The leaves are just starting to change here in Ohio!
Little bits of color here and there. In a couple of weeks
we should be immersed in reds and golds...can't wait!
I changed up my foyer table to welcome in the new season.
Everything is dark, gold and old. haha.
I also wanted to show you my new old lamp.
The base is bronze and very heavy!
The shade is made of shell, I think. (like Capiz?)
It is leaded and the details are inlaid.
Maybe my old-lamp-loving-buddy Keith
(old lamps, not old Keith ha.)
or anyone else for that matter, might
be able to tell me something about it!
I've searched on the internet but no luck!
I was clerking at auction just before my birthday a couple
of weeks ago and this lamp was sitting on a table.
I kept looking at it, thinking how unusual it was and how
much I loved it! But I didn't have a place for it so for a
minute I dismissed the thought of bidding on it.
But I couldn't stop staring at it...so pretty!
When I thought how great it would look on my foyer
table, and that I had a cheap lamp from Walmart on that
table that could easily be upgraded, I went ahead and bid.
The cord was original and very worn, so The Mister replaced
it for me and it works great! And since it was a little
pricey, I told him I picked out my own birthday present.
(that's how you get what you really wanted, you know!)
