Hungry Lamps 02..

My regular and long-term readers will be familiar with my somewhat dry humor and amusement with the personality of certain lamps - so called (by me) 'hungry lamps'.. For history on this theme please click HERE..

Don't let the homely feel of this image allure you into a false sense of security.. This gorgeous little beast will strike at the speed of a cobra.. The cat knows it and is too scared to move..

This long legged beauty doesn't care we think it is stunning.. It is on the hunt and has spotted a snack... Pillows be ware..!

These Eames chairs are terrified and stopped chatting mid-sentence.. You can tell they are holding their breath..!

This beautiful but brutal brass beast is ready to strike! The striped pillow escaped to safety, but the chair didn't have time to get away.. Look how it is trying to sink through the floor..

Fierce & ferocious twin hunters waiting for the perfect moment to take  out the innocent blue & white pillow that seems absolutely stiffened by fear!

Don't be fooled by the fake shyness..! This industrial fox is terribly sly and will spare no logs in that basket. Listen carefully and hear a faint squeak of one of the castor wheels...See the logs trying to pile up in the far end of the basket...



Have a splendid weekend all! :)

xx Charlotta


P.S. ..and no.. I haven't gone completely mad.. I'm just tired.. :)

Since I saw your previous post about 'hungry' lamps, I find it impossible to see one without thinking of it's hungry or curious nature. ;)

Love it! If you look hard enough in life you can find the personality in almost any inanimate object! Fun and I won't look at lamps the same way again! Take care!

Hahaha! What a fun post. You put a big smile on my face!

I wouldn't mind any of those hungry beasts moving into my house. I could place one close to me -- in the kitchen. We would fast be great friends - connecting over my lamb stew!

Happy weekend to you and your family!

Hihi, great post! My first time with your 'hungry lamps' and I love it!

Also the white chair is to die for. If it makes it out alive that is :)

Style Attic said...

I totally get your sense of humor and I love every bit of it! What a great laugh/read. I almost spit my drink out on the twin hunters! I keep scrolling back to that space because it's so beautiful a bedroom in it's own right. I too get witty when I'm tired :) Rest well my dear, you have posted the best laugh of the day! XO, Kelly

oh lordy I have tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks! Thank you for a happy space on this rather odd Saturday morning as I sit here worrying about family in Christchurch in the earthquake and family in Cape Cod as Hurricane Earl comes through. Needed that little dose of laughter, have a fabulous weekend, Julia.

Haha, now you made me laugh - I love your sense of hunour! :-D

So sorry I haven´t had the time to reply on your email, it has been crazy here at home lately. I have a thousand things to do but seem to get little done, and yet I´l always busy! How does that add up?! :-D

Have a great weekend, hugs!

Hope you're having an awesome weekend!

Dovecote Decor said...

Charlotta: I will never, ever be able to look at lamps like that without thinking of cobras. You aren't crazy, you are correct!
Best,
