Carolyn


























Click on the pix to enlarge........


I found this and it reminded me of Carolyn over at Cranberry Crossing. It's a little lamp and the little jug is about a foot tall. My mother in law used to have one of these things, hers wasn't a lamp ;), and it was large and she used it to can her sweet pickles in. I KNOW what the thing is called but right now the old brains not wanting to work for me. lol Anyway I thought I would share some pix of it with you all. I found it at my favorite bargain store. :)

The pineapple on is dates it I guess but I thought it was really cute so I bought it. It doesn't fit my decor but I thought it was cute non the less. Got plans for it. ;) It didn't have a shade on it and I do wish it did because I'm not a prim decorator and I have NO IDEA what kind of shade would look well on it.

Then last but not least is this rooster tea pot. I also have plans for it later on. It's been mine for a pretty good little while now but soon I think I will be getting rid of it. The rooster teapot isn't a lamp. That's the lamp I posted pix above of in the background of the rooster teapot.
Yes indeed CROCK is the word I was looking for Daff! Thank you! COULD NOT think of that word to save my neck!

I love the lamp! The pineapple is a symbol of hospitality that never goes out of style! :) How sweet of you to think of me!

About the shade, almost anything would work, white, of-white, ivory, tea-stained, or even blue or blue checks. When I have to buy new sahdes, I will paint dark coffee on them with a sponge brush to darker them up a little. I don't really care for pristine white in my home. If you try this, make sure you don't get the trim and edges too wet. Some of them are glued together and they will fall apart. I learned this the hard way!

Or you could paint a shade in the color of your choosing.

My Mama collected roosters and there is one in her collection that looks a lot like your's. My older sister got the roosters. I didn't have room for them anyway, so it's all good.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Great finds! Is "crock" the word you're looking for? ; ) I hate it when I can't bring a certain word to mind. Old age...
