This was custom made for a yard sale and coffee fanatic (Happy Birthday, Jolene)! Her hubby, Matt, asked me if I could do one just for her.  I asked a few questions- what does she like to do, favorite colors, and found out that she like percolators....and the light came on!  This was my first one using a percolator in the lamp body.  It includes appropriate titled books secured to askewd, mismatched melmac cups and saucers.The light comes from the top of the percolator with original power cord  to accent.  Custom made coffee theme  3-panel shade with coordinating beaded trim; line switch.  When you pick this up, it ALL picks up!  Titled, signed and dated.
 
Book titles: The Negotiating Game/ Early Bird/ Treasure Hunt.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Early Bird
