Photo meme tag ...

I normally don't do tags, but this tag from Monica is a no brainer for me that I decided to play along. ;)

The rule? Go to your 6th photo folder, select the sixth photo and post it. I laughed out loud when this photo came up! A boxer short that was given to my son by one of his buddies. I remember taking picture when he showed it to me...it was funny then and still is funny now.

I am not tagging anyone but please feel free to do the photo meme tag if one so wishes.

Let there be light ...

Ever wonder how many lights you have at home? I went around our house but didn't bother to count them because I know we have more stored away in the barn. Anyways, here is a parade of lamps that brings style and also light dark hallways and rooms in our home.
Below is a maiden art nouveau light. We bought this in Canada; the store had a life- size mermaid floor lamp too which hubby preferred but it was too big and the shipping and handling alone cost an arm and a leg so we settled with this smaller version; height-27" and the "shade" is fan-shaped frosted glass.

Swing-arm desk lamp (maybe an electrical version of a whale oil lamp). I bought it at a moving sale; shade has a perforated hand painted leaf/flower design in pastels.

Very common and casual table lamp.

Part of my milk glass collection... they are not in use.

Glass-base table lamp; if I am not mistaken, my mother-in-law made the shade; she was very much into crafts. Not in use.

Miniature lamp, lost among my plants.

Brass table lamp by the telephone.

Milk glass hurricane style table lamp.

Hurricane table lamp, the top is the main light, bottom is a night light. This is one of my favorites. This is a beautiful antique-style table lamp patterned after classic oil-burning lamps from the Victorian era. The design features blue roses on very light blue tinted glass. Switch controls top as main light and the bottom as night light. I bought it at a yard sale.

... main light.

Another hurricane table lamp with glass base and a ceramic garden jar table lamp...from a moving sale.

Tall table lamp, not so sure but this looks like Kathy Ireland brand. Base is gold finish with yellow faux marble accents. I plan to re-do the shade with black and white toile.

Tall table lamp, set, brass base with interesting design decorated with red tear drop crystals, red velvet shade. Also, a porcelain and an oil table lamps, with hand made shade by my mother-in-law.

...part of the red shade lamp set above.

Wall lights...

Our only floor lamp... an old timer.

Recessed lights.

Tiffany style ceiling lights ...

I can't believe I have all these. Now, you'll probably wonder how many lamps you have yourself.
Have a great day everyone!
