Wednesday is the day I take my grandma to the beauty shop. Seriously If she wasn't in the chair by 1:00 sharp the world as we know it would come to a grinding halt....
Well after we visit with our FAVORITE hair dresser Deanna. we go out to wal-mart to get granny some groceries. Theres a Goodwill store next to the wal-mart and I asked grandma if I could stop in there "What are you looking for?" she asks "A Tv lamp" I say "either a black panther one or the drama faces, but they provably wont have anything." My grandma replies "You never know...."

So I walk into Goodwill and the Retro Gods give me a sing i'm going to find something worth my trip, how Do i know this you ask? "Oh Mickey your So fine" is BLARING over the stores loud speaker...lets do this... I hunt up and down the isles thinking maybe they will gift me with a pyrex bowl, or perhaps some dishes or matching glasses, but nay it was not so. Just as I am about to leave empty handed I spot the top socket of a lamp that I thought was made form a wicker basket. but as I stepped closer, I saw pink black and gold and literally had to slam my mouth shut from emitting a squeal like that of a school girl!
I was just about to become sad because this lamp requires a clip on bulb when I remember this 2 sided picture one that I have. My grandmother bought it for me on a whim, and its a $56 lamp shade *GASP* I know... but it goes excellently with this lamp base! I'm going to have to get a light kit from Hobby Lobby and I will be going back to Goodwill to see if theres a mate by chance (I looked and looked but I don't think there is).
Either way i'm happy!
