I purchased the lamp above for $1.87 at a Goodwill store recently. It swings in different position and the vintage appeal just beckoned to me. The lamp didn’t come with a shade(not sure if there was one originally). However, I like it without a shade.

The black tubular section was originally a creamish color, so I spray painted it black. I like the gold
and black combination more.I would love to get one of those cool looking vintage bulbs, but either way, it makes a great reading lamp. It was also a great steal; can't beat that!

a few of you may have already seen this handmade blanket on Instagram. I also scored that at Goodwill  for less that $3. It’s crotched using a multi -colored  striped pattern. I knew it was made with lots of love and undoubtedly took a long time to complete because it is a great size. I love it!

Baby Ian seems to love it too? Not sure if he’s smelling it or snuggling… Blessings and one love. XX
