Rosy Glow

I have been busy trying to find my house as I remove my Christmas decor. Why is it you find things after everything is supposed to be put away? Of course I'm in my I need a change mood trying to redo things as I go. Could be why it takes me forever!
I decided to touch up my mantle by adding this pair of lights. I had them just sitting around and never could decide where to put them. The banquet light is my hubbies pride. He insists it needs to stay here since it is so tall for fear of it being bumped and broke.

 We bought these lights at an auction and discovered when we got home upon further investigation one shade was cracked. So after searching on eBay we found replacement shades. What luck!

 Even the base of the lights have etchings.

 I love the way they give off a rosy glow when lit.

 I can't wait till spring when I get to remove this ugly paneling and add my wallpaper!

 Now all I need to do is find a doily to put under and it will satisfy me for awhile. That will be another project.

  1. Just love those lamps! To Die for!!
    I painted the paneling that was out in our den....


  2. I enjoyed seeing your different lights. I really like the red shade one.

  3. These are beautiful. I don't believe I have ever seen any with the shades in red. So lovely. Happy VTT!

  4. The lamps, although not at all my style, are beautiful. I like the red shades.

  5. I love the glow that the red gives off- makes a room cozy on a cold winter night! You've got a lovely vignette set up on your mantel! Happy VTT!

  6. Oh this is so beautiful!! I love the warm glow and the warmth of the look it provides.

  7. So glad you were able to find the replacement shade for your lamp, Terry. Some years back, we had a severe ice storm and lost power for a week. So, we decided to put all our vintage oil lamps to good use. Unfortunately, it was so cold that when we lit our favorite antique lamp, the pink glass shade cracked. And I still haven't found a replacement. :(

    Thanks for linking to the party.
