Heading for the light …

07/01/2015 § 3 Comments

Mother Duck has been on a mission to update some of the lamps and lights.  There’s been lots of activity in the kitchen around the ceiling light but I don’t think it’s quite finished yet.  Belle tells me that all the lamps have been moved around indoors and new lampshades seem to have appeared but knowing Mother Duck as I do, I suspect she’s been busy reworking them.  Here’s a sneaky peek …

I heard Mother Duck telling her friend about this lamp – it was brass and cost £2!  Then she spray painted the lamp base and found a bargain silk shade in town.  She’s added dangly, sparkly crystals and some cherry red velvet ric-rac braid to bring it all together.  Looks pretty good alongside her very own Adaliza Patchwork Quilts calendar and a spray painted brass horse.  Nice touch, MD!

Now that’s a classy lampshade if ever I saw one (and I can just see it if I stand on tippy webbed feet and stretch my neck up to peek into the lounge).  The old shade was a dull, cream colour and now it looks a million dollars – well done MD.

And finally …

Well, that is stunning.  What amazing fabric.  I’d quite like a little lamp like that in my duck-house.  I wonder whether, if I quack nicely, she’ll make me one?

Mother Duck says she might pop in to say hello over here, tomorrow.  Maybe that new kitchen light fitting that she’s been working so hard on creating will be ready for photographs.

In the meantime – have a quiet, quacky Thursday.
