Green vintage lamp and green growing onions….

Yep, that is what my post is about.

Let me explain myself.

I found this pretty little, vintage lamp at a local thrift store for $4.00.

Pin It

It is replacing the tall lamp that was in the corner of my living room.

I bought the shade from Lowes.

This ceramic lamp has made the “circle” and come back into style.

I think…..

Which worked out well for my budget.

I was so excited and plugged it in….

It didn’t work.


With my glass vase into a lamp experience, I think I can re-wire it. Look out homeowners insurance!!!

I have heard that is easy.

I don’t know who I heard that from and they probably never re-wired a lamp but I shall let you know!

Luckies! ; )

Now, onto the “growing green onions”…….

Did you know that when you cut the root tips off of your green onions, that you can put them in water and they will grow back?

Like overnight.

Which would give you an unlimited supply of green onions.

Some of these with the brown roots I removed…fyi. You can still eat onions at my house and not be scared.

Do you eat green onions?

I do in an oriental salad that I have to tell you about soon and fried rice.

This would be neat to do with your little ones. My 17 year old and husband do not seem too impressed.

I am not sure if this “mini garden” will be making it in my kitchen or not.

I do “plan” on having a full garden this year.

I love being able to pick fresh vegetables that I have grown.

The green onions aren’t giving me the same “thrill”.

I guess I’m hard to please.

But the lamp……..

I think I like-y.

What about you?

Let me know!

I can’t wait to hear from you.

    I Love the lamp and in my opinion it HAS made the full circle!! Good choice of shade as well, it should look great replacing the “too tall for the space” lamp.

    I am flabbergasted at the green onion magic and amazed I’ve never seen it before!! I’m going to forward this to our daughter so she can show her two boys!! I have gardened to some extent or another all of my life but I did not know the go’s would regenerate! I love it……learn something every day!! Thanks so much for a great idea Rebecca!
    Hugs to you all, VBg

    Yes, I love the lamp!!! Be careful rewiring, but I’ve heard it’s easy too. The green onion thing is all over blog land & Pinterest lately. My husband cooks and he keeps throwing them away. Men….at least he likes to cook!!! Have a great week~Hugs~Lori

    I do likey the lamp!!! Be really careful, though!! I thought I had successfully rewired a lamp and when I plugged it in there was a weird hum, the lights flickered in the room and the plug shot out of the outlet…I _think_ I could have been electrocuted…still not sure…and 20 yeas later still barely ever change light bulbs without wincing!! lol!!!

    Now, the green onions…I’m _so_ interested in this!! I didn’t know they grew back like that!!! I’m gonna do it!! 🙂

    I’ll be trying the onions right next to the avocado I’m rooting in a jar on my windowsill

    I just tried the green onion thing too and I am sooooo excited about it. It doesn’t take much with me…
