An Old Lamp


As you all know, I love old things.  My mother-in-law gave me this old lamp while we were down helping her move.  It needed a new shade and a little cleaning.  Grace cleaned it for me and we are on the lookout for a shade that will do it honor.   I have it on top of my treadle sewing machine for now. 

We are getting some much needed rain here today.  I understand we are about 4 in. below normal on our water level.  It seems very cozy, the rain on the tin roof, a warm fire.   I think I need to light some candles to make it even cozier.

We are working on school today.  Also cleaning house.  The ladies will be coming tomorrow for bible study.  Tomorrow will be our last lesson in this study, “Women who believed God”.  It has been a good study.  Tonight’s menu is sloppy joes, french fries, green beans and a peach pie with homemade whipped creme for dessert.  YUM!

I hope you all have wonderful day and God bless.

P.S.  In answer to the question about what sassafras tea tastes like, it resembles a root beer or birch beer taste.  You can drink it hot or cold.  We prefer hot but it is good cold.

  1. That is a beautiful lamp! I love hand me down items and old things as well. I will take them any day over something brand new off the store shelf. I hope you have a great ladies meeting tomorrow. Your supper does sound yum! The peach pie sounds extra delicious! Have a great day today 🙂


  2. That is a beautiful lamp. I love the design on it. I hope that you can find a shade for it. Supper sounds delicious. We are having fish again tonight.

    Have a great day and stay warm. I am enjoying our heat from the stoves.



  3. That lamp is so pretty. It would be really neat to find an antique shade for it.

    The rain is really helping. Our yard is already starting to green up.

    I hope you get some rain! We are right in the thick of the rain storms the past couple of days. I wouldn’t mind some sunshine. 😉
