WoW!! And This little Light of Mine!


I am thrilled to bits to find today that I have now 3oo yes 300! followers! Thank you all so much for
your interest, prayers, support and love!
And do you know what?


So in honor of this, I'm going to have a drawing for a surprise giveaway for my friends - all you need to do is leave a comment on this post, be a follower of my blog and your in!
Please don't post about it though, as I want to honor my faithful friends who visit regularly.

Now to the other part of my post which is all about my love/ obsession with lamps and lighting.

Ever since my husband and I set up home together, I was always on the look out for interesting lamps and lampshades for our home as I think they make a home cozy and inviting.
So when I fell in love with prim decor, I immediately started to look for lamps and as you know, there's no shortage of gorgeous prim light fixtures etc.
My only problem is that here in the UK, we use more voltage so I am having to buy lots of adapters or if I had ceiling fixtures I'd need an electrician! :-(

But little flickering battery operated candles are very effective and I love their glow~

This little lamplighter has very romantic memories for us as we got it on honeymoon!

But my favorite lamps have to be tin punched lamps! I had never come across them before but it was love at first sight! lol!

I specially love the pattern they cast on the wall behind.

And as you can probably tell I also love stars!
I only managed to get one stitchery finished this week so far another freebie from Primitive Betty's for Valentine's.

Thanks again for visiting and don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in my surprise giveaway!
Blessings and hugs


  1. I love the punched tin lighting as well, it just feels so warm. Thanks for sharing your pictures

  2. Christine,
    Prim lighting is warm and cozy. I love it. And punched tin is a fav. I have the same little tin star shade and love the pattern that softly shadows the living room walls. Congrats on 300+ followers.

  3. Congratulations on reaching 300 followers! I love lights glowing around the house. Most of our outlets are behind hard to move pieces of furniture. :( So my solution was oil lamps. I love the ones with the long bases. It is so fun to collect things. :) Best Wishes!
