An old fashioned lamp


It is icy here today but we are hoping that it melts by lunch since today is one of our roller skating days with the home school group.
I wanted to share a pic of a treasure I picked up this week at a local shop that is going out of business. I love the old fashioned look but the ease of the electric cord. I have it in the bathroom for now but I think I will be moving it to the mantle as soon as the snowmen are put away.
It has been quiet here now that my mother has gone back to Florida....we found out that her brother pased away yesterday, he had been quite ill and was the reason she had come to Ohio to begin with. I'm sure she will not be returning to Ohio for the burial because she needs to rest after her two surgeries.
Have a great Friday.
