Let There Be Light...Whole Lotta Love ..Day 5

Good evening friends.  As darkness is approaching here at the home place I thought I would share with you another one of my loves.  If you visit often, you know I want my home to be so cozy and homey. I want that" take your shoes off, get comfy feeling " as one enters the door.  One way I have found to get that feeling is with soft lighting.  I so love my lamps, candles and tart burners.  Many of you have seen my lamps before but they are a true obsession I have.  So here we go.  These are all taken in the great room

Do you think I really like my cozy lighting ?  Well that is not all just in this room.  There are 2 more candles and another lamp I forgot to take pictures of over by the piano.  All the battery operated ones stay on until the batteries die, and there are a few of the electrical ones we leave on 24/7.  Mr. 
P. teases me all the time about my pretties.
Now let's move on into the kitchen.
See that huge grater?  It was a Christmas gift and I knew the minute I saw it, yep another lamp.
On the stove board made from an old funnel.
Hallway leading to the bath. And now the bath.
On the back of the commode
The bath tub tray Mr. P. made for me just before Christmas.
And there are 4 more in the bedroom.  I really meant to show you the lamp hubby made me out of an old kerosene heater, but forgot it too.  Maybe next time. 
So there you have it.  Some of my favorite lamps, candles, and whole lotta love.  We are planning a mini vacation next week, and guess what I will be on the look out for?   Shhh, don't let Mr. P. know but yes, I will be looking for another pretty lamp, candles on timers for all my windows and who knows what I might just find.
Have a great evening.  See ya tomorrow...
