Off Topic Tuesday ~ Swag Lamps

I don't have any exciting, new project to show today. What I do have are piles of cut denim, with Sharpie pen designs on them, waiting to be stitched. So I thought I would talk about swag lamps.
Being that this is a blog about embroidery, swag lamps are a bit off topic. So I decided to create "Off Topic Tuesday"! Here is the first edition.
I love, love, love swag lamps. I'm a Gemini and that makes me a bit non-committal. I love that I don't have to do anything super permanent and still have overhead lighting. I found this beauty at a garage sale weekend before last. I snagged mine for $5.00! The below photo is not my actual lamp but one just like it. I am NOT selling mine!

I posted a photo and a description to my personal Facebook page and it turns out that my grandparents had one just like it, as did my aunt and uncle and a friend. Lol, sounds like these were a dime a dozen back in the day! Probably a lot of crushed orange glass in landfills now :-(
Anyway, in honor of my new 70's~licious lamp, here are some other beauties to be found on Pinterest.

Ha! I have one just like this one! I had spray painted my ReStore find yellow last summer. Glad to know I have style.
