see mary run.

oh my. i entered the thrift store calmly. i circled the displays nonchalantly. until i laid my beady eye on these! i don't recall what happened next, but i do know that these are safe and sound. here. at my house. aren't they simply lovely?





one bird on each lamp is worth two in the thrift store...or something like that:) i always get my quotes mixed up (wink!)

What a lucky girl you are. Those have to be two of the cutest lamps I've see in a very long time. If I had seen them first, I would have had to fight you for them. The style and colors totally fit in with my shabby chic/cottage style of decorating. I am sooooooooo jealous right now. What kind of lampshades do you think you will use on them?

You don't recall anything that after your spotted these beauties 'cause your subconscious did all of the work. These had to go home with you, and your brain was on autopilot knowing just what to do. ;)

I have a pair just like those. Anyone is lucky to find a pair in mint condition. I believe I found them in the Shawnee Pottery book. I paid over $100 for my pair over ten years ago.
