Church Lamp…Score


Hello everyone, yesterday was gray and chilly but today is sunny and I’ll be heading out for my walk/run,
yes, I said run, soon. At 62 I’m adding it to my exercise routine. This will be my sixth week of doing it, meaning
walking fast and then a burst of running. My stomach has went down and I feel fit and healthy. You see almost 9 months ago
I quit smoking about 2 packs a day, never did I think I could quit but I did using the patch and a generic one at that! So,
I figured if I can quit smoking, (I can do anything!!!) I can lose this 15 lbs. that I’ve gained since quitting, believe me you gain weight whether you want to or not.
Now to the lamp, I’ve had it in the basement for close to two years, I found it at a church sale for $2.00. I
was going to try painting the shade like I’ve seen it done out there in blogland but it was to dirty and looked
terrible.
Here it is :

I have it on the end table in the livingroom, the lamp I had there was to tall, this one looks a lot better and sure saved me money!
 
 
The new lampshade is from Walmart.

One other thing I wanted to show you is the new teal pillow that I found on sale at Kohl’s, new
picture above the couch is from TJMaxx.

Michael brought all these baseballs home for me from Annapolis, he umpires down there.

We have had such a pretty fall this year mostly weather wise.

Love the baseballs and the lamp, but the best part is you getting health. I am so proud of you, quitting smoking and exercising is a huge change. You go girl.

Love your "new" lamp. I love it when I find things like that. I also love your baseball collection. That looks so cute there.

Hope you have a great night- xo Diana

Your lamp looks great!! Love, love, love those baseballs.
Congrats on stop smoking and exercising. I started walking everyday and ended up with a foot problem. It is slowly healing and I can't wait to get back out walking one day soon.
hugs,
