Look What I Found

So Wednesday before going to work (I love saying that), I stopped by the church basement....And I found this


A big drum lamp shade...for .....75 cents!


Never used still in the wrapper....

I couldn't bring it to work; after all it was my first day and I didn't want them to think I'm a crazy thrifting scavenging with full blown Pyrexia weirdo...They'll discover that about me soon enough, I'm sure!
So I asked the nice pink lady if she could hold it for me until later that day. And she did...

Now yesterday I put it on the base....And it looks like this


Let's just say that the jury is still out on that one. It makes me see that the living room is SOOOOO outdated!

Now about the job...just a quick reminder that I spent the last 2 years blogging,gardening,cooking and basically doing whatever I wanted when I wanted...So Wednesday night I was soooo tired at 9:00 pm I was all tucked in and probably snoring. Now at 5:00 pm yesterday, after my shift, I went grocery shopping along everybody from my town, I mean everybody! Whew too many people for my taste....The legs oh my! Last time I spent 5 hours straight  standing up behind a counter...well I was 18!

Besides that it's great fun and TGIF!

That was a great find! Shades are so expensive and drums are hard to find.

That is a great shade! WOW, I always end up taking home stained ones never new. And I know what mean about being tired... When you do something new its always like that

Starting a new job always knocks the hell out of you! But it's a good kind of tired.

Nice find! It was so sweet that she saved it for you.

Poor legs.
