Random Lighting

Today I wanted to do a blog on meccano.  I had images of meccano handbags and things...  but sadly the people of Etsy have let me down this time and there just isn't enough meccano on there to fill a blog. Fortunately I did see the amazing meccano lamp featured here which set me looking at all the other weird and wonderful lamps available.  A lot of these lamps are from the USA so some of the postage prices are very high (just thought I should warn you).

Mustard Thermos Table Lamp by Lampified
£64.79 (+ £11.77 p&p)
This modern-meets-victoriana table lamp is made with a mustard yellow, vintage plastic Thermos that’s in great condition. The octagonal wooden base was found at a thrift store and refinished by hand, so it has a deep brown, satiny glow. The bell lampshade is brand new and complements the base nicely with its geometric shape, and its chocolate-brown piping detail around the edge. The overall style of the lamp is an attractive blend of classic ‘70s vintage and victorian/bohemian chic - makes for a cheerful, warm addition to a wide range of interiors.
