Hi, my name is Nancy, I'm a recovering antique lamp buyer. 

I was NOT gonna buy this lamp.  It was on ebay listed at $95 + $20 shipping.  Then she went down to $65 OBO.  I offered $40, she came back with $50......what could I do? 

I was gonna call Passages Malibu for their addiction treatment, but the base cost is $80,000/month for a shared room, going up to $111,000/month for a private room...do you know how many antique lamps I can get for $80,000??


Bye, Felicia

I like the lamp, Nancy, so I think it was a good by for $50.00!

thanks, Chuck, you know you're an enabler?  :-*


This was posted on IG by one of the blogs I follow...they have a lot of animals, but no turtles, so I'm assuming that he's just passing through...

Turtles are surprisingly good climbers. One of our pet box turtles was walking around near the cabin in WV once, there was a small cliff (about person height) of shale where Earl dug out to make it flat, and he set out to climb it, he fell a few times but righted himself, and eventually he came right to the top. Not quite a 90° vertical, but close!

I had those little turtles as a child, but at some point they decided to kill each other  :-X I like turtles, I wouldn't mind having some if I had a garden.

They didn't eat each other, only bite each other. Hamsters eat each other, another bitter experience of mine.

Glad you like it!  I'm pretty sure we have a lot of the same taste in decor/furnishings  :)

Apparently Emmett could have half a million IG followers if I was better at social media...but he's too cool for rhinestone sunglasses  8)


Meet Bagel, a special kitty that’s cooler than you. Bagel, also known as Sunglass Cat, is an Instagram star with over 400k followers and is among the world’s most influential pets. Why? Well, a glance at those cool shades will give you the answer.

Bagel doesn’t wear cool shades just because she’s a fashionista. The 5-year old cat is suffering from a rare condition which demands her eyes to be protected. Born without eyelids and unable to produce tears. This means that her eyes must be protected from dust and the elements, resulting in that blingy eyewear.
