So many people are doing give-aways, that I thought it was high time I did one! So here's a cute little lamp (on the left) perfect for your entryway or guestroom or tucked in a spot that needs some light. It is all shades of off-white with a little antique lamp base of a man playing the violin and a woman holding flowers. (12 inches tall and 8 inches wide.) I made the shade from an old lace blouse and it has covered buttons. A very romantic little thing! I hope you like it!

Another thing that got me interested in give-aways is that I won one myself! In a little gift shop that I love, called "TWIGS" (in La Pine, Oregon) I won the monthly drawing! The owner, Suzie called to give me the news and I stopped buy to pick it up today. Was I surprised when I saw the beautiful yellow shelf - It has four picture frames within it....take a look! Twigs has lots of really cute stuff, and it is always a pleasure to go in and see what's new. Suzie says she sells lots of items that are one of a kind - I may even put a couple of my lamps in her shop! Unfortunately they are not on the internet yet.

So, please leave me a message and I will put your name in a hat for the cute little lamp and draw a winner next week! Good Luck, lol

By the way, have you all gone to Rhondi's Rose Colored Glasses and visited her "Very First Summer Porch Party" this week? What a treat it is! Lots of people are adding pictures of their front porches and they are so beautiful! Check it out if you have time, it's well worth the visit! And maybe my front porch will be completely decorated by next year's party, projects, projects, projects, whew!!

have you got the truck packed yet (for the move to FL)? If so, just bring the lamp with you when you come! tee hee! if you can't stand the heat down here, the next best thing is to adopt me so I can get OUT of the heat! but then i'd have to bring the dogs, cats, chickens and the spousal unit .... oh well ... you know I LOVE YOUR STUFF! you have an AWESOME talent!
