Decorating With Lamps


I love lamps, but they are so expensive that I almost always buy them on sale. This is a collection of the lamps I am currently using. The rest are stored in my basement. I frequently dust them off and bring them back out. You will notice that most of the lamps are tall and skinny. They are my favorite kind.
I just purchased this yesterday at Homegoods! I paid $50.00 This is the most I've ever paid but I fell in love with this lamp. I was going to make one out of some of my tea cups but decided I couldn't do better than this.

I always look for skinny lamps because I like to have room on my tables for other décor.  This one was purchased at Target about 3 years ago.

Found this lamp in old general store many years ago. It was on sale because the shade was damaged. I turned it to the back so you can't see the flaw.
