Slim Pickins

Sales were few and far between last weekend. Needless to say I was very disappointed but, seeming hubby and myself were out for Father's Day/ His Birthday I guess all in all not too bad. I hope he enjoys our finds....giggle!!! I found this lamp at an antique mall for $5.00. It even came with the bird poo covered shade....yuck!! Why wouldn't you at least clean it up...c'mon people...really? Anyway I have yet to bleach it and I'm going to recover it with what? I'm not sure yet. As I looked at the lamp I realized it was much older than I thought and metal instead of resin.

 Next at the same antique mall I found these flowers. I've had my eye on them for a while now. They are as tall as my lamp (although it's difficult to tell in the pic). They are in a mesh cone which is very cottage looking. I'm very happy with my $7.00 purchase. I'm thinking of a bird's nest and some honeysuckle vine to finish it off.

 And last is another new handbag. It's a Burberry bag and will be adorable to carry this winter with a sweater. It was $3.00.

Thankfully the day wasn't a total bust. I did manage to swing by Hobby Lobby and find a few more goodies at 80% off. Let's just say I went a little crazy in made up for the lack of sales for the day!!!
Happy Shopping!


  1. You are a lucky lady. Not many men would want to spend father's day shopping.

  2. Hi Crystal!! Thank you so much for visiting, following, and leaving a sweet message :)) I totally agree with LV!! I know that is the last thing my husband would want to do, lol!! But I do love your great finds!! Bird poo and all :)) I recently covered a lampshade with layered ruffles. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!! A glue gun and ruffles by the yard from Hobby Lobby and you've got a keeper :)) After you clean the poo of course, haha!!
    Have a wonderful day!!
