Got a Lamp Post?

Remember these?

Back in the day they were a thing. Homeowners had them installed to illuminate their front yard. I guess they were the precursor to today’s solar and dawn to dusk lighting.

We have one.

It used to light up our walkway but once it stopped working it was just there. We never gave it a second thought. That is until COVID…

COVID changed a-lot of things including how I viewed my lamp post. Suddenly our useless lamp post became a fun and useful member of our household.

First as a Balloon Vendor for Halloween. Then again at Christmas as a directional sign and pedestal.

All this came about as a result of me being home due to COVID-19. Much like the box that “started to look like an oven to me” our lamp post took on a whole new persona.

I have an idea for Spring and Summer this year. Any guesses?

You’ll have to stay tuned to see. 🤔


My daughter Maiah (pronounced Maya) is ALWAYS finding something to spend money on but not without first doing her research to ensure the products are top notch.

She’s found the best lashes( gel nails (, lip scrub and skin tint ( facial steamer ( to name just a few. Her most recent discovery is a Sony ZV-1 Camera Bundle. She’s says it is the best beginner camera for vlogging and creating content on YouTube and other social media platforms. As a soon to be content creator myself, I plan to purchase one. Why? Because if Maiah says so – I know it’s the best of the best!🤗
