Last week, my mom and her sister traveled from Kansas to North Carolina to visit. A round trip of 2997 miles for these 69 and 68 year old blue heads. We had a wonderful time and they loved our "falling down around our ears" home.
Carefully wrapped and safely tucked in the trunk of Mom's car were a pair of lamps that were once my Grandma Lawhon's. My earliest memories of my grandma include these lamps that flanked her sofa. They held such a fascination for me and I would spend a lot of time sitting on Grandma's sofa looking at and petting these lamps.
I was so excited when Mom said she was bringing these lamps that have been tucked in her attic for many years. Now they are mine! For the time being, they sit on a table in the upstairs hallway. Some day soon, they will be the lamps on the bedside tables in our master suite. Click on each picture to enlarge it so you can see the wonderful detail on these lamps.
Don't they look like they could grant you a wish if you rubbed them?
There are no markings on these lamps and I have never seen any like them. Knowing my grandma, she probably found them in her favorite thrift store back in the early 50's.
It has been a couple of weeks since I have participated in Vintage Thingies Thursday hosted by Suzanne at Coloradolady. I have missed all my friends and their wonderful vintage, antique and retro items. Why not click here and follow me to see what they are sharing this week?
