Irresistible Poodle

As promised a couple of pics of the two items that strictly speaking shouldn't be gracing my Art Deco inspired drawing room.

I have wanted one of these Abigail Ahern poodle lamps for the l-o-n-g-e-s-t of times. But guess what? couldn't bring myself to cough up the necessary. No surprises there really, you know my thrifty reputation and my "if it's not a bargain I'm not buying it" mantra.

But dear reader sometimes you just have to have what your heart desires regardless of cost.
I think it looks terrific atop of my recently repaired radiogram, which brings me to the other thing that doesn't shout 1930s. How could it? It's from the late 1950s.

I just don't have it in me to stick with a narrow theme, because I buy what I love and do you know what? It works for me.


  1. I've been lusting after the very same poodle lamp too. It's flipping gorgeous and I know exactly what you mean about buying what you love (if you can). I'm very tempted especially as the shop has 20% off at the mo.....

    Beautfiful radiogram too. Oh and Eartha Kitt. I love her. xx

  2. I totally agree - rooms with a very rigid theme can be a bit dull, without quite enough personality.

  3. That is the cutest lamp ever! I used to have a little poodle who was my dear companion. I love your style - reminds of the settings on the BBC Hercule Poirot series. Have a great week!

    P.S. Lilly says "hello" to your little cat!

    1. Hello, thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I've been over to your blog to take a squiz. Great discovery
