Lighten Up!

 Happy Weekend!  Time is hurtling us on so fast towards Christmas and until I can put up the twinkling Christmas lights, I thought I'd share five of my favourite lamps that light up my home.

1. This is a tart warmer as well as a lamp and you will notice stars feature quite a lot around my home!



I love the smell of these cute little tart melts, a mix of cinnamon and Christmas spices!


2. This is on my hall table, a double black prim lamp

 - simple lines, and so lovely!

3. Just to mix things up a bit, I recently bought this sweet little ceramic candle holder and use a battery operated candle inside.  It goes nicely in our newly redecorated living room.



4. More starry lamps this time a glass fronted rusty red lamp.



Its so pretty to see the stars on the walls


 5. Oh look, more stars on this lamp shade again punched tin on a wrought iron stand.  Its at a good height over my rocking chair, where I can sit and read or sew.


 Lovely to bask in its soft glow...



It's definitely wintry here tonight so the glow of the lamps make home all the more cozy and inviting.

Glad you came by and hope you enjoy the warmth!



Be sure to call over and see more Five on Friday.


Best wishes

  3. I love all of your lamps. Now I need to remember where on earth I put my candle warmer like yours. I put it up when the kids were teenagers??? because they kept putting their fingers in the wax. :) Maybe I could use it again. Now that they are grown.
    All of your lights are lovely. So warm and inviting. Have a lovely weekend.

  16. Hi Christine,
    I am visiting you from Amy's Five on Friday. I love your tart warmer - never heard of one before - but what a clever idea! I have enjoyed seeing your pretty lamps, they certainly must give a nice warm feeling to your house on these dark wintery nights.

  17. Your lamps are all beautiful, so pretty to see them lit up. I love sitting with the glow of low lamps and candles, does give that lovely glow and with these new candles that are on timers so you don't have to worry about remembering to blow them out or turn them off are wonderful. I have a black tin one that I purchased many years ago, but mine has a pineapple design in it.
    hope your enjoying a great weekend.
