THE BLACK CAT MEETS THE WHITE ONE

I've had this lamp for perhaps a year already, not being able to use it - I ordered it online from the US and didn't think of the fact that it wouldn't work over here as it is (you know, as everything has to be different there in America). As taking it to that one electronics shop outside of town that I was told could change the whole shabadang into matching our power system seemed to be one of those never-gonna-happen things I almost gave up on it. But yesterday Eddi removed the bulb system and used one of the extra lamp chords we had here at home and now, ta-daa, let there be light!

The siamese lamp is from Modcloth.

(Eddi asked me if I wrote out that he was like Mc Gyver, well, I didn't but now I did, sort of :)

So cute! I am normally not a big fan of "novelty lamps" but that is adorable.

Kate : yes, actually I think the lamp is rather horrible, but in a way also wonderful; I still like it :)

hej,
I love the lamp, but I love the wallpaper more. Please tell me that it is not vintage and still in production. It is perfect.
Have a great day.
God Jul,

Fantastic lamp AND wallpaper!!

Jenny : It's Birger Kaipiainens 'Ken Kiuruista Kaunein' (translaters "Who's the pretties of the nightingales") from the fifties. To be honest I am not sure if it is in production again or if it is sold as deadstock, but you can get it from tapettitalo.fi - they do not have an online shop but they have info in english and I think you can buy by email. The wallpaper comes in 3 or 4 colour options.
