Skyar to Cappiccinini

An accident and an old shell lamp turns out to be a Cappiccinini, a term Pinky coins for her new lamp.

The frame of the Skyar lamp (can’t find the link), after a gust of wind tears the paper lamp shade, is given a second chance at life with a shell lampshade.

    there is some spam in these comments, and a mispelling to fix.

    The lamp is actually called Skyar, not Skylar. Not sure if there’s a way to label this post correctly, so it will show up in searches?
