This used to be an old milk glass lamp that I found at a yard sale for $2.00. I loved it because it reminds me of my mother, who used to collect this particular design (grape leaf) milk glass. The shade was torn and it was one of those lamps that you had to buy a shade that fit over the bulb. With the new energy efficient bulbs, that's not an easy thing to do! So, I removed the wiring and am using it for a candlestick. I fill the bowl portion with seasonal items and absolutely love it. If you come across something that you love, but think "I don't need one of these", try to visualize it as something else. It may well be worth it. I smile every time I look at my new "candlestick".
