Five Lamps that Add a Touch of Tradition to your Home

 

If you are nostalgic of the classic contemporary tradition, you must have infused a lot of vintage-looking elements in your home. Integrating tradition doesn't have to be expensive. There are a lot of items commonly found in flea markets, local shops and specialty bazaars that will create a totally historical theme in your modern home. 

The stylistic designs of exotic and vintage candle holders, table lamps, wedding centerpiece lanterns, and sconce sets can elegantly add to the natural design of a classic historical themed home.

Among the featured lamps in our store are the following:

1. Colonial Candle Lamp. The cutouts and glass windows gleam with reflected candlelight in this colonial-style metal candle lamp. Bright burnished finish and a wire hanging loop also add to the elegance it radiates. The item is stand-alone table lamp that, when seated beside those salvaged contemporary books, will truly invite a nostalgic atmosphere.

2. Black Colonial Rectangle Candle Lantern Dark Metal Frame. This rectangular candle lantern features a dark metal frame and clear glass panels that allow a candle of your choice to shine brightly. The top of the lantern features a starry cutout pattern and a hanging loop. The dark metal contributes to the heme by bringing out the contemporary era's leaning towards richness and subtlety of life without worrying about criticism.

3. White Colonial Candle Lamp. This traditional candle lantern gets a fresh contemporary look with matte white finish and charming star cutouts. A simple yet elegant complement sheds festive light on any setting. This item is one of the featured wedding centerpieces, especially for couples who want their special event to establish a country-looking appeal, and a mellow leaning towards the Old West.

4. Carriage Style Candle Lantern. The simple colonial lines and a classic black finish give this handsome candle lamp a timeless appeal. Fill with a colorful pillar candle for a wonderfully warming display!.

5. White Colonial Rectangle Lantern. Turn the dark of night into star light with this beautiful candle lantern. Four clear glass panels are set into a rectangular metal frame that is finished in white and topped with starry cutouts and a hanging loop.

When decorating the home based on traditional setting, it is recommended that bright colors are dominated by vintage styles, rustic looks, matte, flesh, or grayish black or dark brown elements, if they cannot be totally avoided. Similarly, for budget decorations, existing elements don't have to be completely eliminated. It would even be great to have them be well-integrated with touch of tradition as those classic elements will be able to draw more attention.

Happy home decorating!

Five Great Brain Exercise Apps for Avoiding Alzheimer's Disease

Five Great Brain Exercise Apps for Avoiding Alzheimer's Disease I always thought that I had a high capacity for recalling things. In fact, I could vividly describe what happened when I was a small child, the addresses of places I lived in my lifetime, etc.. However, as I age, there are things that I could easily forget. In one workshop, while in the middle of my group's brainstorming, I was leading a discussion flow and was writing a term on the poster board. Lo and behold, I could not remember the correct spelling that very common word! What a real embarrassment. This and many other situations led me to exploring how to handle and manage my condition. I was caught in great fear because of researches nowadays that reveal how the early onset of Alzheimer's disease is emerging in people age 40 and above (now you know I'm part of the age group!). My constant exploration brought me to these top five mobile and portable device apps that anyone like me

Wowowee and Pinoy Mentality

Several days ago, a chatmate in the Middle East left me without a warning because "it's Wowowee time". Now I realize even TFC-North America has THREE daily airing schedules of Wowowee! What is happening to us? Na unsa na man ta ani oi? says a Visayan friend. The Pinoys all over the world have been hooked into what we call back home as a "noontime show mentality". Everyone is rushing to the screen, not bothered by hectic schedules. No one wants to miss Wowowee. What is in Wowowee? If we dissect the program, we would be able to categorize details into interesting chunks: a male host singing a variety of Lito Camu compositions, gorgeous and sexy co-hosts doing stints of slang and mispronounced words, a co-host comedienne fluterring her daily outrageous fashion statement and popular lines like "Habang may buhay, may Arabo!", sexy dancers doing roundabouts of risky steps, and a lot of games that benefit the "poor but deserving". If we

The Day I Fell In Love with Onara

No, don't think that way. Onara is not a human being. It is a song. This song is closely associated with the globally-acclaimed Korean television drama series that earned so much respect, was dubbed in different languages, and whose theme song and soundtrack were adopted for grand operas and philharmonic performances. Jewel in the Palace , starred by Lee Young Ai , is based on the story of Korean historical personality Dae Jang Geum (literally "The Great Jang Geum" ), an orphaned palace kitchen maid who went on to become the king's first female physician. In a time when women held little influence in society, young apprentice cook Jang Geum strove to learn the secrets of Korean cooking and medicine in order to cure the King of his various ailments. It is based on the true story of Jang Geum, the first female royal physician of the Joseon Dynasty. The main themes are her perseverance and the portrayal of traditional Korean culture, including Korean royal court cu

An OFW's Letter to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo

Dear Mrs. President, How I wish I were home when you had your 2009 State-of-the-Nation Address. I would have joined the millions of Filipinos excitedly awaiting for your yearly report over the broadsheet, radio and television stations. I would have been so vigilant in monitoring crowd formations near MalacaƱan Palace, EDSA-Ortigas, Paseo de Roxas, or near the House of Representatives in Commonwealth. Over the years I was an active spectator --- joining public opinions about the possibility of changing our nation's course of events through the strengths and opportunities that formed part of your SONAs. This year, however, is the first time that I failed to have an access to the first-hand account surrounding your State-of-the-Nation Address. I will surely miss the blow-by-blow reports and analysis of top-rated journalists whose words charismatically provoke citizens, even in the margins, to speak and to take a stand, for or against our country's social issues. I faile

Li'l Wayne Music, SAT scores, and Success in Life

I always bother myself with the thought that many of my students won't be able to go to college. I believe that their disabilities are a culprit, but I wanted to know if there are other factors that aggravate the situation. In one of my online moments, I bumped into a research conducted by California Tech PhD student Virgil Griffith. He collected favorite music of college students using their universities' Network Statistics page on Facebook. Then he looked at the average SAT/ACT score from CollegeBoard for students attending every college. Critics of the study claim that it is 'unscientific' because of the method and the source (Facebook), but I found it to be an essential source of understanding of how my students behave, what kinds of music they listen to, and the effect of this music in their struggle toward educational success. In the study, Griffith included 133 most favorite music that appeared on Facebook and considered a variety of genre, including Hip
