Mars needs lighting!

Check out this link for more on these groovy light fixtures....http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_EB46xuiLr3E/S0DZ0PH632I/AAAAAAAABw8/ypHDqzgmwpg/s1600-h/swag-2.jpg
This weekend I found one of those UFO shaped lights that pulls down or up, closer to the table, if you remember. I think they were called retractable. Anyway, a great buy for someone restoring their house to the sixties over at Zootsuitmama etsy! I took more pix and will post the underside that is glass.Vintage sheets are also my new focus!! I found these still in pkg, but went straight to etsy. They sold in a couple of hours! Also found some really cute handmade items, a clothespin bag that looks like jeans, and a calico appliance cover. Hope all are well and have a great week! Talk soon!

Nice finds Z-mama! I had a set of mod sheets a couple of months ago & like yours, they sold right away. Must be the crappy way they make sheets now that are selling the NICE, old ones. Love the light fixture too - did it sell already too?! I checked your store & didn't see it.

Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a message. :) I've added myself as your newest follower and am having fun going thru all your posts and checking out the people YOU follow. So far South Texas has been untypical this summer. We've had LOTS of rain which is very welcome after last years drought. And the rain has kept the temperatures down to the low 90's...woohoo. However, I'm ALWAYS up for a delicious snow-cone!

Thanks Susan! I lived in Dickenson, between Houston and Galveston, for a while. I know how brutal the heat can be down there, so hurrah for you! Thanks for coming by! Isn't it fun seeing everyone's finds and adventures??
