New Lamp

Hello everyone!
 
I recently found a beautiful new lamp for my secretary.  I tried using some of the lamps that I already had, but wasn't happy with their scale or color, so I went shopping and found this one.  It came from Hobby Lobby and was 50% off.  It ended up being only $30! 
 
 
 
I am so happy with it!  It's just the right size, color and style for this piece of furniture.
 


I love the shade most of all.  It has a cute bow on it and a burlap texture. 
 
 
It also has an interesting feminine base too.
 
I was pleased to see that it looked good when lit up too.  I wasn't able to try it out before buying it. 
 
 
I also found these chandelier lamp shades on sale.  I wasn't even looking for these, but doesn't that always happen??? 
 

They are hanging on the chandelier in the same room as the secretary.  I like how they match my dropcloths draperies too. 
 
So, it was a successful day at the 'ol Hobby Lobby! 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Good Afternoon Kelly, What a pretty lamp. I love the base as it's quite unusual. Doesn't it always work out that way, when you are looking for something, 9 times out of 10 you don't find it, but when your not looking for something, the perfect thing appears. I loved Hobby Lobby when I visited Atlanta a couple of years ago, I was amazed at the amount of "money off" offers there were, I was in heaven! Have a lovely Sunday. Best Wishes Daphne

Love your blog ...just stopping by to say that...even though it always makes me want more pillows!

i think 'hob lob' has the best selection of lamps and they are even better when they're 1/2 off! last year for my b'day i (hubby) bought a pair for our bedroom that have the mercury glass base and burlap shade on sale ($100 for both)...they are almost identical to the PB ones that are 100's of $$!

your lamp is so pretty and the way you've styled your secretary is just gorgeous!

Such a pretty lamp! Love the boxwood wreaths hanging on the doors of your secretary too. I buy all of my lamps at Hobby Lobby, they always have such unique ones and you gotta love that half off!

Kelly: Didn't I just tell you that I always enjoy your decorations. I saw a smiliar lamp at Hobby Lobby and fell in love but didn't think it would really match my Victorian style. But I so love this one on your desk. Just perfect and looks just like you..Happy Sunday..Judy

It looks great there! If the shade had not been the same uniform size all over, I don't think it would have worked there. But it looks fantastic. Great buy!

love both the lamp shade and the chandelier shades! I think that if you sign up on their website (hobby lobby), they send out printable coupons every now and then

Shelia said...

Hi Kelly! Your new little lamp is just darling with your pretty secretary. Looks wonderful. Those little chandy shades are so sweet too!
You're right. I shouldn't have eaten the cabbage casserole - I'm paying for it! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love your lamp. Kelly and it looks so homey when it is lit up. Isn't that always the way that you find something as fabulous as those shades when you aren't looking for them.

Hugs,
Laura

Andrea said...

adore your new lamp, which looks perfect in its new home!! I have said it before, and will say it again, how I wish we had Hobby Lobby in Canada!

Love Hobby Lobby..Lookin' good...

Blondie's Journal said...

I love it, Kelly! The bow is so sweet! I haven't been to Hobby Lobby in awhile. In fact I haven't been to Homegoods or Michael's or TJ Maxx...lol! I have been concentrating on finding some new fall clothes. It really has to be one or the other on my budget and I definitely don't need anything new to tempt me for my home!!

XO,
Jane

I love your new lamp and lampshades! And I'm especially excited that they're opening a Hobby Lobby in a town about an hour away from us. I'll finally get to see what all the hoopla is about!

Holly said...

Cute shades and your lamp was a perfect find. I have a Hobby Lobby, too. I love that store.

Jen Orsini said...

Lucky you for scoring that lamp--it would have been yet another project to get such a perfect look from the usual candle stick styles out there!
