Spring Find

It's about time!  Right?

Went to my first estate sale of the season Monday and got some great deals because I went just before closing time and they were changing all the prices for Tuesday.  Picked up this sweet Art Deco Boudoir lamp for around $4.00. (Don't look at all my junk!)
Looks like the man of the house used it in his workshop and abused it.

Here it is after I cleaned it up and added a new cord.  The cord cost twice as much as the lamp!

I Survived Snowmageddon

We have gotten off easy so far this winter with minimal snowfall.  This one was a workout.  If I had been working I would have missed most of the week, as the city plows didn't do my side street until Friday morning.

This is the walk out to the garage. 

This is the front porch.  Ignore the tacky paint on the bricks.

Out the front gate to the street. Since I live on a corner I got all the snow that blew down the street North to South.

The driveway.  All shoveled by hand, I'll have you know.

As far as I got on Thursday because the plows had not yet been through.  I didn't want to duplicate effort and wasn't going anywhere anyway.

My unplowed side street.  

Taking pictures with mittens on is hard.
