Chatter / Re: Vintage Stiffel Lamp
« Last post by Karendee on Today at 02:45:41 AM »
Syndi, your lamp is definitely authentic, to my eye.Several style of the trefoils bases and candle holders were made, as well as the different shades. The cord will look to be excellent quality, the weight heavy, and the brass quite smooth. Of course you can take a magnet along when looking for solid brass lamps. This would be a lamp from the 60-about 80's or even a little later. Even the switch to turn on your lamp will often be on the chord like better lamps. I hope you got a good buy, for you have a lovely tradition Stiffel lamp.

"I'm making Hazelnut soup!!!". I'm watching Disney's "Tangled". I love this movie. Mother Gothel just announced to Rapunzel that she was making her a treat: Hazelnut Soup. Is that a real dish? Well, apparently, it is. It looks like a good cold weather dish, so I plan on giving it a try when the temperatures get chilly:

Becky and Marciae, sending you both repeated hugs for the losses you have sustained recently. You are on my mind and women of strength as I can see. That is not to say that things are easy or without grief for you, but I'm impressed that you havent given up your personalities or zest for life.

Mrs. E that's a good thought. Used to listen to a couple things, but it's been ages. Somehow I forgot how much I enjoyed that. So thank you for giving me a push in the right direction. Now I can add being thankful for your idea.  :laugh:

Dawn, your jacket is really beautiful and elegant just like it is. As others have said, black or brown columns will look wonderful with it. Enjoy your elegant bargain. Wish we could see a pic of it on you.

Marie-Louise, i agree with every word you have said. That is the way i dress, also.

More curtains today.  DH and a friend hung the valances while I was busy pleating the curtain panels and stitching them down.  Had to redo one panel as it got pleated on the wrong side.  Had it been a panel for one of the small windows it would not have mattered but it was for the big window and its mate had already been done.  Tomorrow I spot paint walls and paint the valances while the guys wash windows and install window screens.  Weds we hang the curtains and clean the floor.  There's thread schniblets everywhere.  The only curtains that won't get hung will be the ones to the big closet.  Despite ordering more than I thought I needed, still came up short on the track slides.  I'm sending off another order tonight.  I'm itching to get back to my jackets.
