Lamp Shade with Flags

Lamp Shade with Flags

Had to take this photo. Maybe it was the Kirschwasser that made me do it.

In the cozy huts in the ski area of Val Gardena, Italy, skiers cheerfully consume lots of “Obstlers”. Each glass comes adorned with a little flag piercing a piece of fruit. Well, these flags have to go somewhere, and somehow the tradition started many years ago to stick them into the lamp shades hanging over the tables.
I like the whimsical look that this rawhide shade has adopted.
