Today I decided before I pick up my coveted lamp I would clean all the window casings in our kitchen, they were simply GROSS! So I guess I do indeed do windows. I can not believe how bad they get in just one year I try to do them at least once a year I may just need to do them once in the spring & another in the fall. Thank God I enjoy housework and being a homebody helps too.
I felt so much better today so after I cleaned the windows I was off to the thrift store to buy my lamp! Guess what? It was still there. Did I come with it? NO! and here is why, I went with the intention & anticipation of buying it & thinking how awesome it will look once I got it painted. I put it in my buggy went to pay for it I even had a coupon for 25% off so I was geared up. Well...the cashier said it was not over $25.00 (it was marked $24.00) therefore I could not buy the lamp using the coupon. WHAT? SO, this man next in line suggested that I pay an extra $1.00 to bring it to the $25.00 we asked the manager and can you imagine she said NO! They would have come out ahead only losing out on $5.00 rather than the $6.00 cause I would have paid the extra to get the discount. All is not lost as I came out with a beautiful mirror to add to my "small" collection of mirrors for $8.00, 2 small glass candle holders $1.00 and one small apothecary jar $2.50 not bad at all. I think I will still dream of the lamp, but something better is out there just waiting for me or I may wait for it to go on sale, I still like this thrift store, so this will not keep me away.
Isn't the mirror beautiful? It is stamped Italy I LOVE it, I have seen mirrors such as these in magazines and always thought they were so lovely & of course I wanted one and now I do!! I will hang it with the other small mirrors & show you later.
I do not know if I will be able to do any DIY's tomorrow, I wanted to paint my lamps but we are to have rain & wind so not great weather for spray paint, so let's see what I come up with.
Thank you & Many Blessings~
