Thrift find from my friend

Pink atomic lamp
Just a quicky check in to show off my new lamp. My friend came up from  the Ozarks and brought this awesome pink beauty but the shade is my fav part!! Started a new job last Monday, and while I hate starting over, I think it will be much better than the last two with more opportunity to grow. Til later when things settle down, happy thrifting!

Spring redo again!

Once again I am changing! Painted one of my metal cabinets to hold my huge TV, I know, not a flatscreen...it was free! 
Soooo...had to rearrange. I am off work again for a while, so have the time.
Changed colors for Spring to pinks, greens and gold to match drapes
and took my red couch to the bedroom before the hounds from hell ruin it!
Brought my bamboo out! Well, it's nice here 70 + degrees. Hope everyone is enjoying Spring so far. I have the itch to plant!! Talk soon...zoot

After Christmas Mid Century Decorating!!

 Finally took some after Christmas pictures. I like redecorating every year, but it's a big job. I try to do a lot of color to cheer up the place! Always seems so bare after the busy and clutter of Christmas! Enjoy!
