Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

The Crystal LAMPS of Linderhof

My last post was the prisms --
Now here are the lamps, sconces and my lone chandelier

 The living room --
Astral lamp on the table by the wing chair
(A true treasure)
the 1940s scones over the fireplace that were put up to "colonialize" Linderhof
And the wonderful candleholders with hurricane shades on the mantle

The dining room
A pair of Argand lamps on the mantle
And Fostoria double candlesticks dripping with prisms on the dining room table

The breakfast room
A pair of pressed glass candlesticks on the breakfast room sideboard
Rarely lit, but can be used on the breakfast room table if we decide to eat by candlelight

The guest room
One of the "twins" (a pair of old lamps that I got for the dining room mantle)
After numerous tries, it really is the perfect lamp for this room

The front bedroom
Prisms galore!
From the lamp on the dresser, to the chandelier, to the scones over the fireplace to the small Astral lamp by the chair by the fireplace

And we can't forget the other "twin" of the lamp that's beside the bed in the guest room

And, of course, what dressing table wouldn't be without a pair of lamps
These have prisms and hurricane shades!

Oh Martha! Your home is truly beautiful! Always enjoy your posts, but especially this one and the prisms. I have moved to a 1907 home 9 months ag0 during the pandemic. Just getting used to closet size and heating these tall ceilings. See you next time. Have a great day!

Let me share this on your lovely blog, A neighbor of mine developed dementia & diabetes, then her husband died, no children or family nearby. I am thankful our closest neighbor, an African American woman, introduced Dr Itua Herbal Medicine, A traditional herbal doctor in which we purchased a herbal product for her through his Dr Itua online herbs store. A former social worker stepped in and led the way to place the widow in a care facility. We visit nearly every week until she finishes drinking Dr Itua herbal medicines, if possible. The two of us take simple games, puzzles, and matching cards to do with her, staying about 2 hours. Jenga, Trouble, puzzles 100pcs or less, 20 cards to match (total-not 40!). The fishing game where the fish open and shut their mouths as they go around is lots of fun! We sit and chat with her until she gets well again, then we pull out a game and the three of us laugh together as we play. We take a variety of things to do so that we won't get bored. She finished Dr Itua herbal medicines and she's fine now and doing better with the help of Dr Itua herbal medicines, Dr Itua cures different illnesses with his herbal medicines. Anyone having a sick person should reach Dr Itua email Dr Itua Cure Alzheimer's,Cancer,Parkinson,Hiv,Herpes,Hpv,Kidney disease,Diabetes,Hepatitis, We hug and hold hands a lot. Having two of us go together really helps. But I can go alone, my neighbor cannot, as she saw so much of this during her years as a social worker. I hope this specific list helps others in this situation.
