Lamp Baubles...

Is there anything that you "do" that you don't even realize?  The other day a friend was over and she noticed my little lamp baubles...and she was "smitten".  I guess I was surprised...I guess I never really thought they were a big deal.  Kind of like putting on my earrings after I fix my hair, you know?  It's something I do.  It hadn't occured to me to post about it...but then I looked around my house and noticed quite a few of my lamps and fixtures have their "accessories" I decided to share them with you...

These were the ones my friend Shannon really loved.  Just some assorted trinkets hanging over the shade on an S hook...

You might remember these little junk goodies from my FUSSY CHRISTMAS MANTEL garland...anybody know what they are???  I have no idea, I just thought they were cool...rust, numbers, perfectly "aged".  What's not to love :)

Another a little sparkle too.

And then there's this one...can you tell what that is?

An egg yolk separater and a little twine...

...and there you go.  This naked lampshade got a little more "modest".

Or how about a little seam binding and a couple of birdies?

And you are probably sick and tired of this blingy fixture by my front door.
(If not, you can see the rest of the post HERE :)

But have you seen my "P'd" fixture in the stairway?

And then I noticed this sad little fruit basket fixture in my accessories...can you believe it?

A quick couple of flash cards will fix that...for now :)

So there you have little lamp decorating "fixation"...that I didn't even know I had.  How about you?  Any little decorating "obsession" that you want to share with the group?  It's OK...we're all friends here ;)

Chat soon,


  1. I don't know what those number things are but they are great! Love all your "earrings" on everything.

  2. I love all your lights and baubles, but especially your burlap and baubles.


  3. That is so fun! I never thought to glam up my plain Jane lampshades.

  4. I just can't believe how much stuff is out here in blogland to enhance our homes. I think you may have cow tags and if not cow tags some type of animal tag. I think!

  5. You are so creative! Fun ideas...
    Thank you for the birthday wishes.

  6. Oh such cute ideas! Thank you for sharing!


  7. What a unique assortment of light shades and 'baubles'... love the egg beater (?) thingy!

    and the ribbon wrapped burlap with little tiny clothes pins and birdies... cute!


  8. Soooo creative. I'm a different kind of blogger. My posts are mostly stories right now, but I do manage a shop and love to junk. You will find a few things if you visit. I am new at this and hope you will follow me and offer some suggestions.

  9. Cute accessories. The numbered tags look like vintage cow tags. Love 'em.

  10. I am definitely going to bling out my lampshades now too! Love the numbers and the cute birds - and the stencils too - amazing!

    I have a fabricless shade - just waiting for a lamp. Love it!

    Pinning this too!

  11. Love your projects and posts! You are one of my very favorite blogs. I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award. Please check it out on my blog.

  12. Laurel, love all your creative and wonderful embellishments! Very creative!

  13. You've got a real knack with the rust "bling". Such original ideas!

  14. Hi, Laurel, I'm loving all your lamp accessories and fixtures! What a creative idea to use an egg yolk separator to display pictures! Thank you for the inspiration!

  15. These really are the sweetest little touches of whimsy. It's always the small things that add so much charm. Love them!

  16. I love all the extras on your lamps, so cute. And I agree with some of the others, your numbered tags are most likely ear tags from cows. My hubby used to be a cowboy on a cattle ranch and those look mighty familiar.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my Edison lamp.

  17. I am totally in love with ALL of your lamp baubles! How precious!! Love your style!! Excited to follow!
