Here are the lamps I promised to show you a few posts ago. The picture is kind of bright (go figure...) but if you look hard enough, you can tell they are aqua, which means they are perfect for our bedroom. They are the ones I got for $12.99 apiece at Big Lots! I love to go there. We only have one in Salem now, they closed the big, cool one. Anyway... I used to be much luckier there in the past, but once in awhile I find something. There were only 2 aqua ones, I felt SO lucky! Most of their things are a lot more expensive than they used to be, but if ya look closely... well, you know...
They are a birthday present from my Mom, and while out and about that day I had enough birthday money leftover to buy 2 of my fave Somerset publications! I soooooo love them, don't you? One of them I devoured the same day, and the other one I put away to save as a treat for myself after all of our company was gone. Even though it's been a wonderful month full of family I adore, it was good to be able to be "off" for a little while.
So, I was going to settle in with my saved lusciousness! Then, you guessed it... Um, I apparently put it in a -very- safe and clever place because now I can't find it. Send me to the geriatric ward. (Or better yet, a spa)... At least I know I'll have a fun surprise waiting for me sometime, somewhere!
Anyway, in the pics below I would like to tell you that I purposely did them all differently with new fangled applications on my fancy camera.
Yeah, that would be a fib. I took them all within the same 2 minutes with the same clunky camera on the same old setting (I think). I'm a little jealousflabbergasted in awe of you girls with your gorgeous pics. (Just not jealous or interested enough to ever want to learn that technical stuff myself). So, I'll keep posting my "clunkers" 'cause I know you get my drift!
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!” -Jack Kerouac
