Kathleen is on her 57th White Wednesday over at her FADED CHARM blog.
Pop over there for more WHITE!
Whenever I find a super-duper-can not leave this one here- deal on a unique light...I grab it.
Because I know it is a once in a blue moon find for me and the price will never ever be found anywhere else.
That's what happened with this one. It was in a Habitat for Humanity Thrift Restore.
Hanging there among many modern day contemporary lights and chandeliers, it stood out in it's "vintage-ness" (just made that a new word...)
It was brass of course, and had no crystals on it, but good wiring....and I could see the potential.
I had been wanting a brighter wattage light in my living room where there is NO ceiling fixture. There are only small table lamps.
The old hanging light looked out at me and whispered, "corner of the living room". I had a Restore worker get her down, and promptly made her mine. A few weeks later, she was transformed with a new WHITE coat, her own crystals...and hung in my Living Room by the same cute, handy-dandy, honey-do man. And there she rests.
Here's another small white thrift find. So thrilled when I saw this on the shelf. Another Beatrix Potter cutie to go with my Peter Rabbit clock! A medium sized metal bucket for a trash can at my new desk nook.
And none other than Mrs. Tittlemouse. Anybody remember her? Nervous little mama always cleaning! She will now hold balled up paper and trash that printed out wrong. She rests under the wicker printer stand right beside the computer station. LOVE her!
And last but NOT least, is this very practical purchase off of my favorite Craig's List. Been wanting one of these for several years after our last one broke...but just didn't want to invest the $$ into one...
saw it listed.. "like new OSTER ExpressBake Breadmaker - used twice...works great - $20.00" (I researched it and read excellent reviews.. retailed for 79.95 on Amazon)
You know I went and got it. It was truly like new, super clean and with the recipe book.. - Works Great! I have made a French white bread, Onion Soup Mix bread, Cinnamon-Raisin bread, and Apple Spice bread so far.
So, that's my contribution to Kathleen's White Wednesdays for today.
**Watch for those old lights, but check the wiring and make sure it is decent or you will have additional investment for new wires.... :-)
I'll leave you with little Woobie, Justin's "Lonewolf". ahhh Woobs, are you daydreaming of you and Justin taking a walk???? Soon, Woobie...Soon...
Thanks so much for dropping in. Thanks for your prayers for our fighting men and women. God bless YOU!!!
