This afternoon I have come to a momentous decision. It is a decision driven by the heart and not the head. One which will no doubt create many hours of measuring and fiddling and re-measuring and bending and quite possibly some bad language.
I have fallen in love with Babs. She's pink, she fills out her cover to bursting and she's very, very curvy. here she is:
I am ignoring the horrid beading around her middle and the hair raisingly horrid feel of the crimpolene cover. She is definately not from these shores as her fittings are most definately European and this adds to her appeal. What is more........
....she has a sidekick. Mini-Babs who sits atop a rather dashing Saarinen/tulip style lamp base.
Definately worth the long process of templating their wire frames me thinks. Hopefully if we all keep our fingers and toes very tighly crossed we might have some Babs shape wire lampframes to re-cover or paint in a few weeks time.
