I see the light

I've been looking for a base for this lamp shade for many months and yesterday I found it!
What do you think? I was looking for just a table lamp base and when I saw this ( a light bulb appeared above my head) and I thought this could work. I wasn't going for a tall lamp but love the Art Deco look of this, not that it fits my house but I think I might be putting a new look on a bedroom upstairs and not even know it. Wouldn't the quilt I am making for Trailer Trash look great with this lamp? Maybe a redo of the upstairs bedroom in 30's-40's look would be real fun. It holds a lot of my antiques already, it could look like a little retro shop.

And this little beauty is just what I need for my cutting table in my sewing room. The one I had was a very small version of this and was very dangerous as it got extremely hot. What I just love about this one is that it telescopes and that is just what I need.


  1. Karen,
    Looks like you had a lucky lamp day. Those are nice. I think the floor lamp looks great.
