Tuesday Morning Greek Key Lampshade

Monday, May 30, 2011

On more than one occasion, I've shared my passion/obsession with pretty lamps. Normally when you purchase a vintage lamp, it either comes with the original tattered and fly poop stained shade or no shade at all.  This means I'm always on the prowl for lampshades and I can't wait to share the beauties I found at Tuesday Morning over the weekend.



I got a pair of these big gorgeous lampshades with brass Greek Key detailing.


If you live in Chattanooga, I left you one!

Also, I put a bid in on this pair of stools from here.


Sorry that's so blurry, I snagged the image from their website.

And tears were shed this weekend, too!



Congratulations, Alyssa.  You make me so proud!!

Kim,
Great shades! I get a lot of my lamps, well most of them from yard sales and am always looking for good shades too. Found a lovely linen one with brown trim, $5.00 and a chocolate drum shade, $8.00 at the Flea this weekend. Nothing better then cool finds for good prices! Congrats on your adorable graduate! Time flies, my youngest just finished her freshman year of collage!

Love that greek key on the lampshade. I might have to add some trim to a lamp in our bedroom that looks like that....the shade is so blah.
Congrats to the new grad!

Aw. Congratulations to your daughter. I just can't imagine what a bittersweet moment this is for your family! (My daughters are so young, it really is difficult to imagine.)

Yay for Tuesday morning, no? 'Fly poop.' Haha!
