Sometime over the summer, I picked up this fabulous lamp at a local thrift store for $5.00!  
I loved the teal lamp that was here, but with the new curtains, it just wasn't quite working.  
I patiently waited, so unlike me, to stumble upon one at a great price.  I would call $5.00 a great price.

I already had the shade.  I pick them up at thrift stores whenever I see them. 
I don't think I have ever paid more than $3.00 for a lamp shade. 
I have a collection in the basement, just waiting to be matched with the perfect lamp.

Here's a shot of the lamp in its new home.

I finally put a picture in the small sunburst mirror (a $.50 thrift store score).  
It had been floating around the house, pictureless for some time now.

The colors in this little tablescape have me dreaming of 
crisp fall days, hot cider and hikes through the woods.
Fall is, by far, my favorite season of the year.  
We got a taste of some beautiful Fall weather this weekend.  I was in heaven.
Are you ready for Fall?


  1. Totally doesn't look like like a 5 smacker lamp - great find! And great tip for the shades!

  2. Love the new lamp! What a find! I'm ready for fall too!

  3. Love the lamp! We are beyond ready for fall around here...Thursday and Friday broke records at 104...so ready.

  4. Love that color to add a fall touch - pretty styling with the sunburst frame, too! My favorite, too!

  5. are you sure we aren't sisters?? i have a collection of lamps in the laundry/junk room (if sheet curtain makes it a room) hahahaa.... i can't help myself! every time mike sees one he says "really?" lol!
    looks great as usual!!!

  6. I can't believe that was $5!! Such a cute shape and the color is perfect!

  7. what was a well spent $5! :) it is awesome- just like lisa i am smitten by the color and shape!

  8. Did you spray the lamp to get that color? I've been trying to find something similar but haven't found the right one yet. This looks really nice. And I love fall it is my favorite time of year. I already started doing some fall decorating.

  9. Hi! I only WISH I could find lamp shades like that (and for that price) where I live. I don't know of many thrift stores, and the ones I do know of don't sell lamp shades. Would you be willing to sell any?? =) :) :P

  10. I have two large chocolate brown ginger jar lamps I picked up at a sale that need shades. Shall I come over and shop your house?


  11. It looks great with the curtains, you're right!
