this is my new lamp with its shade, its not the original fabric i chose, which as it turned out the pattern ran the wrong way, so i HAd to buy new fabric - what a pity. so the original linen bird print is to be a cushion. i must admit i have a bit of an orange crush thing goin on at the moment. my home decor used to be greens now it all seems to be reds & oranges. in the world of chakra therapy- this would say that instead of being in tune with my heart (green) i am now more into the base & sacral chakras of reds & oranges. which would suggest that i am needing be grounded!
