....And the excitement continues as I am really happy with the make over of the hunk of milk glass (posted last week) I fished out of a bin at the outlet. Here it is BEFORE:
Here she is now!
I *love* it! I think the milk glass was actually an up light but it looks right at home like this now...and on my nightstand :) So here are the deets: I took one of those fillable glass lamps --you know, the ones that have sea shells or flowers in it? (mine had sea shells!) -- I gutted it, spray-painted the base, rod and fittings with Rustoleum dark gray gloss ($7). It fit perfectly inside the milk glass and I picked up a lamp shade from Lowe's for $6.50. Not too bad for $14, huh!?
Here are my treasures this week and I must say, it's hard for me to choose a favorite! First up, my Mad Men-esque clock...and it works!!!
|Lanshire mid-century clock, 99 cents, our GW|
I love this speckle-painted art deco peacock! I have a peacock theme going on in the dining/living area room so that where it will live:

Little brass shelf-sitter birdies (try saying that three time fast! LOL) and here they are perched:
These were at the Hanover Habitat for Humanity for $1.50. I am contemplating making them another color but feel guilty over painting the brass --what do you think?
I have been on the hunt for pink/green glass --or what I call watermelon glass. There are some beautiful sets of wine glasses on ebay (Tiffin glass at that!) but a bit pricey. I have lots of stemware so for me, it's not justifiable to spend the extra bucks but being a glassaholic, i really wanted watermelon glass. So imagine how excited I was to see this:
Thank you, Teleflora! Now it is equally true I have lots of vases but a watermelon glass one for 99c means I need it :) I'm linking up!
