Mid-Century Lamps …Floral Friday

Doing some fall housekeeping put me in the mood to deep clean some lamps this week. These lamps have a lot of ridges and details, so a dusting tool or cloth wouldn’t do. Also, each one had deteriorating displays of faux flowers within planter wells.

A small mid-century modern lamp made by an unknown to me manufacturer features a molded, one-piece plastic housing and shade. It contains a selection of whimsical blooms to compliment the lamp’s theme.


A little green panther TV-lamp from the early 1950s has been used as an accent lamp in the living room for several years. I refreshed the tiny blooms with some that contrast and some that compliment the container’s glaze color.

The black deer lamp features a generous well. As my bedside lamp, it had been utilized as a catch-all for small miscellaneous items. I decided to use the well for its original purpose. It now contains a mid-century inspired arrangement that compliments the leaping deer and the red Venetian shade.

The Blue Jay of Happiness contemplates a saying from 20th century physician and writer, Louis-Ferdinand Céline. “Experience is a dim lamp, which only lights the one who bears it.”

    Does anyone know how I can revert to Classic Editing? I received a rude surprise this morning with a new default editor. I’ve been up and down the help topics. argh!

    I don’t know if it’s the same for everyone but I went to an edit post page, clicked on the three dots in upper right and clicked on go to classic editor.

      Yes. I did that, but it still comes up with the new editor. There is a download for the classic which I downloaded but there is no “install” function. I guess I’ll be working on learning the new editor during breaks in my retreat. Thanks.
