You Light Up My Life

Not long ago I found a new blog that soon became a favorite of mine. Marilyn lives in my state, not far from some of our family. One of these days we hope to meet when my sweetheart and I visit our family. In the meantime we read each other's blogs and often comment and email.

Marilyn makes the most wonderful lampshades, often using vintage materials. I enjoy seeing pictures of her beautiful work. She recently announced a give-away and I didn't waste a minute signing up. This morning she announced the winner. It's ME!! And here is what I won.To read more details, check here. This little lamp is just perfect for me! The man is playing a violin and the lady is holding flowers. Now you already know I love flowers. But did you know I took violin lessons for a few years? I'm sure you can imagine why I am thrilled to win this sweet little lamp. What makes it so special is that it is one of Marilyn's fantastic creations. The lace and buttons and every part of the shade are just perfect. Just like she made specially for me. (I think she did!)

I have a special place in mind for this new treasure. When it arrives and is in place I'll share it with you. You can be sure I can't wait for you to see it!

  12. Adrienne, I didn't know you played the violen, So I am glad you are the winner! It will mean so much to you! But guess what; my husbands mother played the violen also, in fact back in her youth she had played on the radio and I still have some of the nice letters she received from people who heard her recital! It sure is a small world! I'm so happy that you like my lamp too, I always thought it was a sweet little thing!
    You are a special lady Adrienne! Congratulations!
