GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT – THE DEAL! Double Gourd Maddness and My New LAMPS!!!!

The Deal
Almost everything I have that makes me swoon, does so 
because of the deal I got.
The $500 Stray Dog Lamp I got for $100.
The $500 coffee table I got for $10 at a yard sale.
My credenza , valued up to $10,000 that I got for $285!
The joy I get in finding a piece of junk and turning it into a million bucks.
NOW That gets me excited.


Anyone who puts any effort into saving money 
knows
this experience…
You have an item (often times expensive) that you PINE for…
you wait and wait and save save and save…
but you know deep down that there is 
BETTER deal out there.
It kills you. You see these things 
in Magazines
and on blogs.
FINALLY you break down, you are just about to
Take the plunge
and THEN
the very next week
you find it for less!

****************************************
This is my story of my Gourd Lamps.
I have wanted these lamps for years.
I pictured the pair of them in my mind
Where they would go has always been up in the air.
I knew I would KNOW when I got them.
I was just about to take the plunge…when…

While in Richmond for a soccer tourney
another mom and I hit a Home Goods and I swear…
I heard the hallelujah chorus when I walked in…
BECAUSE
There they were…a pair of them…
…the right color
