    Stargazer - It's amazing how something from our childhood means so much to us as adults. I'm so glad you were able to find a lamp like the one you had. Cherish it and the memories it evokes.

    That's just fabulous, Stargazer. There are few better feelings than that which one gets upon discovering something thought to be gone forever.

    Plus, you've now inspired me to visit Waynesville (a mere 8 hour drive), so you've done a good deed for today.

    That is why I feel very fortunate to be able to afford to replace things that were discarded from youth to now.

    Rattus, if you do decide to go, make sure to stop in Lilly's Corner Mall. It's not only where I discovered my beloved lamp, they also had the best prices in the town, I thought. My mom got a beautiful crock and a butter mold there.

    Good for you Rattus!
    Congrats on the raise Star and on your cool find. I have a Strawberry Shortcake glass my daughter had when she was young. I plan on wrapping it up and giving it to her when her first child is born. I've got to get her married off first though.

    Re: Share your good news

    I like that this thread is busy, it's good for all of you to get good news.

    I have good news as well, I finally have my diploma in my hand, I now am a medical physicist (now, it's just a job I need). It's boring, but we don't get a ceremony, just the diploma in the mail. But now I have it .

    My other good news is that I found a cheap hotel so me and Mr. Fatale can go on a vacation. It's a hotel in Denmark, by the ocean so we're hoping for good weather. It was fairly cheap as well, five nights with breakfasts and dinners for approx. $283 per person (meaning that dinner costs won't excalate, they're already paid for). It will definately be a welcome relaxing time. It's in the middle of July.

    I'm glad too. Congratulations to everyone, and to you, femme, for your achievement!!! That is so awesome

    While some little things are bumpy for me, the big picture is still good, and I'm especially happy that our baby kitty is making friends with his new brothers and sisters. He's so sweet and affectionate with all of us.

    I'm also happy that mr. lei and I will be attending a concert (Matisyahu) tonight. We only get about one good show a year here so it's pretty exciting.

    Blessings to everyone
