Lamp Obsession

I guess it is time for me to admit my obsession for lamps. All lamps. No matter the style or era. Ornate or simplistic they are all visually stimulating to me. I don't always love them in the form I find them so, I take them apart and re-configure or re-purpose them.
For instance: Display a collection of glass bases or use a metal base as a candleabra, make a cake stand, candy dish, or a patio fountain. The sky is the limit when you have so much to work with. Now, I would like to introduce you to yet another of my off handed creations.

This is in my guest room. Don't be afraid the candles are battery operated.

I just love this Athella, you are so talented with repurposing. This is far more exicting to me than almost anything. I love how you "see" things. Gosh you are getting your blog set up really well. I haven't had the brain power to even post some wonderful awards from everyone...too much stress.. I am lucky I can still type. Well hope you have a great day. Love, Cindy

Hi Athella! Thanks for visiting and following my blog. It's nice to meet you. I must admit I have a lamp fetish myself. I think at last count (my husband's not mine) I had 18. I'm sure I will be adding more in the future if I can find enough space to sit them. I love the ambiance they give a room. I'm a little behind at posting, but am going to try and catch up. I'll be back to visit your blog soon.

It's me again! Got another award for you! I'm sorry I'm not a very good teacher! When you go to my blog right click on the image you want to copy: the two awards I've passed on to you, then left click on the "save picture as" it should take you to your pictures file in your computer and ask you at the bottom what you want to name it and which file you want it in so type that in and click save. Peruse your pics because it should've put it there somewhere! then when you go over to your blog go to add a gadget and scroll down to where it says picture..click the little + sign then when that screen comes up click into the text box to get your mouse there and then right click again and then left click on paste. That should do it! Your blog is set up different than mine though so I hope it works the same! Take care and God Bless you today! Lauralu :)
