See the spaces where the pretty broken butter color antique glass used to be.







See the spaces where the pretty broken butter color yellow antique glass used to be...again...in case you missed it.








See the picture of The Hub crying because he broke the pretty antique lamp with the pretty butter color antique glass. Oh wait...I don't have a picture of that.

Oh, no. Poor you. Poor hub! That was such a pretty lamp. Maybe you can use the broken bits in a mosaic and give them a new life? Just a thought.
I don't envy you with your house all torn apart like that. Hope that you can get it back to rights before the summer really gets here!

Oh, dear. I have a lamp that is very fragile. I have contemplated rearranging the living room but it would put the lamp in harms way, so it sits in the corner. I would absolutely faint if something like this happened to it.

Put hubby back on the rack. (sorry Sandi).
