Chicken Feeder Light
I am so excited to finally post my new chicken feeder light! Last spring my mom and I came across this light in a booth at the Springfield Antique Extravaganza. I liked it but I hadn't done any research about such things and I decided I could look around online. I took the woman's card at the booth and put it in the bottomless pit that is my purse.
When I got home I did some research to try and see if I could make my own but I couldn't find any that I liked as well as the one I saw at the show. Then I just plain got busy and forgot about it for a good four months.
Finally in August I came across the card in my purse and my birthday was coming up so I decided to splurge. I called the number on the card hoping against hope that by some miracle the woman still had that exact light. I guess it was my lucky day because she still had it! Now this beauty lives in my basement thanks to a little handiwork from my hubby.
While I was downstairs today George came down and found me totally enraptured while taking photos. His comment was, "I'm not sure I see it like you do." I assured him that after I was done with these photos that he too would fall in love with the chicken feeder light. I think that's why I like photography. I want other people to see things as I see them...to see the beautiful lines and patina in a chicken feeder light. I'm not sure if George fell in love, but I am totally smitten.
