Decorating Old School........Loving Lava Lamps!

Remember back in the day when lava lamps used to look like blobs of gel sitting in water?  The uglier they were, the cooler they looked!  I loved lava lamps back in the day and as I began to mature in age and in my decorating style, lava lamps were no longer one of my décor choices.  Well, that has changed!!
I was shopping in Target three days ago and saw this lava lamp just sitting there, right in my view ;-).  The gold glitter caught my eye and as you know from my prior posts, I love the color gold and anything that glitters (that's the crafter in  I was saying to myself, "no way"...this has got to be something else.  I have to admit, it was the new and improved lava lamp, for sure!  I stopped in my tracks and picked up the box to make sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing.  I imagined that Target must have stocked the shelves with these lava lamps because of the back-to-school ideas they were advertising for college and high school kids. 

I really started thinking about where I could put this lava lamp if I was to purchase it.  I couldn't believe I was actually trying to find somewhere for it to go, amongst my current home décor.  Well, I decided that I was definitely going to purchase it "just because" I wanted to....LOL!!  I'm old school and when that old school feeling came over me, the next thing I knew, I was walking to the cash register with this big box in my hand.  I felt like I was back in high school for minute, going home to my bedroom...LOL!  I loved that feeling because those were days that I cherish and have never forgotten.  "So, this is my lava lamp and it found itself a home, right on my desk, in my office!"
It's ok to keep some of those old memories alive.  It makes you feel good sometimes.  I'm loving my lava lamp and my lava lamp is glad to be back home...LOL!!!!!!
