In order to get this glass dome and pedestal ~
I had to buy what is called a box lot. I have no idea what I will do with the wooden pieces. Glass domes are scarce as hens teeth and expensive. I bought this whole shebang for $5. ~
I've always wanted an alabaster lamp. My Auntie Kay had one on the bedside table in her spare room and, as a little girl, I thought it was the most elegant lamp I had ever seen. Although I have bought them for my shops, they always sell and one never came home with me.
When I walked in that auction house, the mother of them all was staring me in the face! ~
All eighteen inches of lamp base whispered my name! And then, it shouted my name!
It begged me to look at the glorious detailing. ~
But, it is in the evening when my lamp will take my breath away! ~
