Thrifty Treasures: Lamp Edition

I've been wanting to link up with Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality for a while, but I wanted to wait to feature a really good find from my thrifting adventures! Finally, I have a good one...

I take a walk through the local Habitat for Humanity Reuse store at least once a week. The inventory that comes in and out of that store is pretty crazy so there's always something new to find. One of my summer projects has been updating my bedroom, so I've been on the search for new bedside lamps. But of course, I didn't want to pay a fortune for them. After several trips to local stores, searching online and visiting local shops, I still hadn't found the right lamp for the right price. But last week - I got lucky at the Habitat store - and found this great brass lamp for $10.00. (I also found that great needlepoint art for $5.00 at the Habitat store a couple of months ago!)

I'd been looking for a white lamp to match the clean look I'm going for in the bedroom, so I knew a can of spray paint would do the trick! So, after about three coats and the addition of the perfect lampshade I picked up at Homegoods for $11.99, I had a great lamp for only $21.00. It's not super duper cheap, but considering most of the lamp bases at Target this size started at around $29.00, I think it's a pretty good deal!

What do you think? Now I need to find another one for the other bedside table! The search continues...

If you're looking for more thrifty, fun finds, check out this post over at Southern Hospitality!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
