The Lamp Post

This is my favorite lamp.

It is made of teak and amber, spaghetti glass.

Probably Danish.

Probably mid-twentieth century.

It has an inline switch.

I prefer to leave the lights on.

Like it or not, it comes with me.

I can't see anything.

On Trav's post Tag! You Are It! , he is making us do the following:

* TAG YOU ARE IT! *

The first player of this game starts with and shares "6 weird/things/habits/oddities about yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a blog sharing THEIR 6 weird habits/things/oddities.

At the end you need to choose the 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their latest blog post and tell them to read yours.

And you are one of my peepz.

So you gotta do it…

Only six weird things? You gotta be kidding me. LOL

Wait a minute....why do you think I'm weird?

exanimate:
1. Destitute of animation; spiritless; disheartened.
2. To deprive of animation or of life.

Are you really? ... do you even know I wrote a post awhile back inspired by you? If you have not seen it, you should... its about smiling.

By the way, I love the lamp, great design looks like a nice soft light, like the candlelight I prefer for being close.

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

spinmedown replies on 3/29/2006 4:52 pm:
The quality of the light is perfect. Thank you for thinking of that.

Yes. Exanimate. Like something dusty and forgotten on the shelf of an antique store, waiting for someone to notice, appreciate and give it purpose again.

Spin... are you refering to yourself or the lamp as exanimate? Quite frankly, neither you nor the lamp seem to be lifeless or lacking in spririt. It's a nice piece. I love teak... ~aries

spinmedown replies on 3/29/2006 4:56 pm:
It all depends on how long of an extension cord I can find.

Cool lamp..very collectible right now as this style of vintage furniture if very "in".

Yeah I had my own lamp too. It was an orignal fifties deco desk lamp; I said it was staying with me too. It ended up in the heap of my broken dreams so long ago.

I see reproductions all the time now, but it just hurts too much to remember... I could reall fancy a lamp like that one though!

I love everything Art Deco, Art Noveau and Danish Modern.

Would love to find someone who loved the same- preferably female.

Every female I know lives in some kinda Laura Ashley Hell Nightmare.

Your right, Spinner. That's 1960's Danish for sure. But it ain't a lamp - it's a nutcracker.

Don't you need a front office in order to also have a back office?

This is where decorating confuses me.
And why do people have fully furnished dining rooms that they never use?
And why do people put shutters on double windows?

I'm gonna go live in a yurt.

Been a while since they last let me out into polite society. Resurfacing, catching a breath, & catching up.



And while I got my Broad-Brimmed Pimping Hat on, could I cajole all of y'all to Comment on, Alone In A Cloud? It's probably the best thing that I've written!
