A little light in your life...

I have lusted for this lamp ever since I saw it in a magazine. I bought the small version of this light from Ikea.  I had it installed in my studio in my new house.   It makes me happy everytime I see it.


Here is another picture of my large dandelion type light. At night it sends off these delicious shadows that look like flowers.  I adore it. My boys think it is way over the top!


I bought this lamp years ago at a church rummage sale.  It is from Italy and the base is Italian marble, with a brass base.  The lamp is handmade Italian pottery with the most beautiful handmade roses on it.

Here is a closer shot of it.  It is a tall lamp.  I keep it on the dresser in my bedroom.  I love the muted tones of this lamp, the elegant feel to it. It is very understated.

Here is a very close shot of the roses.  Aren't they beautiful? I love that they are lightly tinged with pink.  It is like having roses everyday!

I am slowly but surely getting things rolling in my new house. I have bought new counter tops, a new cook top, a new sofa, replaced most of the light fixtures and door knobs. Painted, painted, and painted. Still have two ceilings to go.  I am putting slate floors in the kitchen and familyroom. Bought fabric for nine chairs to be reupholstered. Lined more drawers, shelves, than I can count. Gone through 24 wardrobe boxes, sorted clothes, taken bags to Goodwill, and to a local consignment store. I figure another two weeks and most of the heavy work will be finished. Knock on wood. It is an adventure. Hope a little light shines on you...

How could this exquisite lamp end up at a rummage sale?!?! It's so shabby chic and yet elegant. I love it!
