Having shown my poodle lamp in the previous post, I must confess to having a bit of a thing for lamps and shades. Thought you might like to see some others I have around the house (if you don't like lamps you might not wish to read on as that's all there is in this post!) You might have seen some of these before, but being a thrifty girl I do like to get value from my pics.
I love the style of this pleated shade, a car boot find but not so sure about the colour. I added the fabric roses which are actually a hairclip, I think the shell pink goes so well with the green and lifts an otherwise quite drab colour.
Matching plaster lamps on bedside tables, £3 the pair, they had really ugly (to me) orange and brown drum shades which I replaced with pretty pleated pink ones, they don't match but the lamps do so that's OK. The lamps have the sweetest chubby cherubs on them.
There was a glipse of this lovely cut glass lamp in my last post, here's the whole thing.
A shabby french wall light which I just can't find a place for in the house, I won't give up though, one day I will. I'm going to use it as a candle holder rather than a lamp as the thought of cutting grooves in walls does not appeal to Mr. Bloom.
A few lamps double up as display for brooches and necklaces.
This naughty lady who caused me so so much embarrassment - though we've made up now.
I do love the soft glow a lamp gives to a room and some days I can't wait for it to get dark just so that I can switch the lamps on - and I'll bet I'm not the only one!No need for lamplight this weekend - glorious sunshine - well, here, anyway. Not yesterday, when I went out for the (wet) afternoon with my mum and dad, not last (wet) Sunday when I wanted to go to the car boot, but today, when I have to be indoors making these.
A thrifting opportunity during the week yielded this lovely:
I love it but it's quite large and I don't have anywhere to put it, I've hung it in the hall but it doesn't look quite right there.
So I'm not sure whether to keep it, maybe I'll take it to the V&HFair...
Ah well, back to work, see you soon!
