My $1.00 Winter Storm Fix

We were predicted to have a MAJOR ice storm in our area a few days ago...so, while out running amok trying to prepare for the blasted thing, my car violently turned right and parked itself in a thrift store parking lot.
I just sat there talking to "Lucy"...my car, "I can't go in here Lucy..don't you realize this rain is about to turn to ice...just look at your wipers....I see ice forming."
After about 5 minutes, I decided I could make a QUICK...very QUICK run through....
So glad I did, because I found this adorable lamp shade for $1.00! I can also say I am glad I did because I made it home before the ice came....otherwise, I probably wouldn't be posting this...LOL.
So, now I wait and wait for warmer temps so I can get out that spray paint and do a makeover of the lamp....are you with me? Can I get an AMEN?

Make sure you check back with me on February 1st for my 2010 Goals update....

AMEN! I can't imagine what an ice storm is like, nor do I want to. lol! I hope you and your family are doing well. I've been so busy, it's crazy. I miss blogging and all my blogging buddies. I keep trying to find the time for it, but it's tough. Hope the winter has been kind to you. We are finally experiencing a real winter season (for CA). It's been wonderful for us. Many areas not so lucky, but here? It's been great. The rain is very much welcomed and needed. I'll try not to be such a stranger :0).
PS very cute lamp shade. What are you thinking about doing with the lamp base?

Oh excellent Traci!
Glad to see you are doing so well on your goals.
This post actually inspired me and got me to thinking.
I think I will make a list of goals for each month(at a time) to do.Setting a goals for the whole year ahead is too over whelming to me...I need simplicity lol!
