I love lamp. I think.


Well, even if it is a bit of an odd one, I still quite like it. The lampshade was from a charity shop on our last trip up north, and the bottle was in the "hardcore" skip at the recycling centre a couple of weeks ago. I swapped it for some sheets of horrid non-reflective glass that I wanted rid of since I've decided to stop picture framing. Bottle lamp kit was £3 from ebay and hey presto!

I remember my auntie having a bottle lamp when I was little that she'd filled with yellow periwinkle shells like these. I loved it!

Any thoughts on what I should fill mine with? Or leave it empty?

it's lovely! how about beach glass? sure it'd be slow gong but it'd look so pretty. but it looks great anyhow!

p.s. i found lots of periwinkles on my cornish camping trip. they really remind me of childhood too, because of the lovely seaside-y Ladybird book i used to love reading.

Thanks all! I love the beach glass idea Nath, that would be so beautiful but like you say rather slow work... It might be a good excuse for more beach trips though!

Wow I love it!!!
I would leave it empty. I like the kind of minimalistic, clean look of it.

Layers of natural and blue colored sand would look neat.

I love it, too! It's beautifully simple. I love it empty, but it would also look lovely filled with driftwood pebbles.
