I've been wanting an antique lamp for my kitchen desk
for quite a while now but they always seem to go
out of my price range at the auctions.
Yesterday I spied this pretty lamp.
She was an oil lamp originally, but had been converted to electricity.
I love the shape, colors and lovely hand painted flowers.
She was filthy, so she had a bath in the kitchen sink.
I think the only thing I want to do is get a glass chimney for her.
It's not necessary, but I think a couple inches
of one sticking out the top would complete the look.
Mr. Cardinal looked in an seemed to approve. ha.
Isn't she lovely?
And look at this one. I like mine better!
And that one needs to be repaired.
Oh, and the price was waaaay better, too. ha.
