Lighting


This Clear Pink lamp base has wonderful air bubbles that caused me to grab it and bring it home. It reminded me of Murano glass. I know it's old but it has all the elements of Modern fixtures found in high-end stores today. Found the perfect beaded shade and now it's ready for it's debut.



















These Vintage Hand Blown fixtures were commonly seen in Victorian Homes...but the colors and delicacy of these lamps had so much personality I had to make sure they were used somewhere in my home. When they are lit up they cast such a warm glow....that these little gems could be referred to as forefathers of modern design...think of todays Italian lighting.













These Vintage lamps have been collected thru the years...and as many other finds, something about these, just seemed perfect for my tastes and the home I was building. They weren't purchased at the same time nor did they come with the shades or sometimes the metal hangers..but when the time was right they found just the right spot or room.
The White Lamp sits on top the Faux painted Blue Marble wooden top I matched for the room with a small display of antique celluloid vanity pieces. Not sure of the shade yet...but I had to put it out...I loved the leaf pattern to much not to use it.

I just popped in from Rhondi's site to say hello! Love all the beautiful things, like the lamp with the leaves, and the hutch. Also the wrought iron gates, wrought iron always makes me think of Madison, IN where I was born - it is everywhere, on fences and gates and things.

Have a wonderful day.
