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.

I think the 2nd one intrigues me the most! Definitely funky! Almost like arching fronds of ferns!

The lotus flower shape of the shade on the Quan Yin is perfect though...

Love the 2nd lamp pictured

Most of my lighting is old/unusual, too. Much more interesting!

I keep eyeballing the Goofus glass vases on your website as possible lamp parts...hmmmm

When I saw the header come up "Let there be lights" I thought "Oh no..did she just get power back on from the storm???" hahaha I didn't think you lost power!
Thanks to you, lamps are one thing I discovered that simply HAVE to be all over in a shop to give it one of those final touches! Now, I notice lamps all the time! I still need to rewire that adorable lil pink one I picked up...and need a shade *hint hint*.
I'll send ya a pic of my puppy...I attacked her with the sissors again. hehehe
