Rockin' with Roy and Neil

As you know, we have just moved in and I am in my third (?) week or is it fourth week, of unpacking and sorting. Things were going into the discard boxes at a rapid rate. Then I had to drag all those boxes back in from the garage (up four steps - oh, my aching back!) and price them for the tag sale. I took a second look and decided to play some of the tapes I was thoughtlessly discarding. Well, I'm telling you, there was good music in those old tapes and I was having fun. I turned the volume to "loud" and got my exercise for the day by dancing. Roy Orbison and Neil Diamond never sounded so good.

Actually Neil Diamond sounded great at the concert I attended. I'd go again in a heartbeat if someone bought me tickets!

Our chadelier had six bulbs burned out. Wouldn't you know I couldn't match the bulbs. They were the chandelier type elongated bulbs. Since none of us liked the chandelier very much, Mr. B had the idea to switch to round bulbs for a more contemporary look.

This is the result. Doesn't it look great? We can all live with the fixture now and spend our money other places.

Next time I'll tell you about the tag sale!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is so nice to meet you! We have a lot in common. My husband and I tend to move, remodel, redecorate and then sell and move on - lol. We just moved into our current home last October.

Love the light bulb idea. The chandelier looks great. Hope the tag sale was a great success!

we have *gifted* many thrift stores because i dislike the prep work of tag sales so much....and the bargaining people like to do. "I'll give you 25 cents."
"But the table is only a DOLLAR!"
"Fifty cents and not a penny more."
Yeah, Neil and Roy would get my motor running too. My feet would be moving for sure.

I hope the tag sale went well.
In 1967 Neil Diamond came to our high school. What a thrill that was!
I can imagine you bopping to Neil and Roy - I know I like to do that when I have big cleaning/sorting etc to do!
