Thrift Shop Thursday

Look what I found at Goodwill the other day.



I know you are questioning my judgement at this point, and to be honest I thought it was a little ugly too, but it was the right size and I thought it might work. You have to have an open mind if you venture into thrifting.



Doesn't everyone want a "vintage" burlap shade? 
Guess not.

For $3.99, it was worth a try, really it's not that bad.



Yep, I knew it, a perfect fit, but something is missing.



A little bit of grosgrain ribbon makes all the difference, suddenly it doesn't look like it belongs in the trash. 



TA-DA!!!

She's looking good, but has to get out of that Monroe Bisque room, it does nothing for her. 

                          HAPPY THRIFTING!

LOVE the lampshade! And the ribbon makes it even more perfect. I love how you know just the right finishing touch for any object. I would have stared at that lampshade for days... :)
Love,
Helen
