An idea hit me today that I would LOVE to install in Jasmine-Anita’s room. I’d like to line small white animal lamps with identical red lampshades on a deep picture-rail-height ledge.
Have you noticed that there’s been a plethora of animal lamps in the market of late?
I think my fave is the fox. My least fave is the black pitbull doing a dump.
But since each animal I’ve seen in Australian stores is about AUD$150 each, I’ll settle for one lamp. And I’ve been thinking the best animal to reflect Jasmine-Anita is a monkey lamp. As she turns 1, her personality is more evident. The girl is going to be one cheeky girl! She gets this mischievous-cheeky-what-can-I-get-my-hands-on-next look that is so gorgeous to see (of course, I can say that because she isn’t walking yet!).
There are some gorgeous monkey lamps around:
My favourite of the above is No. 3. Crate and Barrel now ship to Australia but with electrical items, you’ve got to be so careful.
Oh to find a vintage monkey lamp one of these days!
Failing a monkey lamp (which I haven’t been able to find in Australia), the fox lamp could be cute too…
