In the tune of ‘Rubber Ducky’.

Saucer pendant, you’re the one
You make bath time lots of fun
Saucer pendant, I’m awfully fond of you
Bo-bo-bo-de-oh…

We made more progress in our bedroom yesterday by hanging our beloved $8.00 Nelson Saucer Pendant Lamps. Here is a snapshot of what I call ‘boob lamps’ before we started painting.

I call these 'boob lamps'.

But before we could get that accomplished, we needed to clean off some serious ick. They’ve gotten progressively dustier over the last several years {and being stored for 7 months now} and even had bird poop on one of them! A bird got into the house – it flew in through the torn porch screen and through the open door – just before we moved last year and must have been in our bedroom for quite a while before we found it perched atop one of the lamps. Poor thing was terrified.

Bath time!
{ I have no idea why the pendant looks so small while Michael is holding it. Maybe it’s because he has giant bear paws! }

This was totally by the seat of our pants. We have no idea if there is a recommended process for cleaning the funky, skink-like plastic material (you know we could have actually tried Googling it), but Michael suggested a little Oxy Clean. I’m happy to say that they are greatly improved.

Saucer Lamps

Installed! Lowe’s didn’t have any flat white ceiling caps so we had to go with the decorative ones.

Bonus! Michael found the ground attached to a live wire when he pulled off the second boob lamp. As you can see, it had been slowly sparking. This is the second electrical snafu we’ve found in the house. One of the outlets in my studio sparked and caught on fire in late August.

Wire Cap

We’re a little concerned about this.
