- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

stitch at a time taken patiently.

A Vintage Lamp & Shade
This is one in a pair of these lamps that I have. It is so '50's, and belonged to my parents. I bring it out from time to time to change things up a bit. The lamp shade was a find at Goodwill for $2.00. I believe the shade is old also, althought I cannot be sure. I love cabbage roses, and the colors are a perfect fit in my living room.
I thought it would be a good fit. I didn't pick it up the first time I saw it, rule #1 buy it when you see it. I went back a day or two later and I was happy to see nobody purchased it, the fact that it was on a rather ugly lamp helped.
