My Fabulous New Find!








One day not too long ago I received a phone call from a friend of mine who has a booth in an antique mall. She went on to describe to me a floor lamp that she had acquired recently and she wanted to know if I wanted "first crack" at it before she put it in her booth for sale. Not expecting it to be as pretty as she described, I decided to go down to the mall and check it out.

What I saw was this gorgeous lamp and one that I certainly didn't expect to find in this area of the country. This is a "California" lamp as I call it. You know...the kind you only find at the Rose Bowl Flea Market or some intriguing place like that! The lamp has six long taper candle stye lights. The candles are actually made out of hard wood with little silicone bulbs on the ends. The lamp has amazing porcelain roses on the column, around each candle cup and on the base. Well, as you can tell, the lamp is now sitting in our home and I'm so delighted that I decided to come home with it. Something like this is very hard to find in the area that I live and it's a treasure that I won't part with any time soon! ~Stacy~
