this is a score story. i sold some crap off craigslist and was meeting the lady to deliver it and also had 6 trash bags of donate. yes, i said 6 and no that isn't even half of what needed to go....that's all i had room for in the car. anywho, the g-dub i usually go to was way across town so i stopped by a salvation army and dumped my stuff there. i wasn't going to go in, but audrey and oliver were being good, so in we went. i was walking around, got some random goodies. i always go through the toys, baby clothes, picture frames and household stuff.
i walk by the furniture, some decent, nothing saying "kari take me home, stick me in your garage and pretend you have the time to redo me!" then i saw it over by the lamps....a huge freaking lantern.
it's 30 inches tall and 17 inches wide!! i swear it weighs like 15 pounds!
it's going to be red and hang over my kitchen island. i hope to have it done in a week or so!
now some inspiring lantern pictures.....
