Lamp Love: a classy mid-mod pair

From Old Lighting Spot on Etsy. Here's the link to these gorgeous babes, here.
This week's lamp love affair is with these two black ceramic and tiled lamps from Old Lighting Spot, an Etsy seller. While these don't fit into my home's decor at all, I love the evening dress black and gold and the sophisticated look. They'd be great for those who've got a Hollywood Regency decor thang going on. I love the tableaux that the seller has put together: great ideas for staging these great lamps. The shades don't come with, but they look silver, and that's another great idea too. Very classy!


  1. I just found your blog via DIY Diva, and I just want to let you know that you CAN do it. I'm a single Mom too, and when I was raising my two kids, we worked on several "distressed" houses (kind words) that remind me of your plumbing travails. Can you say "former homeowner who was too cheap to buy electrical wire, so patched together little pieces with wire nuts and strung them inside the walls."?? So hang in there, and remember to sit back and enjoy your progress so far once in awhile. Your kids will have fun learning how to fix things, and it will all get done eventually, so don't sweat it. Take care.

    1. Gayle, bless you to pieces. Really, I was having one of those single mom days where everything was feeling overwhelming and then this comment popped into my email. It got my chin back up, and made my day. Thank you!

    2. You are most welcome! Anyone who takes this sort of project on deserves a medal, so pour yourself a drink, take several deep breaths, and it will be better in the morning. If you lived in Oregon, I'd take you out for a drink and a chat. Take care.
