Have you ever had one of those days when you actually heard the thrift store calling you? I had one of those days recently and boy was I glad I did! I really wasn't expecting to find anything special but I stumbled upon this.
Okay, so if you know me at all you know I love nothing better than an amazing thrift store steal. Unless, of course, it's been French-i-fied. Bingo on both counts.
$5.99. I'll say it again. $5.99. Score!
Love how it looks on my Wal-Mart revamped lamp.
My pictures really don't do it justice, but I'm hoping you can at least see the blue/brown color combo that's just to die for. Not to mention the whole French grain sack script thing going on.
There were actually two of them and I snagged them both right up, feeling rather giddy if I do say so myself. Now I'm no French scholar or anything (6 years of study way back when) but I'd have to say that the writing on the shade doesn't really say anything. Strike that. I meant to say that it just doesn't say anything that makes sense! If anyone out there can shed some light on it, please leave a comment!
Either way, I'm not upset over what it says or doesn't say. I'm happy about how it looks!
To all you U.S. readers, happy Memorial Day weekend! We're spending it at the lake. Today it's chilly temps and overcast skies. But hey, it's still the lake!
What are you doing this weekend?
