Finally, a weekend at home. So naturally I decided to clean up. 1/16 of the domicile is now neat and tidy, at this rate I should have things presentable for visitors by about 2019.
This particular wonder of home ownership surfaced from under the desk. I have a number of super ugly, vintage lamps that I inherited when Grandma moved to a home. This is the tamest of them.
Sadly, you can't really see the gold ..er..hairs? filaments? decorative fibres? embedded in the lampshade.
I can't throw it away, it's too hideous not to love.
