New Lamp for the Hall Table

I mentioned in my last post that I did a little post-holiday sale shopping during my vacation from work. In addition to buying ornaments for next year's theme tree ( and a couple of Christmas gifts for next year) I also spotted a sweet little lamp at the same place I bought all my Christmas ornaments. I also noticed that all lamps and lighting were advertised as being 20 % off, so the sweet little lamp came home with me.

With the recent addition of the spinet piano in our front hall, we needed to do some re-arranging and this hall table, formerly next to the front doors, is now occupying a space next to the staircase. I had wanted to put a small lamp on this table for a long time, but the lack of any nearby electrical outlets in it's former location had rendered the search and purchase of a lamp to be somewhat pointless. With a move to a new location, the   problem was solved; I could now have a lamp.

I liked the classical urn shaped base of the lamp, and the cream and pale gold colored damask pattern shade, with bead droplet trim; it seemed to match the colors of the hallway perfectly and it looked very pretty as well. And at 20% off, it was practically a steal!

Thanks for stopping by!
