I lucked out and found a lamp for a good price. I had decided that I didn't want to spend to much on it in case it ends up in the floor in pieces on day....something I have come to expect to a degree with a toddler around. I had planned on buying a cheap wood lamp from Target and painting it. I am glad I took a look around first since I found this lamp only it only cost me $15....the same or less then a painted wood lamp and with so much more charm! I am still deciding id I want to pant the green, wood part since it doesn't really fit into the color scheme. Now to find a lamp shade and decide which fabric I want to cover the lamp shade with.
Here it is....
Here are some of the other fun things I found. I fun children's book. One of my favorite stories in the book is The Little Red Hen.
It was love at first sight when I found this box of cards....I loved the inside contents just as much.....
Some of the cards.
Some more cute cards that are blank inside. Perfect for sending little or leaving little notes to special people.
This one is my favorite...isn't she just so cute. It might have to find it's way into Reese's new room since I am going with a bird theme.
And......here is a sneak peak into Reese's room re-do. I still have to do the binding but I am so glad to have experienced hand quilting this for Reese. I can definitely say that I have blood, sweat and tears involved in this project (at least I was able to get the blood part out before it stained).
A little personal message from mom.....wish I would have attempted hand embroidering before I pieced the back together. It would have been fun to add my own handwriting to it and a little birdie would have looked perfect on it too.
Special thanks to Amanda for doing the machine embroidering for us :)
