Week-End Finds

Since my visit to Las Tias last week, I've been on the lookout for some mid century pieces at a price I can afford.  My mom, sisters, and I took a drive to the North area of town and found a few great thrift stores. I found this super cool table lamp for $25 at a Salvation Army.  It was a little more than I wanted to pay for it, but I couldn't pass it up.
I'm not sure if I am going to leave it as a lamp, or convert it to a little side table.  I love the wood slats and I can try to figure out something to fill the whole at the top if I pull out the lamp hardware.

This little wire basket was $3.00 at Goodwill.  I'm thinking for ribbons and things.

Excuse the poor quality photos. I'm trying to work with my camera settings to have pictures with a lower resolution to help them upload quicker when you open my page, but I'm not loving the quality.  I will keep working on it.  Have a great week!

Edit to post:  I joined an awesome linky party at Finding Fabulous.

Great great lamp. I would try it as a lamp first because it's a fabulous one - so unique too.

That table lamp is a nice find. I think it'll look pretty sweet as a side table, can't wait to see what you'll do with it. Oh, I miss thrifting so much. Thanks for stopping by earlier. I love Paris. I bet all the greenery in spring will be so lovely.
