Giant Lanterns

Ever since I saw THIS post on little green notebook, I’ve been wanting similar, LARGE lanterns for my own home. Obviously I’ll paint over the brass, but I love the look. I saw this one for sale at the flea this past Saturday for $35 but, I had Ryan with me and he just wasn’t buying the idea [or the lantern, clearly].

However at Monday night’s auction…I won this guy for $15 and I’m thrilled. The glass is AMAZING – very, very old [and a bit foggy/dewy in this shot due to the early hour in the day]. Because the glass is completely removable, painting it will be a breeze. Imagine it painted glossy black or red? I cannot wait to get started on this. AHHHHHH!!!
