A Box of Lamp Parts

At a auction that we were at recently we won some boxes with a few treasures in them. My husband is learning to ask now if I want something before he throws it. These were an example of what he was going to just throw.
The first thing I knew I wanted was this piece. Ive had this plant stand from my parents for a long time. The top was just a piece of plywood, and Ive been looking for a top for it for awhile. This piece worked out great. It has a hole in the middle but the lamp covers it up and no one knows but me. 
I had this little trophy base that needed something also. The round piece fits nice on top and a candle works great for it.
This piece has small round feet on it so it works good in the kitchen when I need a hot plate. Or just to sit there and have a candle on it.
The last piece I will use as a plant stake this spring on real flowers. These are just fake ones in our breezeway. But you get the idea. The little cherubs on the side were too cute not to do something with.
