A Shady Story

As in lamp shade shady. While gathering pictures for my Tuesday memes, three different themes, the light bulb in my head lit up. There was a light fixture in every one. So even though the first two pictures were showing RED, as in RED pillows, you know how much I like pillows, they also had a lamp or two. But that a little dog print on that round cushion and a big pooch on the bed pillow? O.K. this is really weird! Fishy! Could be shady business afoot.

Not sure but Ruby Tuesday's RED slippers
could be sticking out from either
the chase or the bed.
Shady business could be responsible
for cutting off the view.
Maybe the dogs will bark if they
see or smell anything.


Now these lamps are the bright creations of
Christine Kilger of NIGHTSHADES
located in Boca Raton, FL.
She has many more than
Three so if these leave you
wanting more...
turn out the lights and head for

To be sure these jewels only get better with age
but that cannot be said for all light fixtures.

I am always looking for new ways to use old,
elements. And here are the perfect
D-I-Y ideas to give globes and vintage fixtures a
Second Time Around

Like Motel 6 the light is on so hope you take the time,
day or night, to visit these sweet ladies and all those
sharing wonderful stories.
Any other shady stories? There's only one way
to find out.

Love the red touches in the room -- especially the dog pillow on the bed. I have that breed of dog!

And the lamps are completely charming -- unique and "shady" in the best possible way. :-)

I thought I left you a comment on this..comp glitch or something. I would love to faint right onto the chaise or the toile bedroom ensemble!! I've been wanting to go to Wimberly for a shopping/fall get-away.
