I've been working on these lamps for ages. Between rewiring, purchasing lampshades and finding the lovely trim, it took much longer than it should have. I'm so happy with the turquoise lamp. I just love it. I think it's so warm and cozy. And the white lamp, well I like each individual part (lamp + lampshade) of it but in this case, the whole is not greater than the sum of the parts. The shade seems a bit too short for the lamp and it took me taking photographs and seeing the photos to really grasp that. In the meantime, if anyone wants to purchase this guy, you can buy just the lamp (newly rewired!), for $50 and if you like the shade too, I can do it for $75 altogether. Or if you just like the shade for another lamp, I'll sell it to you for $30 (contact me for dimensions). The trim is a really pretty orange and white Liberty of London fabric.
I also still have the other items I promised from earlier this week...or maybe it was last week. It looks like there might be some sun today, so hopefully today's the day! Things really have stalled around here due to more kiddie illness, scheduled and non-scheduled school cancellations, plus the lack of sun lately.
Oh, and if you want to follow Urban Tastes on Facebook, I'd be thrilled! I desperately begged people for more followers over the weekend and am now over 100! I'd love some more though. Facebook would be the best place to find out about any specials or giveaways we're having. And I generally updated Facebook when I've added more items for sale to the site. Basically, I'm much better at it than Twitter which I've more or less abandoned.
Lastly, I just decided on a whim, to do a pillow sale. All the pillows have been marked down $5 and the green chevron, $10.
