An old lady on the kerb



This morning Steve and I each spotted this lovely old dame on the kerb!

Fortunately it was still there a bit later.
It's the same style as a standard lamp we have in the living room,
although that one doesn't have the table.


And what a shade!
Spectacular inside and out.

The lamp needs to be re-wired so I can't tell yet
how RED this will make my craft room
or whether I might want to 
... ahem ...
find another shade!


But it's just right in the craft room, 
don't you think?
(please excuse the lovely but dazzling sunshine)

(Once I did find a real "old lady" lying on the kerb, 
turns out she was fine and it was just her way of hitch-hiking 
from to the next suburb!)



This morning I also found some pretty new things for my craft room
at Daiso, in Chatswood.
The wonderful shop where everything costs just $2.80 ...


Some Cath Kidston-style accessories


And some paper lanterns
(this turquoise one actually given to me earlier by Emily)



For now I have hung them from an existing hook on the ceiling


With a bird flying below
(made with the Stampin' Up! Elegant Bird die)

Eventually I would like to have them 
hanging on different hooks at staggered heights.

So it's been quite a day for my craft room!

. . .

What's that, you say?

You're still waiting to see ALL of my craft room??

and

Emily's room?

and 

the new upstairs bathroom

and hall?

 ... hmmm ....

sorry about that!!

One day soon ....!

I promise!!

I love the red /orange light that some lights give and it makes the room super cosy and warm.
Hope that you are feeling better soon.

I am yet to see that effect ... Steve has had a go at fixing the light but needs some parts ...
