Crystal lamps

I have always had an attraction to crystal, I imagine that everyone else does too although that is probably not the case. When I was in my teens I had a small collection of crystal pendants that I loved to hang from a sunny window with fish line.  The prism effect and the sparkly flickering rainbow colours never lost their charm. Just love crystal.
So it was very uplifting to have discovered these lamps on sale at HomeSense recently, they were 50% off. Such a deal and I did not mind that I could not find a matching pair amongst the sale items. I simply purchased new matching lampshades for all three.

The big chunky lamp below is definitely my favourite. It is sooo heavy to lift, it must weigh at least 20 lbs! but isn't it beautiful?   It has a mid 20th century vibe to it, I think they all do.
The crystal really channels the light as well as these cheerful hydrangeas. Last but not least is the lamp that hub likes the best, probably cuz it is less sparkly and has more metal ,,, it still sparkles!

I stumbled randomly on your blog and find the crystal lamp really very beautiful. Are you sure that these weigh 20 pounds? I find it somehow difficult to imagine. Despite everything, I immediately next to the lamp, he noticed the quilt is very pretty. I wish you a very good week. Many greetings from Germany Anni

Hi Anni from Germany, greetings from Canada!
I would love it if you visited me often; I only write about simple everyday things and if you have a blog I will visit it as well.
