Last week I showed you a sweet vintage lamp I picked up at our local thrift store. I loved it's petite size and thought it would look really charming painted up white. So...that's what I did! Painted it white. I lightly antiqued it and set my cap at finding a lampshade that would complement it's tiny frame. That's proving to be more difficult that I first thought!
I've looked at tons of stores (well, not really TONS, but you know!) since I found the lamp and every single shade I've seen has the newer deep-well socket. I haven't been able to find even one that will take a lamp with a final. I'm not giving up...I'll find something!
Anyway...yesterday my Miss K returned home after spending the weekend here at our La Chaumière de Briarwood. On the way back to her house we stopped off at a thrift store about 25 miles from my home. We walked straight to the lamp area and wouldn't you know it, NO LAMPSHADES! Because I was looking for shades and NOT LAMPS I almost missed an identical vintage lamp to the one I purchased last week in my town. I couldn't believe it!!! Are you kidding me??? The finial is missing on lamp #2 and the socket was different, but I don't care. I was just so thrilled to find another one! I'm still on the hunt for lampshades, only now I need two! I think they will look really sweet with French Lace covers!!!! That's my plan anyway!
Friday night my Mr. AGPMan and I took our Miss K to the Oklahoma State Fair. We had such a wonderful time! There is nothing more fun than going to the Fair with a little kid... We rode tons of rides and even got on the biggest Roller Coaster! EEEEEK!
Here we are on the Ferris Wheel. She won that pink monkey at some side show...
Eating PINK Cotton Candy! I LOVE Cotton Candy...LOOOOOOVE IT! And NOPE...it's NOT on my
Weight Watchers Maintenance Plan!
Miss K is NOT happy about us wanting to take more pics! She just wanted to roll that ball!

On Saturday we went to Tammy's wedding and my camera quit working after only a few pics. I managed to get a few snapshots of the table and my guy got one of my Miss K and I. I was sooo upset when we got home and there were only a handful of photos! :(
The wedding was soooo beautiful! I'll share what I have AFTER Ginger shares hers!
Hope you have a great week! I'm finishing a special order for a Train Case Makeover and having so much fun!
Love to you...
