The Owls Are Hunting

Pinch me. What a way to kick off a new month. I've fallen head over heels with these retro-inspired lamps by newly launched shop The Owls Are Hunting this past weekend. Talented founder/owner Jo is from England but now lives in Australia where she takes vintage lamps and gives them a bit of love and then tops the bases with handmade shades. Oh my, this lamp below gives me such goose bumps!

I'm crazy about the base and the shade is just perfect (above), don't you think? I would love to order the exact same one for my office. Well the office I plan to have once I find a new place to live! Ah, so fresh and vibrant. Here are some additional views of the lamps that Jo creates and a few glimpses of her work studio in Canberra. See if this doesn't brighten your day...
