Monday? Really? I must be caught in some time-warp thing. I don't even know where the weekend went. Maybe it was all the fat I ate during the Super Bowl party. Slowed my brain to a crawl.
So what is this thing anyway? It is part of the recipe for one of those Strange Notions thats starts whirling around in my head when I should be doing something constructive.
Believe it or not, I bought this ugliest lamp in America (or maybe the world) to get that Bakelite socket off the top. All the way to the checkstand, I told anyone who would listen (and some that didn't care) that I was just buying it for the socket. They looked at me funny.
Here's another little hint. I had to do the same thing when I bought this a couple weeks ago. It was covered with the most gawd-awful red and white lace boudoir hooker shade that it was embarassing to buy it. Seeing things for what they CAN be is one of my talents. Maybe. Time will tell.
I mentioned the trip to Rejuvination Hardware for the special must-have light bulb to make my dreams come true.
I thought I couldn't buy a new harp that would fit the vision so I bought one off eBay (which hasn't arrived yet) and then what to my wondering eyes did appear at the VOA?? I love choices.
I might use these...
Or maybe some of these. That's all for today. I'm back down the rabbit hole.
