bad luck at goodwill...

Hope your weekend was fabulous!
 I have something light to ease you back into the week.
I've been getting a little cocky lately after several awesome finds,
even mentioning something to a friend about my 'Craigslist Karma'
well, check this out... 

I loved this mottled, metallic gold lamp shade I recently purchased at Goodwill.


Howdy, Karma!


I about died laughing when I turned the light on and this western scene was revealed.
Chances are good you won't need this tip, but you might check the inside of your shades. :)

Suzan Sweatman said...

LMHO - I thought " what DID she do to that lamp shade LOL
That's hilarious -

Ha! Too funny.

Scrappy Pink Corner said...

LOL. I thought when I saw the shade you were just showcasing different ways to alter one, until I kept reading and realized what it was. What are you going to do with it now? CAn it be painted? I am sure you will find a solution. Ana

Thanks for bringing a smile first thing in the morning, I bet you have already figured out how to fully blacken the entire shade!

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

That is so funny Pam!! Can you remove the scene from the inside of the lamp? Or maybe you will decide you like a bit of western thrown in the mix ;) LOL!

Tiffany Leigh Interior Design said...

THIS is priceless. Too funny.

Diana @ Your Day Simplified said...

That is hysterical. You can't even tell when the light is off. I'm sure you will figure out a way to make it fit in with your chic/cool style!

I wish I could have seen your expression!!!
What did this GEM set you back?

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Oh, that's hilarious! I would never think about that, either! Hmmm, I'm sure you'll come up with a good fix for that!

jtc said...

That is so funny! Put it on eBay - someone will buy it for their ranch or little boy's room. It is sort of cool the way the design is totally hidden until the lamp is on.

Leslie said...

OMGosh Pam.. this is so funny. Surprise! I agree, with the comment above. Definitely for a boys room or ranch style home. My SIL in Montana would love it!

Julie Taylor and Danni Greenwalt said...

This has got to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen! It's almost as if whoever made it said "watch what I'm going to do..." and laughed themselves silly!

I love it! The shade looks so fashionable and what people would expect to see in your lovely home!!! At your next party late in the evening and guests have been sipping cocktails for a few hours, turn on the light and let the laughter begin!!! Too fun!
