This Little Light of Mine


While I was shopping at one of my favorite stores (Hobby Lobby) this weekend, I spotted this little jewel. I don't mind telling you that I just had to have it. You know, when you think you can't live without it and your mind can't let it go kind of thing. So I whipped out my 40 % off coupon and bought the little jewel and took it home with me. The lamp shade is made of off white material with droopy cloth flowers attached. Ruffles run down the sides all around the shade.


This little light of mine sits in one of our spare bedrooms, The Yellow Rose,  and looks like it was made to be in there. (Yes, I name my rooms. Doesn't everybody?) In six months my hubby will notice the lamp and ask me when I got it. I'll tell him, "That old thing. I've had it for six months!"



The  French Provincial bedroom suite was my sister's when she was a little girl. My mother painted it yellow and distressed it after we both had grown and left home. It's almost 50 years old. The new lamp looks rather frenchy sitting on the nightstand, don't you think?





I love the way my yellow bedroom turned out and the lamp is the finishing touch.

Au Revoir,

Christine

Postnote: I noticed in the Sunday paper that lamps are 50% off this week at H.L.  Wouldn't you know!

Love your new HL lamp! I hate it when something goes on sale after I buy it. Look at it this way, if you had waited it might I been gone.

It looks beautiful and right at home. In my state, we have a 30 day law where you can get the lowest sale price within 30 days of your purchase.

The lamp is just perfect for the room! By the way, if you have a smart phone you don't have to remember to take a coupon with you. Just access the HL website on your phone and click on the coupon button. Then show it to the person who checks you out. That has saved me more than once recently.

I don't think I have enough rooms here at the teensie-weensie cottage to name them... :-) They're already the den, the studio and the bedroom, does that count??

Isn't that the way it always works? Whatever you buy will go on sale in a couple of days, and if you don't buy it.......it'll be GONE and they won't be getting any more.

Love your darling little lamp... I can see why you had to have it.

Huggies,

I love your lamp, especially the flowers! Looks pretty in your spare room. AND I so agree with the previous post! What is up with these new word verifications? I can read one word great but the second word is horrible. Going to check out the link you gave! Enjoy!
