chick lit

Each week, I make my trek to the local library and nearby "Second Hand" shop to see what might peak my inner chic. I found these wonderful lamps that I immediately thought of her.
So, I rang her and told her that I thought of her and she said, oh, yes, send them my way.
I can only imagine the chic shade that will be added to top off these little gems. The base would be lovely painted a high gloss blue or orange. They would be sweet on a book shelf or a slim entry table. Albert Hadley thinks that overhead lighting is a "tragedy." I would have to agree that small lamps are so chic.

I brought them home, cleaned them up and the will soon be here.

You can go shopping for me any time. They are fabulous. My mind is spinning as to what glorious shades to make for them.

I love ginger jar lamps! And how funny, I was scrolling through my reader and assumed that this was a Shandell's post.
