The heat has finally lessened a little and the grass is turning green again from the rain. There's kind of a hint of fall in the air. It's been so dry here that our leaves are even falling prematurely. It's just been a difficult summer, weatherwise, & we're hoping for a long, slow autumn.
My latest project is trying to make lamps. If I'm going to make shades then I need lamps to go with them. Personally, I have a difficult time finding lamps that I really like. This is a wonderful old architectural piece I found. I'm thinkin' it would be a really cool lamp. What do you think? And if I do, would it bother you if the cord comes out the top or should I have a hole drilled through the center to run the cord?
I've also tried to find a bunch of candlesticks to use with my candles I sell at Leola's. All of a sudden mine have sold & with a new shipment of candles just in, I needed replacements. Trying to decide rather to paint these or leave them "as is". I'm thinkin' they would be great all black.
Love this German bread board. I found it on my last trip to Iowa in the Amana Colonies. Bread boards are one of the things I collect and it's difficult to find one at a really good price. This one was a real bargain.....I think the woman knew it was going to a good home.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. It's supposed to be cooler here so maybe I'll get something accomplished.
