Friday Favorites

I have seen several people post about some of their favorite things on Friday's. I decided to follow suit. Something that I just love and wish I had more of is LAMPS! I love at night when the lights are low and my house is lit only by lamps. I love reading by a lamp. I love the shape of a lamp and how they look dressed. Here are a few of our lamps we have lighting our life.

My monkey lamp is a bit of whimsy in our formal living room. I LOVE IT!

The lamp that greets you when you come in our home.

This picture does not do this lamp justice. It is a humpty dumpty lamp in Sam's room.

My friend, Janet, gave us this for a housewarming gift. I changed a portion of the shades to leopard to match my kitchen.

A simple lamp in my family room...love the fabric...hate the base.

We have had this lamp in our family room since we moved in this house.

This is a Walmart find that I recovered the shade.


Added the buttons to this lampshade for an unexpected touch.

My friend Brittany game me this lamp.

I have two of these on our bedroom dresser. They are so romantic looking.
My laundry room lamp. Bad pictures sorry....overcast day.
A Goodwill find this week. I am going to spray paint it and put it in the playroom with a FUN shade. I am thinking pom-pom fringe.
Thanks for checking out my lamps. My sister is coming down tonight to work on some crafts and sewing. I will have pics to post tomorrow. Have a nice Friday.

Oh my goodness you do have a lot of lamps! I love them all! The rooster lamp is my favorite!
I was just sewing last night using my lamp to light up my sewing area instead of the huge chandelier above me. Lamps make things feel more warm and cozy!
Have a great weekend,
Robin~♥
