Wow--that is a spectacular picture! Very impressive. By the way, I tagged you to do a survey thingy if you'd like. You can post pictures with it, but I was too impatient to upload any.

the texture and color is amazing!!

Cheryl said...

The muted background is perfect for the color and texture. Beautiful. My WW is up too, though it's only Tuesday night here. I guess I'll link it in the morning. :)

Janet said...

That's so beautiful! I'd love to see it lit in the early evening :-)

Jim said...

That is a very pretty lamp. I am wondering if it has a bulb or a flame?
Happy WW, thank you for your visit and nice comment. I agree that IS fast food. I wouldn't use it if we had it here.

BTW, it has been a while but Mrs. Jim and I toured Israel for a whole week.
It is a very nice place, you guys have done wonders with your country! No wonder the neighbors are envious.

The lamp has too many holes - the genie can easily escape. Even so, it's a nice picture.

Randall said...

That is an absolutely gorgeous piece. Is it bronze with a patina?

Robin said...

I don't think so Randall. I believe it's painted iron.

Robert said...

Great shot. I'm so incredibly behind on reading blogs. I hope life slows down a bit cause I miss being in blogland. I'll do my best to catch up. In the meantime, hope youre doing well.

Eds said...

Gorgeous, Robin. Its pattern blends with the texture of the wall behind it. Great stuff.

What a beautiful picture. I love the intricate, yet worn detail. I imagine the color of it just popping out of it surroundings as you walk by.

Thanks for dropping by. Happy WW! :D

Scribbit said...

what I like about that is that it conveys quite a bit in just one image. Gorgeous.

Love that blue color!

It's always in the details, isn't it? I love the blue against the neutral background. Really jumps out at you!

Carol Anne said...

This is beautiful. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful photos.

Elizabeth Bonds said...

Oooo, I love that. It looks so rustic but beautifully punched up with that wonderful teal color.

Thanks for commenting on my WW, by the way. My oldest sister was in high school in 1986 too, so don't feel too old. hehe

Happy WW.

Jaden Paige said...

What a beautiful lamp! I want one!

The colors are great, and it's especially nice against the texture of the wall... Happy WW!

Beautiful and outstanding!

Kath said...

I love this colour and the filligree is beautiful. I am sending my sister over for a look. You've managed to capture her favourite colour and she visited Israel this year for the first time. I know she's going to love your blog.

The green color against that pale wall makes is outstanding. A lovely and unique lamp.

That is just a gorgeous picture. The color, the filigree, the stone behind. I adore it!
