A perfect match...


On my way to town the other day I spotted that beloved sign....Garage sale!

I pulled up and they didnt have much. I looked anyway and glad I did. This is what I found...

She is so purdy... and only 3.00....yep!

I brought her home and knew just where she should go..

Remember that mirror in my master bath... She is her cousin!

Look how great they look together

I think if I were shopping for a lamp to match I could not have gotten closer

So they are together...

Nice and happy on my bathroom vanity....That's one great find for $3.00

  1. Wow! It's perfect & so was the price.... Love that she's with "family" again. I love me a good bargain.

  2. That was a great find. Everytime I make the effort to get up early (I'm allergic to mornings) and go to garage sales......I never find anything. My parents go every weekend and bring home a few great things amid tons of junk.

  3. Definitely perfect! So much more fun when you're not looking and find something great, than when you're looking so hard and there's nothing. Have a great day! Jackie

  4. Good Morning Miz Susie,
    What a fab lamp! And a great kissing cousin to your other lamp.

    Ok Girlfriend, here's a head's up but you've got to promise not to tell, remember the fluffy frou frou stuff you love for your tassels? Yup, it's on sale next week! But shhhhh, don't say who told you! *giggles*

  6. Hi Susie,
    You did good! I'm surprised she was still there!
    Sometimes I've found that when something is marked higher than a dollar or 50 cents, it has to wait for the right buyer!

    The lamp looks great in your home!

  8. What a great deal! And it does fit right in with the mirror! My husband loves garage sales, but I can't make myself get up early enough to find anything at them!! Have a great day!

  9. They heart each other ;)

    Last week, I spotted from afar....2 tall buffet lamps with some feathery stuff hanging off of the shades...I just had to have them...I made it over there, with my 4 year old in tow...looked at the price, $15 for both of them..hooray....till, the lady told me that the other lady at the sale had just bought them...oh, the heartbreak....sigh....

    sniff, sniff...

  16. Hi Susie, How neat that your husband still has his Awana vest! Our current church doesn't have the program either, but it was a great one! I have been meaning to ask how Jesse was! Hope he is improving quickly! ~Rhonda :)

  17. Wow!!! What a find. It is amazing sometimes what people at a garage sale pass up. The best part about it is you didn't even have to transform it. Just put a dress on it, and set it up. Congrats on the find.

  18. Perfect! That is how it usually works out. If you are looking for something you will never find it but if not, then there it is! I love it when this happens.

    I haven't been to Oops lately but I will tell you....when you go you should get some of those crystals because everytime I see them I can just see them coming out the bottom of one of your tassels. :)

  21. Susie,

    I could never have shopped in stores and found two things that matched so well. They are perfect together.

    I couldn't find any of the birds you got at the dollar store when I looked on Monday. Although the black birds kind of freaked me out too, I found something I'm going to post next week that will make you laugh.

    I'm just a "Susie Harris wanabee" but you are the Queen of Creativity.

    Hugs,
    Gretchen

    What a great find. Congrats!

    My rooster tassel arrived last night, and I truly love it. It has a place of honor in Sunbonnet Cottage.

    I will post about it this weekend.

    You are such a creative marvel.
