Remember that lampshade that was beige and needed to be white?  Well I painted it with chalk paint and it's just like a new white shade!

I don't know why I didn't think of that before but I didn't.  Then I couldn't find a shade I liked.  Then I was sitting there looking at it and thinking, hmmm.  What now?  Then a light bulb lit up in my head.  I only used one coat because I thought if I used more it might not give off enough light.  Now I'm happy.

Oh my gosh it's September.  Where did my long lovely summer fly off to?  

My pink hat fits perfectly.  I hope Charlie Daniels likes it.  (kidding!)  No matter, I like it.  Photo soon.  I promise.  I also put a pink feather on it but I'm not sure about that yet.

Today I have to try hard not to eat too much.  The food at the club is really good and it's a buffet to boot so it's hard to keep those portions within reason but I shall try my best.  They are having all kinds of good things, I meal ALL kind of good things.  Sigh...  even cake.

Labor Day doesn't mean too much to me.  Just a big sale day with a barbecue.  It's not lie Memorial Day or July 4th or any number of meaningful holidays.  I'm not really sure why we still celebrate it actually, it was a union thing years ago.  Anyway most of y'all are off today so that's a good thing.

I hope your day is lovely.  Mine will be for sure.  Count on it!


  1. I painted the 2 lampshades in my living room white. They look great durint the day but not crazy about them at night when I turn the lights on. Still haven't found the right shades yet. bugger.

    Happy September! I picked my parents up yesterday in Jacksonville so they are home and I am a happy gal. My sisterdears? Not so much. They are missing them already. My parents are loving the quietude of the Swamp. Is quietude a word? If it isn't. it it now. ;)

    big hugs xoxo

  2. I'm back. Labor Day for me was just a day before I would have to go back to school and teach those little kiddies. Now that I'm retired, Labor Day is just like any day. Sorry.
    The reunion was really good. Not as many people this year but fun to see everybody again. I watched what I ate, especially I didn't eat any goodies. I'm being a good boy with my weight.
    I knew you were a very smart woman. Good job on the light shade. Very smart.
    Well have a great day and enjoy the buffet my wonderful and very intelligent friend. See ya.


  3. You have such a colorful living room. Fits your personality to a tee.

    We have labor day parades up here and the papers runs some history of labor in America articles. But mostly it's the last big trip time for families or when you close up the cottages in some cases and in others, it's project weekend.

  4. Good solution to the lampshade issue! Have fun today, I'm sure you will.

  5. Aren't you smart to think of painting the shade! Madison is looking over my shoulder...she is a pink gal. I think she wants to move in with you and your pink wonderland!!!

    Big hugs, honey...

  6. Well it sure looks great white. Yes indeed. Perfect in fact.

    I can't wait to see that pink hat. Who knew you loved pink so much.

    Being retired everyday is Saturday or Sunday. I like that.

    I'm feeling a bit better today, but I'm still not out of the woods. This cold is awful.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and my very best to Roche. ♥♥♥
