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.

I love this little lamp. I really like lamps and even have a tiny one on my kitchen counter for the nighttime when I don't need a huge overhead light on. I find them very enchanting.

I love this lamp. So pretty, has to bring joy and cozy to the room. I love lamps and changing from time to time. I have little ones for my kitchen, adds a whole new feeling each time I change them.

Leaving the light on for you
