Manic Monday - Lights

Leg Lamp
This is a shot through the window of a local dentist's office, among other lights. I've never won a "major award" before. But, I'd sure love to! A Christmas Story is my favorite holiday movie. If you've seen this movie, you'll understand the meaning behind this post, if not then you should see it! Here's the "leg lamp" scene:

I saw it for the first time last year. Really great movie. A classic. We are adding it to our yearly rotation every year

One of my favorite scenes is the lamp scene! Can't wait to watch it several times this year!

Roger said...

Nice leg...er, light!

Linda said...

Ah yes, the "foreign fragile" lamp! Love it!

I haven't had a chance to see this movie yet this year, I don't know what's wrong with TBS that it hasn't been on a bazillion times already!

I'll have my light post up tomorrow - I hope!

Lois Grebowski said...

That is one of my favorites.. It brings back so many memories from growing up. Pure Boomer-era Holiday Americana!

Are they still making this lamp in Italy, or has manufacturing moved to China?

ROFL!! That was awesome!

Polly said...

That lamp looks much better in a store window than in someone's house. This movie is one that I never liked. My siblings watched it, my cousins liked it, I always found somewhere else to be. Even now, I let husband and kids watch it while I'm gone shopping, or in the kitchen baking.

lovin the leg lamp!

Clancy In Idaho said...

LOL! That's too funny that a DENTIST had that up! What are they advertising, really? ;)

I'm with Polly... that was never one of my favorite shows. I tried to love it because so many people did, but I just couldn't. (I'm actually her cousin, so I hope she wasn't talking about me!)

That is awesome. Last year at our company Christmas party someone got that lamp and it is still displayed proudly to this day. It is an awesome lamp.

Not participating, but wanted to say...Oh Lord. I'd hate that in my front room window. Bwahahahahaha. Have a great day. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

I may quite possibly be the only person who has not seen this movie. I watched the whole clip and now I'll have to watch the movie. It seems very corny in a fun way! Thanks for visiting me!

Great pics - The Christams Story is one of the all time favs. Thanks for that.
