SOME FUN NEW THINGS ~

I've been looking, hoping to find a cute RABBIT lamp and I found him yesterday.....My BFF and her sweet daughter and I went out for lunch and a little shopping at some new stores that just opened in a brand new strip mall....and.....here this little fella was.....just waiting for me to come along and take him home with me.!!



I LOVE that he is creme colored and has the crackle finish. There's a nice shaped sage shade that came with him.



A lot of you know how I LOVE SIGNS....they are some of my favorite things. Anything graphic catches my eye. When I saw this little BAKERY sign, I was thinking I knew just where to hang it.....then, when I saw that it was $2.00, I KNEW exactly where it would go!


The little BUNNY RABBIT lamp and the BAKERY sign both feel right at home here!!
I HAD A FUN DAY....HOPE YOU DID, TOO.

HUGS, bj

Good Morning BJ,
I so love your Bunny Lamp and your Bakery sign. They do fit perfectly there where you have them. You are always finding such wonderful bargains. I sure wish I could find bargains like everyone else does. I will just have to wait until the Yard Sales start up and see what I can find at them. I posted about your Gift Away on my post for today. Take care my friend and have a great day/weekend. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
