There once was an old woman.....

who lived in a shoe.  She had so many children...she didn't know what to do.

Today I'm joining Suzanne at The Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingy Thursday.
I picked up this 50's night light from an adorable antique shop called The Red Barn Antiques.  Unfortunately...hurricane Irene has forced this adorable shop in Upper Jay, NY to close for good.  Upper Jay is in the beautiful Adirondack mountains.... this pretty little hamlet was devastated from the storm.  It'll take some time for them to rebuild and recover.   
 I'll rewire the light so it's again in good working condition.

This is adorable. The weather this year has really caused a lot of places to close....as if the economy was not enough. You were lucky to find this one! Happy VTT!

Cute lamp. You say rewire like it's easy. I've never tried - is it easy? I guess I worry about burning down our house. Happy Thursday.

What an adorable little night light! Don't you just hate it when your favorite little hiddy holes go out of business? There are places and people that I still pine for. At least you have this precious memory to cherish.
Hugs,

Hi There! This lamp is so cute. I feel like I've seen it somewhere before but I can't recall where. That is sad about the antique shop and I'm glad you found this little treasure there before it closed.
