Retro Saturday

We love old lamps around here! Always have an eye open for one in our 'travels'.

A few we 'inherited' from Ron's Mom.

One I remember getting for $2.00 at a YWCA sale way back in the '80's! The glass is like an art-glass piece.

Got this one at the Sally Ann last year and the shade just yesterday at the same place!

This pink and gold one we got at some sale, somewhere.....don't remember. But I loved the colours.

Most of the lamps we get are just the bases, and we keep a outlook for shades that will fit somewhat, and suit the base.

I like the effect that a lamp can have on a room and the ambiance it can create. We have quite a few scattered around the house.

Now that the days are getting shorter, the lamps are working at full tilt. And there's nothing more cozy than snuggling up near one with a good book or whatever.
