Ask and you shall receive!

Many years ago I posted a link on the right side of this page that told readers what few items we were in the market for. The main two items were a door that is 101" X 36 " and a ceiling light fixture for the parlor. Well, we have had several referrals but no luck on the door. We got one email about a month or so ago regarding a light fixture though. I took up the offer to acquire the fixture and installed it the day that it arrived. The only issue was that it came without the six shades that it needed. I don't know if you have ever looked for shades but they can end up costing more than the light fixture if you are not careful. Kind of like getting a picture framed. I just spent $300 a piece getting two $20 posters framed. Some things just don't make sense!
Any way. The person who sold me the light fixture has been eager to see if I would make a post about this. I held off until the light shades arrived. I was able to get the best possible price for these shades at Lehmans which is here in Ohio. Believe me I searched extensively online at many options. These were the most cost effective. Of course I had to order 6 pieces which caused an automatic backorder situation which delayed delivery. Anyway, here is the light fixture in all it's glory.

Now I am going to have to paint the room!

I had 6 shades in the same style in a carmel color, but with a smaller fitter. We only had a couple of globe style shades (like the fixture on your "want" page), so I'm glad you found what you wanted at a good price. I'm sure the fixture is happy in its new home. Thanks for posting the photo--FINALLY! (I was beginning to worry that you'd fallen off the ladder or was electrocuted while installing the light! :-)
