I love milk glass items and lamps.
I saw this sweet little lamp in a consignment store on a back shelf covered in dust.
This lamp was probably produced in the 1950's.
I couldn't leave her there, so I brought her home with me.
(My sweet husband could not believe I would spend money on her!!)
At first, she didn't want to light up....
So, I took apart the top and discovered one of her wires had come loose.
I tightened it up and she works very well.
She just needed a little TLC!
I put her on my kitchen counter since I needed extra light in there and I don't like to use the overhead lights because it heats up the room. And, who needs extra heat when it is 107 outside?!!!
I still thought she was missing something.
So, I got out my glue gun and trim - more on that later.
I also wanted to hide her cord - it was not very pretty to look at and much too long for the counter.
I made a cord cozy for her.
I took a piece of cloth 4 inches wide (twice as long as I needed so it would ruffle).
I sewed it up, turned it inside out and put it on the cord.
I also tied the cord with yarn to make the cord shorter.
And, here she is!
Trim on her lampshade and a nice cozy for her cord!
She is very happy right now!!
Thanks for dropping by!!
