Let There Be Light.......

  Sorry about the dates on the pictures, I haven't used this camera in a long time and didn't know the date was on there and it's not even the right date!  Hopefully I will be able to figure out how to get it off!

I'm parting at:

Till next time......

Like I said, you are the "negotiator". Love the little rooster lamp.

I have a thing for lamps and buy them all the time. I love all your shades especially. The Mid Century Modern lamp is my favorite.

It's amazing what you can do with a yard sale lamp, a can of paint, and a new shade. Yours are all great!
Thanks for sharing your light story at Treasure Hunt Thursday.
