Snag Gag Gift?

My friend and now neighbor (she and her husband moved into my favorite house in the neighborhood just down the street) stopped by our house on Friday night to drop off a gag gift she found for me. She wanted to find something vintage, yet so hideous I would be shocked by its repulsiveness. However, I kind of love it. I believe I told her, “Well jokes on you, I like it! Wait till you see what I find you!”

Gnome Lamp OverallEven my father-in-law, who isn’t too keen on anything vintage, thought it would be “adorable” (his words, not mine) with a shade painted to look like a mushroom.

Gnome Lamp DetailWhile my friend is right that it probably won’t be a permanent fixture in my house due to its excessive kitchiness, I definitely like it and will be searching for a lamp shade that clips to the bulb and can be painted a cheery mushroom red. Then it will be delivered to Tammy’s house. What do you think about the lamp? Would it go in your house or would you donate it to whence it came?
