A few weeks ago, I popped into Goodwill on my way home from the gym.
I almost always head to the lamp aisle first.  I have a whole regular route to be quite honest.
But back to the lamps....My eyes immediately fell upon a beautiful golden globe lamp. 
Ha, you thought I won some big award, didn't you?  Hardly - I can't sing, I can't act, 
heck, I can't even snap my fingers properly.  Again, back to the lamp.....

How could I pass this up?  

You won't believe me when I tell you I only paid $10 for it.
IT'S TRUE, I promise. 
And I picked up the shade at my local grocery store for $12.99.
That's right, you can get a gallon of milk and the perfect drum shade at my Kroger. 

Here's the thing, in order to find great things at thrift shops, you have to go often. 
I never set out to go thrifting, I just quickly stop in a few of my favorite stores when I'm close by.  Rarely do I ever go out of my way to thrift. 
I am planning a post on thrifting for next week. 
Stay tuned.

Oh, and I prefer to call it treasure hunting, seems classier, don't you think?
Are you a treasure hunter?

  9. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due
    to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
