This is an onion lamp. Elenka likes them a lot. I'm not so sure. Every time we're in need of some sort of outside lighting, she always seems to bring the conversation around to a fixture like this. I tend to lean towards the more basic. Call it simple. Don't get me wrong. It's not that I don't like the design. I really do, but I like them on the bigger houses. However, I must say this, I've never picked wrong going with Elenka's choices... in ANYTHING! Knobs on cabinets, paint color, carpet, rock design on the back walkway, furniture choices. Take your pick. She has the 'eye'. So, here's the bottom line---I wouldn't bet against one of these gracing our yard someday.

  2. Interesting name for that light fixture. Elenka is a wise woman and you are a very wise man to follow her lead! The pictured door is usual since it duplicated the shutters on either side.

  9. Sounds like you have the perfect marriage. Elenka does have excellent taste in lamps. This is a good one. Your door photo is fascinating. The door appears designed to close securely, but let air blow through. I might expect to find this is the South, but not in Portland.

  15. This reminds me of the guy who was asked if he could play golf next Sunday. He said, "Well, I could but I'll have to check with my wife to see if I want to."

    I don't think I've seen an onion lamp. Do they bring tears if you get too close to them?
