Arabians and the lamp!


No, I am not talking about Aladdin!  This morning I had to take some pictures of the beautiful Arabian across the street from my house, as they were close to the fence on our side of the large pasture! It was such a beautiful morning.  

That is my border collie out there having some fun!  NOW FOR THE LAMP PART OF THE POST!
I found this interesting old lamp at a garage sale a while back.  I thought it had a cool very French Scrolly design to it, so I brought it home and the other day turned it into this. . . . . . . .
 I used my favorite spray paint which is "Hammered Iron"  from Rustoleum.
 And the bonus is that there is a light in the glass base.
I love the base.

That's a beautiful lamp, Michele! I think your makeover suits it much better than how it looked before.

I noticed your horse while I was visiting my sweet friend Marcia's blog. She is beautiful. I love the lamp too. It does look French looking, and very lovely. You did a nice job spray painting it.
