Behold the lamp....
We bought three lamp shades before we found the right tone. It is a Wal-Mart special at $6. I figure if I ever spy a better one, I am fine with donating this shade to charity and losing the $6. I think I did pretty good for a total $8.50 investment.
So what do I love about this lamp? Well, I love the painted flowers. I love the autumn colours. I love the glazed effect at the top and bottom of the base. I love the circular gold band around the bottom base. I guess it is circa 1970 something. I can see it sitting in someone's living room many decades ago. Maybe in a room filled with harvest gold furniture or maybe that awesome olive green that was so popular back then.
I'll leave you with a photo I took this morning of one hungry little one. "Feed me Mama!"
