You know, it'd be even funnier if it was the Pepsi commercial MJ. He may be cool, but man, when sings, he's ON FIRE!

HOLY CRAP. I loved MJ back around that time - but is that ever scary. I have to ask - please tell me you checked the price on this.

So, Jim Thorpe is a good town for antiques? Reading your book I saw that you were a patron of Renningers. My wife and I make a yearly pilgrimage to the Renningers (and other attractions) in Adamstown, PA and we're always looking for new places to go.

Part of me LOVES this lamp...
The other more maternal side of me thinks this would be totally creepy in our house with my two year old boy!

Wow, that's creepy beyond words. That's why I stick to the vintage linens and the Jadeite when I antique!

Well, that's just out-right frightening.

It's as bad as when I found the pastel pink gyno table at my local flea market.

That is NOT what you want to be reminded of so early Sunday Morning!

I just checked out your book from our mobile library here in Sonoma/Marin County (California) and loved it. We're getting chicks this week and loved your fresh perspective on your little homestead.

Thanks for the inspiration.

I seem to have not seen your blog before - you are delightful! (You didn't actually buy that lamp, did you:0)

OMG I love stuff like that - I always wonder who would buy that and put it in their house?

Tell me you bought this. I will buy it from you.

LOL! I love finding cool stuff like this- especially from the 80's - I keep thinking... that's not old enough to be vintage! :) Then I recall my own age ... and realize that I'm a little bit vintage myself.

I echo the many commenters who are creeped out by that Michael Jackson lamp...so frightening!
I love the buddha with antlers painting though!

What a hideous lamp!

I know somebody named Jim Thorp. He told me something funny about trying to cash a check in Jim Thorp PA.
