Lamp or candle holder? BOTH!

I stopped at this little Thrift store in my neighborhood yesterday.  I don't usually do very well there but sometimes I do, like yesterday!!
Found these two lamps.

This one is missing the socket.  First thing I thought about is a candle of course.

This one works.  So, do I have one with candle and one that works and break up the pare?
Or, do I HAVE the other one fixed and keep them together forever...
but then the sockets won't match.
Knowing me I will break them up...
What do you think???
Happy Thursday bloggers!!!

Well you know me...I would tear them apart and use them for other projects...I saw a birdbath of different glass parts that I want to make...I'll try to find the link for you...A TREASURE indeed.

I love playing with lamps like that, re-wiring is super easy too.

I've like to hear from Anita about that birdbath with different glass parts...

Have fun!

Hi Sue,

Adorable! Never seen that before. I would either use them as is or fix the broken one and have two lamps. Although, it would be rather nice having them as candleholders too... Hm. Decisions, decisions... ;)

I stopped by at the Savvy City Farmer. Interesting thoughts!

Have a great weekend!
