Cherub Lamp

I was recently given this lovely cherub/angel lamp.  I'm tempted to remove the lamp part and just mount the angels on a big chunky block of wood.  I'll leave it like this for a while though and see how I feel in a month or so.


Normally I'm not a fan of angels and cherubs - actually cherubs freak me out a little but these two have such sweet faces. I often find that cherubs look a bit sinister (especially for something that's meant to be angelic).


 
I've put them on this sideboard in my study area for the time being.  (And yes I know that the frames aren't hanging straight).


I've had a lovely day. My dad came over (from 2 hours away in traffic) to take me supermarket shopping and also to Bunnings (hardware).  I am still not driving and have been doing my weekly shop by walking 30 mins to the supermarket and then catching a taxi home with all the groceries. So it was nice to do it the easy way. He also took me to lunch, lovely to spend some time with him.

And I have finally worked out what colour my house trim actually is. Dulux North Sea Blue.  I'll be repainting the front door tomorrow!

  1. Hi Fiona, I think your cherub lamp is very cute and would look even better with a more vintage shade I reckon. I spent the day with my dad too, he helped me re-stock the shop today which was great. Very nice of your dad to drive all that way to take you shopping. Hope the arm is not too painful. Sandy xx
