Vintage Style Lamp for the Cottage

I'm excited to show to you my new lamp--


Isn't it lovely?  Now here's the part that really makes this special.  It cost only $10!  I found it in an antique store sitting among other lamps with higher price tags.  I thought that maybe something was wrong with it so I inspected it closely.  It works perfectly.  It's just the look that I wanted for the sideboard in my kitchen.  I'm happy.

The bird embossed pitcher is a Home Goods purchase and the teapot is one I've had for a long time, Blue Peony by Nikko.  I placed them there so that you can get an idea of the size of the lamp.  Such a sweet vignette, it looks so cheery when the sun shines through the window.  Speaking of sun, we're expecting warm, sunny weather for this week.  The garden beckons.

This was a short post for me today, I'm in the process of making slipcovers for my wingback chairs (YIKES!)- We'll save those particulars for another post :-)

I'm linking to Show Off Your Cottage Monday and Teapot and Tea Things Tuesday

Thanks for visiting me today, I hope you have a great day.  Many blessings.

Wonderful find and it looks beautiful in this vignette you've created. Wonderful tea pot, pitcher and I love the nest. Happy Tea Day!

What a find! The lamp is charming. Looks so wonderful on your table. Also love the white pitcher. I am a Home Goods addict, lol. Not much buying, lots of looking on our retirement budget, lol. I had not seen that pitcher in our stores. Blessings.
