So I'm blog hopping this a.m. in my p.js and hot cuppa and The Other me is Sane has this neat post about Favorites on the First. Thought I'd join the party. I have a thing for black, and I another thing for butterflies. So many, many years ago when I saw this lamp at a craft fair, I needed it. My husband was not so happy, the $ was a little more than he wanted to pay, not to mention that he preferred to watch TV in the dark. I've always been happy that I didn't lose that disagreement. It's still one of my favorite lamps, even after all these years. I've changed the shade a couple of times, and of late I've wanted to disassemble it so I can properly clean the glass, I'm a little nervous about that, since I may need some "electrical" assistance from handy Andy, and he's just such a calamity. Lately I've wanted to do a lampshade class. My upholstery instructor is big on lampshades as well, and she just amazes me with her enthusiasm. Yes I could probably go and buy a lampshade, but ... I've never been very good at that, I just need to add some blood (from pricking my finger) sweat, (from the too hot studio), and tears, (handy Andy had dirty hands when assemblage happened) to everything. Silly wife, what could I be thinking. So if you have a favorite lamp hop on over to Polohouse, Favorites on the First.
