My friends are back...a cool lamp...and a giveaway!

After many, many months of not being able to see my followers or stats, I am happy to say that they reappeared today!! I can see all your smiling faces again! I had no idea who many of you were, so welcome! I'll be over to visit soon.

UPDATE: You all disappeared again!! Anyone else having this problem?

Today, I am joining Met Monday with Between Naps on the Porch to share this very unique lamp I won from The Polished Pebble:
She made it from an old toaster and a colander:
I have it displayed in the corner of my kitchen with a few old family photos tucked into the toaster....and beside it is a creamer I bought at GW with an antique cocktail napkin tucked into the handle. This holds some old flatware that I am going to turn into garden markers:
These are photos of my mother, her siblings and my grandmother.
As you can see, the colander is the shade:
Pretty clever, huh? Go visit the Polished Pebble and let her know that you saw it here!
I bought a set of these napkins and a small matching tablecloth at an estate sale last summer. The stitching detail is amazing:


  1. How cute is the colander/toaster lamp! So unique.

  2. Hi Patti, I love how you tucked the photos into the toaster! Great idea....looks so cute in your kitchen

  3. I love this fun and whimsical lamp. Your vignette is very pretty, Patti.

    Have a great week! La

  4. This is one of the best transformations into a lamp that I have seen. So cool!

  5. What a very creative lamp! Looks great in the kitchen with your other goodies.

  6. I super duper love that lamp! I'd love one in my illumination-challenged kitchen -- it would not only shed some light (har har ;-) on my recipes, but actually hold my recipe cards! Love it. Good win by you!

  7. what a clever person you are to think of a lamp like that! Sweetness for sure! thanks for commenting on my blog "Mel's Cabin" and enjoying a cup of coffee with me.

  8. What an awesome and unique lamp! I love it.
