A New (Old) Lamp!

I went to a garage sale a couple of weeks ago and purchased this lamp for $5. It's a great old, heavy lamp with an oversized shade.
Here is the lamp without a shade:
And here is the lamp with the new shade:
I confess, the new shade cost more than $5. But, doesn't the lamp look great?

I'm linking this post to the website Between Naps on the Porch. Have you ever been to this site? It's a fun place, filled with great ideas and beautiful pictures.

The site hosts two weekly blog parties, Metamorphosis Monday and Tablescape Thursday. This is the first time I have participated in one of the blog parties.

Please, take the time to visit Between Naps on the Porch. You won't be sorry!


  1. Wow...I LOVE that lamp! What a difference a day..I mean a shade makes! Wonderful garage sale find and the shade was worth the extra money because now you have a first rate lamp to die for!
