They're tall and when reading in bed you have to really stretch to turn them out -- and after reading to get sleepy you don't need "exercise" before you lay your head down on the pillow.
And this weekend we were in the city . . . and we happened to stop by Tuesday Morning and there was a lamp -- a wonderful lamp -- at a great price -- but it was just a lamp! And I needed two. I bought it anyway and then went on another quest . . . . to find a second.
And at the second Tuesday Morning, there was another. In my hurry to snag the lamp I almost knocked down two ladies who were looking at a different lamp! Sorry!!! But that one was mine!
One for each side of the bed. I like them. They're floral as is the wallpaper but it's tulips rather than roses. But there is a yellow tulip on each as well as a red one which picks up the red of the pillow on the bed.
They have a metal shade which gives a nice downward glow which is great for reading in bed. And the switch is by the base -- no endless reaching to turn off the lamp.
The background of the shade is a soft blue and the tulips appear to be handpainted. The base is dark metal and the "candlesticks" are where the light bulbs go. It's reminds me of a bouillotte lamp and it's Tuesday Morning price tag of $49 certainly seems like a bargain to me for it looks more expensive. (The Tuesday Morning tag said it retailed for $149 each -- so at $49 it certainly was a good buy over retail.)
