~ MacKenzie-Child's Lamp ~

Thank you Cindy at My Romantic Home for hosting another fun Show & Tell Friday.
Today I thought you might like to see this table lamp in our living room. The crazy color of the lamp shade dictated the wild wall color of this room. This whimsical, novelty lamp by MacKenzie-Childs is a good size to fit between two chairs in our bay window.
This is the base that has four fantastically painted dogs supporting the lamp. We like the whimsical nature of this lamp with the juxtaposition against our mostly traditional furniture and accessories to personalize our home and give it a more casual fun feel. The grandchildren love it and have had many a tea party on it using my Mother's old pewter tea set for their toy.

Don't you love Cindy's picture that she uses to tag participants in her Show and Tell Friday party? I just think it is so pretty. It reminds me of photos by Toshi Otsuki in the old Victoria magazine.
So, to see more of Show and Tell Friday or join in you might want to stop by My Romantic Home and take a look around.

Thanks for coming by and visiting, it is always good to hear from you.

Hugs,
Sue

  16. Mrs. G,
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your kind words. I did not realize how close we live, we are practically neighbors! I have wanted to visit the MacKenzie-Childs store and Pewabic pottery, but have avoided both since they are in the Big D. However after seeing your fantastic lamp I might have to make the trek. I’ve coveted the MC, black and white checked tea kettle for some time now. Hope you are enjoying your house guests and staying dry in this cats and dog weather.
