Second Hand Gift!

We received a package from Chris' family last week, and inside we found this:

Can you tell what it is? How 'bout now:

It's a vintage covered wagon lamp! It is totally amazing. Chris was the one who opened the package, and when he showed it to me later, I could not believe that it was real. You turn it on and off by the stick part in the front, and it's my favorite color! My 8-year-old self would have totally died over something like this. I was crazy for all things Laura Ingalls Wilder and anything prairie. I mean - I had a bonnet.

I wish I had a picture of me in a bonnet to show you right now.

Instead I'll show you the terrible failure that was the photoshoot for this vest:

Yes, the vest is supposed to be for me, and yes, that was the best picture...


  1. The wagon lamp is so cute!

    My sister went through a huge pioneer phase when we were kids so we always played that we were in the prairie when we were out in our field with our pony. My mom even sewed my sister costumes.

  2. OMG! THAT LAMP IS THE COOLEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN! That is such a package win.

  3. Just wait.....I'll find a picture! I was reading a blog and this girl said that when they used to play Little House, nobody wanted to be Nellie Oleson so they made the HYDRANGEA BUSH be Nellie!!! How funny is that???


Comments make me happy! Thank you, and look for your response here!
