Shine On!

Recently I won a giveaway from Kaaren over at The Painted Quilt. Kaaren is a multi-talented lady and the nicest person! Her giveaway was a very special lamp which she hand-painted and signed and it was waiting for me upon our return from the Squash House. I went out yesterday and purchased a wonderful tin lamp shade for it and voila:


Mr. Squash noticed it first thing when he arrived home from work yesterday and was quite impressed! We both think it’s wonderful, Kaaren, and thank you so very much!

Wow, lucky you! The shade looks great with it. We're on our way to Seattle in a couple of minutes. I'll send a wave up your way. Oh, and we'll be in our Pilot too! Happy Easter. I'll email you next week when we get home.

It is a wonderful lamp, love the shade. I think the lucky lamp will look great when buyers come into view your home, definitely keep it lit.

What a beautiful lamp and the shade looks like she sent it to you as well. Isn't it fun to go into these small shops and have to wait? Our shop has a huge box of buttons and the grandchildren love to play in them, but when I am waiting, that is when I find the best treasures!

Candace, it looks spectacular in it's new setting. The shade is perfect, echoing the stars that I painted on the lamp. I'm thrilled that my first giveaway ended up in your home.

Enjoy it for years to come!
