A Perfect Marriage...


That's what you're looking at right here....



So I already had this awesome lamp base, procured at the legendary Hoarders Estate Sale.
Sorta Roman, sorta Grecian, sorta wonderful.



But it needed a mate.
And you know how hard it is to find the right mate these days, dontcha?
And not just any mate would do, nope. These gals weren't gonna settle for Mr. Right Now, they were holdin' out for Mr. Right.



Habitat for Humanity Re-Store to the rescue!
I spied with my little eye a lonely lamp perched high upon a shelf, and I instantly knew that I had found the perfect shade!




Mr. Twig re-wired this little beauty for me the other day, so not only is it beautiful, it's also safe and fully functional.



Available in mine and Effie's space in Bar W Field during Antique Week!

You get a lamp shade and Habitat for Humanity makes a few dollars. Win-win. Gotta love it!

Anne, you are a regular Emma! (I'm actually watching it now as I blog.) You've made a perfect match! They will be snatched up in no time and I know you will make more perfect matches in the future.
TTFN,

Very cool! I went to Habitat for Humanity in Olympia over the weekend and bought enough wood for three new (ish) raised bed gardens for only $7.oo!!!!! I was thrilled until I found out my screws were not long enough and had to buy a box at $7.00. Oh well, $14 is cheap for three 6.5 x39" boxes. I love HFH
