last week i was in a mood for flowers
i get in moods like that
once, soon after we got married,
i told my husband not to get me flowers
i told him that i'm not a flowers kind of girl
i've regretted telling him that a few times since
i still dont think im a flowers kinda girl
but i'm a pretty house kinda girl
and i think flowers will beautify any space at all
so last week, i bought myself some flowers.
see, now after i told you why he doesnt get me flowers, now you don't think he's a bad husband
he's the best actually so i'm glad there's no confusion
anyway, because i'm a cheap-o, i bought one ten dollar bouquet from our farmers market
and divided it into f o u r tiny accent arrangements
i kinda love them
that little girl in the picture frame is my mom :)
when i was placing this beauty of a monochromatic arrangement right next to the lamp
i realized i should tell you about my "new" lamp
speaking of cheapskate
i think lamps are overpriced even at thrift stores
when i find one at a good price, i just buy it even if i dont have a place for it
i'd rather do that than spend $20 for an ugly one at target
or $60 for a good one.
um. no thanks.
i bought this lamp for $4.99, spray painted it in sage green, and knotted twine around it.
the lampshade i had laying around. probably from another thrift store.
the problem was that the lampshade needed a harp
(that's that thing that you screw the shade into. i just googled what it was called.)
and the lamp didn't come with one.
i remembered seeing them at home depot
and much to my pleasure i found them for $3.97
it's that gold part.|
no more balancing a lampshade on top of a light bulb hoping no one touches it.
