Red With White Polka Dots!

top of my fridge


Cute little rooster and hen that belonged to my Grandma.


She had them in her kitchen too.



I saw these cute little plastic red with white polka dots lamp shades at a flea market that I went to. I just had to have them. I had the milk glass hobnail lamps already. I thought they went perfectly with the red and white shades. I decided that they needed one more thing to make them even more cute. So I tied black with polka dots ribbons around the shades to finish them off. For now they are sitting on top of my refrigerator in my kitchen. I wanted to have them on the counter tops, but they were too tall. I may relocate them to the office when we get around to renovating that room. They have a really lovely warm glow when I turn them on in the evening.

Love the lamps.... I am a rooster fan and had many of them in my kitchen in Arizona... our house here in Viriginia does not have a large enough kitchen so alas.... had to put some away... *sniff sniff....

Those lamps are adorable, and so is all of your Christmas decorating. Hey, did you ever receive your prize? I hope so!

It's amazing - the shades look exactly like a pair I sold last summer at the Wadena Flea and Craft Market. You’ve coupled them nicely with the hobnob lamps. I am glad they went to a good home!

Hope you can make it back this summer. We open again the first weekend in May. Take care!
