Whimsical find!

We have a local store closing their doors that was our only 
quality lighting center in town.  This was the place to go
if you were building a new home, remodeling or just 
wanted a great looking lamp for your home. 
On my 2nd visit to the store I found this lamp that 
I think they had hidden somewhere, because
I don't think I would have missed it the
first time! I felt it would be a good fit color wise 
and since I am a cat lover I got a kick out of it. 
This was the 2nd spot I tried it out in my 
kitchen dining area.  I didn't expect to put
it here, but I am liking it!
See the cat inside and the bird outside!
I thought it was rather whimsical and since
I've never purchased anything like
this before I decided it was a must.

I'm going to miss this store and unfortunately
it's just another company that has bit 
the dust as a result of our economy.
New construction is still in the tank in
Michigan since there are so many 
homes available at discount due to
