While we are waiting for the house contract to go unconditional I'm filling my time with the usual activities ... thrifting, secondhand shops and ebay. Just won these cool vintage eyeball table lamps for a bargain price. (Photos are from the seller's site.) Great I thought. I have had a couple of these over the years and thought this pair would be great as bedside lamps. I have, of course, had the small versions, no more than 30cm high. These are huge. 70cm. Who was the dumb bunny who didn't read the dimensions on ebay? I never do. What a pleasant surprise when I realised my mistake. I love them and they will be perfect either side of the bed. Thinking I might have them sprayed another colour but I'll wait till we move in. I have a suzani in earthy tones for a bedspread and the beige might just be OK.
