Helloooooooo out there

Yikes!!!  I've been missing in action!!1
Sorry my bad.
I caught a cold and then salmonella and then shingles to top it off.  It was a try two get one free thing.

But before that happened I found these two lamps at Goodwilll for 1.29 each. 
I actually bought them for my niece but she didn't want any more lamps.  Soooooo I claimed them.
A little white paint and they are happening already. 
As the paint was drying I wandered around my lawn and found a water lily had bloomed.
So I took this amazing picture of it. 
So now that the lamps are dry and I know where I want to put them.  I need shades to just bring that bad boy home.
I searched online for days, this was my laying flat and subconscious days.
I finally found them and then had to wait some more. 
I found things to amuse me.

Meanwhile my half dead tomato plant that I threw in my file cabinet planter decided to take over the world while I slept. 
When I did wander out side I was taken aback and a little terrified.  I've seen "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes"  and I think it started this way. 

Then as I went back to the safety of my home my shades finally arrived.
They were perfect!! 
I really love them <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">
I did a full picture of both of them but the window above the bed has the window fan in it with cardboard and duck tape and I just really didn't want to blow the illusion of harmony.
Even though I just told you about it, hmmmm, ok ignore what I said and look at the picture.

Oh I also broke down and bought some pillows for my couch. 
I still have intentions of making some pillows but sometimes my intentions end up as pavement to a hot place.

PS  we did some beach time too :) 

So there is my account and hopefully I will not disappear again for awhile.

  1. Your posts always make me smile. I'm glad you are feeling better and forget about the two for one deal next time :)

    My goodness, I don't even know where to start.

    The lamps and shades are perfection. That is such a bold colour in your (?) room, but it looks smashing with all of your accessories.

    You played rock 'em sock' em robots with the cat, that alone is worth a get out of jail free card :)

    Really like the patterned cushion with the throw on the sofa.

    That beach looks gorgeous. Watch out for the tomatoes.
