These are my all time favorite lamps. I have another one matching this one on the other nightstand. I just really, really, like these lamps. I happened upon these little beauties in my mother-in-law's garage. Let me restate that she is an avid fan of "junkin'". She has spent most of her life shopping at the goodwill and various other "junk stores". For several months I walked past these things wondering why I liked these things so much. I still don't know. I just know that I finally told her how much I admire them every time I walk through her garage (it's the family entrance) I want to take them home with me. She's always willing to give me what she finds if I'm willing to take it off her hands. I DO complain about having too much junk in my house and I attribute it to her bringing me junk all the time. BUT, I just couldn't pass these babies up (I just hate to end my sentence with a preposition - but, it's how I talk).
So, now they are beautifully displayed in my bedroom giving off the best warm light ever. I have had several compliments on them also. I was astonished. I thought I was weird for liking them so much. They have a little button on the base to easily turn the lamps off and on. I wish I could put them in my living room but they won't work with the decor in there. But give me a little time and I will be relocating them somewhere where everyone can see them.
This is a picture I took of the kids one night while we were lounging around in my bedroom basking in the warm light from these great lamps. The warm light made this a great picture opportunity. You can see one of the lamps in the background in the top left of the picture. I still can't believe I actually like these things.
