of-a-kind and have a story. This lamp used to be a ceramic chicken feeder. The woman having the yard sale said it was her father's and he turned it into a lamp when they left their farm. Oh yes, this is one awesome lamp!
