Long ago Mr. SP rescued this lamp from Granddaddy’s shed a gave it a face-lift. I’m sure that Granddaddy bought it at an auction and intended to do the same thing. For years I’ve looked for a shade for it with no luck. This beauty needed just the right shade for her special curves.
You might remember it from one of Amanda’s Decorating Dilemma parties from last year. I received some great suggestions from the party participants but never did find the perfect solution until recently.
This lady has a new hat and is strutting her stuff! A very nice Mennonite couple who run a lamp shop in the Dayton Farmer’s market helped me to find a shade from one of their catalogs. They are very knowledgeable and knew the type of shade that this lamp originally had. This lamp isn’t for everyone but I like it.
We keep jokingly referring to this lamp as “the cat house” lamp now that it has its fringe adorned shade. Meow!
