My friend Alison at
I don't really join in that much because usually I don't have that much time to figure out how to do it
even though I know link parties have to be simple
I want to make sure I do it correctly
today I decided to give it a whirl
first things first....choose my favorite lamp
(this caused me to kind of copy her**hope that's ok friend**as I went through my house
in search of my favorite light for her post)
This lamp was purchased at a benefit auction donated by my kid's great Aunt Rosalee
none of them had a place for it,
like I did, but I thought someday one of them would
and be glad I purchased it
I love these sparkly buffet lamps..a purchase from Hobby Lobby
the shades are paisley velvet
crazy about these chandys from Lowes!
Beautiful and such a fair price!
We bought this at a trade fair near Dallas...I just had to have it
you can't really tell, but that's an Edison Bulb...I'm surprised I have not been electrocuted yet
it needs new wires for sure!
just across the room is this cute little lamp I have owned for nearly ever
I love cute little lamps like this!
on to the
NEW LIGHTS WE HAVE ADDED SECTION
front entry chandy
sconces in the entry
hot glued shades...ouch!
Frenchy Master Bath Sconces
to match the Frenchy Master Bedroom Chandys
and bedside sconces
(oopsie for the clothes pile getting captured in the photo)
over the tub chandy..watch out tall folks..
this came from Charleston on a summer trip a few years ago
Coach Been's bath shower chandy
he's a fancy coach!
Coach Been's overhead plain old light turned chandy with upside down shade and crystals
guest room sitting area--Pier 1 lamp
I have a hard time staying out of Pier 1 for any item!
I'm beginning to see a pattern here
lamps with fluff, bling, and foofoo
don't be thinking I'm too cool yet
unless...you think this old fixture is cool...you know? It kind of is, now that I think of it!
light your niches ya'll
on to the kitchen...
middle of the night fridge light!
over the island Pottery Barn custom copy
(had to get someone to make it because Pottery Barn light was too long)
fill your demijon with Christmas lights in case your garage is full
pot lights to light your kitchen window
stairway lights to light your path in the dark when you forgot you left your computer on
I love sunlight
streaming in through stain glass
flooding through beveled glass
and exposing fat naked body glass
in summer this view will be so much prettier...hope with me will you?
that's a tuffy!
but I am very very partial to this pair of old purple lead glass and copper sconces
that are original to this house
they are heavy and that lead glass has turned to this wonderful lavender shade over the years of exposure!
at the end of this post I'm still trying to choose
the light I will add to Alison's blog!
And realize how many rooms I didn't take photos in or lamps that I forgot
but one thing I did realize...and that's my favorite most very favorite kind of light in the world
