Here Kitty, Kitty!



Long ago I went to a little flea market and came across the small metal kitten lamp base and bought it for 3.00. It needed a shade and I ended up having the white shade. The shade was plain and needed some personalizaton. Because the base is brown I thought brown buttons would be great. I have tons of buttons and found some vintage ones and hot glued them on the shade.

The round picture was purchased at an antique store many years ago and it reminds me of my cat when she was a kitten. In front are two little old cat figurines to hang out with the other kitty things.

Little things like these just put a smile in my heart.

Note: Being as I love bagpipe music, I found this "techno version" of one of my favorite songs. It cracked me up!

The brown buttons are very effective! Lamp shades are so fun to play with! I am not a cat person, but those kitties are perfect for me! As for your comment today on my site, maybe we are long lost 10th cousins or something? ;) My dad is from Newport, Wales, the same town Anthony Hopkins was born and raised. I think that makes him and I basically related, don't you think? Love, Esther
