Photo Lampshades and Great food

Happy Valentines Day! It was so nice to enjoy dinner with my two valentines tonight at my favorite restaurant, O’Connor’s Restaurant & Bar located at 1160 West Boylston Street, Worcester, MA.

My husband and I have been enjoying the famous food, best brews, and genuine hospitality at O’Connor’s Restaurant for more than 25 years. What a treat it was to retrieve a message from the owner Brendan asking me to create some unique lampshades for his restaurant using the beautiful photographs of Ireland taken by Ron Rosenstock.

If you are looking for a fantastic meal, friendly atmosphere, and an artistic glimpse of Ireland, then O’Connor’s is the place to go. Please be sure to tell Brendan that the Lampshade Lady sent you!

A special thank you to my new friends also enjoying dinner tonight.

Mid Century Modern Lamp Restoration

A dear friend came to me seeking my assistance in restoring this pair of lamps handed down from her father in Law.

Fortunately the original shades and diffusers were located in the basement of the home by her husband who had remembered them from his childhood.

The fittings were solid brass and with some persistent polishing they came out really nice. The wood refinished nicely and diffusers were repainted also.

Topped off with remade linen shades this pair looks ready for the set of Mad Men. As an added treat we found out that these table lamps are Gerald Thurston for Lightolier.
