ALL of my lamps have been gently loved before. I can tell. There's too many lamps to properly describe today but I will show you MY FAVORITE of all my lamps (for now.) The lamps are not jealous of each other because they all get their shining moments and time with me. Just like one of my other thrifty lamps that I posted about here just the other day and that just happened to be FEATURED by Rhoda yesterday at Southern Hospitality! Thank you Rhoda!
Let me tell you how me and this lamp got together. The Christian Outreach Thrift Store was having a yard sale. You know the price is going to be right if the thrift store is having a yard sale. However, when I pulled up, it was not a pretty scene. A bunch of shopping carts and boxes were just lined up outside the door. Mostly clothes. Boo. Nothing was displayed or organized nice at all. I took a quick glance around so I wouldn't look snobby. Not seeing anything of interest and feeling defeated, I started to leave. Whoa not so fast KK...Is that something Sparkling? Metal? Clear Glass? Yes, Yes and Yes! I had to look closer. It all happened so quickly. As soon as I saw her, she was MINE. I asked how much? The lady said, "It doesn't work. You can have it for $2.00." Oh my Goodness!
So Without further Ado...here she is...insert audience clapping...
Her thin little cord was frayed and very old but her round, clear glass body is upheld by a narrow glass pedastal which stands upon a beautiful marble base.
The hardware is brass with a beautiful aged patina. I usually don't like brass but she is different!
I like her so much that I display her as she is. Non-working and nakedly beautiful with her harp showing proudly.
I think she fits in flawlessly.
I do love my lamps. More lamps are coming soon! It is so cold and rainy today (as you can tell by the dark pictures.) I need to go upstairs to get my thrifty quilt out. Come on up to my bedroom in the trees. (You can get a sneak peek at my bed that I painted.)
I love listening to the rain and looking out my bedroom window while in bed. The bedroom is 2.5 stories above ground and feels like a tree house. OK...back to the quilt.
I found this beautiful quilt at The First United Methodist yard sale last year. I love going to church sales. The ladies usually have the nicest stuff. I can't remember how much I paid but it couldn't have been much. Trust me. I believe it is queen size. The tag is JC Penny Home Collection. The quilting and fabrics are perfect. I think the pillow I found at the Salvation Army for $2.50 looks great with the quilt.
Look at the colors and stitching.
Time to lay down and listen to the birds singing in the rain.Thank you for stopping by today. Do you love your lamps? Do you love quilts like me? Listening to birds sing in the rain?
I'm linking up with these fun parties. Come on lets Party:
