Don't you love it when you find lovely things?

I hunt around every now and again at Goodwill and Salvation Army and the like because you never know what you're going to find there, and sometimes-- every now and again you find something really lovely and unusual like this:

$5!  It had a really awful lampshade, but I replaced it with that lovely one in a very lightly metallic champagne color (also $5).

Slightly gaudy?  yes.  Anything with gold, glitter frost, and a large crystal base is bound to be.  But it is just a table lamp after all.  If it were 7 feet tall it might be too much, but as it is it's just right.  It's golden and sparkly and just right.

This has lived in the front room so far, but when we were scraping and painting in there, I brought it into the dining room and put it on the end of the sideboard.  Magic ensued.  We don't really need a light there, but it looks so lovely with the butterflies from the circus print!
