Big bummer (not the same one) and yes, some blessings too.

Yes, two weeks ago I did post about another big bummer.  Yesterday our plumbing really gave us some big grief! I left the house with a clogged kitchen drain and came home to the sink filled to the brim with black water.  ew.  We then went out to eat because the kitchen was well, not very usable at the moment.  When we came back an hour or two later, there was water all over the floor because it had back down through the dishwasher.  (which is still broken) So, as things would be, I took a little breather from the great whole house makeover this fine Saturday morning (interrumpted by plumbing troubles) to tell the world about our woas and the neighbor shouts over the fence that she has another lamp for me!  Oh, and it's the cutest one yet.  You see she has given me  five lamps now!  I'm really rich with lamps.  She's de-junking her house and I'm re-junking  benefiting.  The flashligh in the first picture means it was almost time for bed. The other small one shows a very clogged pipe, which explains why our sink has drained VERY slow for years now.  I guess it was just a matter of time....
  



Now for those little blessings........the top photo is the latest lamp gift.  The others are ones I have gotten from the same neighbor in the past week or so.  I'll be hunting for a shade for that one.  I have been wanting a stand lamp for a while now, so I was especially thrilled about that one.  The others need a makeover.  Share any ideas.  I think the tall, skinny, plain one could be a really big candle stick.


and the others....................

ok, now back to work.  Focus......
