Now, I know what you're saying - not another light!
Well, yes, it's half a lampshade base but I bought it at the local 'Vinnie's' (aka Aussie speak for St. Vincent de Paul) charity shop for only $10 and it's Laura Ashley. Only went in because the kiddies wanted to fossick and see what they could spend their pocket money on and we all came out happy.
So, I have plans for this base. It will be the bedside light for one of the bedrooms up at the bach.
