One of my favorite blogs, The Polohouse blog, does a "favorites on the first" post each month. This month the feature is on lamps.
I immediately thought of the bird lamp I love that has been put up in a closet every since I got it.
Why the closet? It has no shade.
Four and a half years ago, I stalked it at my favorite shop down in Salado TX when we lived close by.
The price was "high-dollar" as Wild Bill would say. Too much for me.
Then it went into the clearance section of the shop because another customer ruined its shade!
Well, I thought it would be easy to find a shade similar to the oddly shaped one it had, which was kind of rectangular.
That was 4 years ago! It has been in the closet ever since.
This morning I decided to show it anyway, so I brought it out and moved the lamp below so I could put the bird lamp in its place on the side table.
The more I looked at the other lamp's shade, the more I wondered...hmmm?
Might the shade fit my bird lamp?
Yay! It did!
So...thanks to The Polohouse blog and her favorites on the first party, I'm finally able to use my bird lamp!
Here's a link to her blog party. If you have a thing for lamps, you should join up too...or at least come look.
