Mum's Light Due To Be Replaced By My Brass One!
February 18, 2013 8:55am CST
I'm really pleased that Mum decided to take our old brass 3-arm light fitting away with her. I did stress that I wouldn't be upset if she changed her mind and decided not to bother with it..but she has and I'm chuffed. Anyway, I thought I'd show you the photograph of Mum's old light fitting on the landing that is due to be replaced by our brass one. The area the light would go is fine and - once an electrician has come to fix it - I reckon it will look marvellous in its new home. I shall take another photograph of it - hopefully in April, so it should be up by then! It's great to re-use items as I didn't fancy it being scrapped. It would be such a shame for it not to be enjoyed in another home.

It would've been great to sell the light on ebay but I got nowhere, unfortunately, unless I wanted to sell it for peanuts, something I didn't want to do. I would rather give it away to my Mum for nothing which is what I've ended up doing, of course.

I am glad it's found a good home! I have a train set that I had as a child, it's well looked after, and packed away carefully, trouble is, it's too good to give away, so I asked my cousin if she would like it for her two little boys, the oldest is only 5, so still a bit young, but I have told her she is welcome to it. I have also given her a keyboard for the eldest to play on, if they get some use out of it. I know my cousin struggles financially, so it's my little way of helping out. I also gave her the children my lego which I loved as a child. I hope they get the same fun out of it as I did.
