duh duh DUHHHH....
For those of y'all that don't know, Lulu over at Lulu's Laundry recently created Mystery Theater Thursday. If you have a mystery, you can post about it and hopefully one of your readers can help you solve it. Go check out her MTT page -- it's hilarious.
So, okay, y'all. I have a mystery. Well, it might not be a mystery to you, but it's a mystery to me -- or a misdemeanor to me, as we say in my family. What can I say, my mother was a probation officer.
I have these lamps, see.
And I love these lamps. I've had them for a couple of years and I used to have them on my mantle at my old house. But here's my problem. The base of these lamps are silver and they tarnish like a son-of-a-biscuit eater and I HATE that. You can't really tell from this photo, but the one on the left is nice and shiny. The one on the right? Black as the ace of spades.
Is there something, ANYTHING, I can do to keep them from tarnishing? Besides polishing them weekly, I mean, 'cause that's just not gonna' happen.
Or am I being silly? Is a little tarnish okay? Does that give them a "shabby chic" look or does it just look shabby?
Help me, lovely internets. Surely there's a Heloise among you.
