Lamp Love

I have a thing for lamps

sometimes TOO many lamps

so I’ve recently sold some of the extras and have just kept the ones that really like and made over some others


Some of my favs from here at the cottage:

still lovin my

string lampshade

home 077

it’s soft and yet edgy at the same time!

my flowered lampshade

home 064

a feminine touch

baby-slip covered shade

home 068

very cottage-y, I’d say!

Dressy Shade

I love how this one looks like a dress – very couture!

  4. YAY, someone else who has an addiction to lamps. I don't feel alone : ) Wonder if there's an intervention for us?

  5. Each and everyone has such an eclectic vibe to them, but each are unique in their own individual ways....Love them!
