Let there be lights
I have always had a thing for funky lights and shades, they don't even have to be in pristine condition(oh really). I rarely buy new lamps, but I just had to have the QuanYin lamp, cause I collect her images. The shade is a little funky (new) for me, but her statue is beautiful...so I caved. Old Victorian table lamps with old bulbs and prisms sitting on velvet scarves or on top of a cupboard suits my style as do old shades in various stages of decay. I think they add that bit of decadence and antiquity to my already questionable domicile. But for me it is all in fun, cause tomorrow they could be at the shop with a price tag dangling. Never the 'too serious' collector, there is just too much funky stuff out there and I am always willing to be bribed by other fanatics.
