~Antique Lamp in the Living Room~

Hi there friends...Happy Wednesday!
I have to tell ya... my absolute favorite antique store is the one I found in Connecticut near the hubbies back doctor. I never leave there empty handed... their prices are great too!!
They never disappoint...they always have great furniture and salvage pieces along with other goodies.
~~~
On this last trip I came home with this pretty antique lamp.


I thought the small shell shades looked so pretty on it.
I had the owner check the lamp to make sure it worked before I brought it home.
  I did a happy dance (in my head of course) when I saw the light come on!



The lamp was not the only change here...I pulled the red urn I ordered from Luckett's last year out of storage and added an ivy plant to it. 
I love the new look on this chest!
A before and after...


Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'm having company today for lunch so I better go get myself ready!
