Lamp Love!

Pin It Now!

I'm so in love with this lamp from The Bella Cottage!  It's a vintage porcelain lamp that has been rewired.  
Love this lampshade with creamy white paper roses!  Just gorgeous!
I love everything about it...the shape, the color, the roses.
This lamp just speaks to me.  It's out of my budget, but I can dream...


Julia at Hooked on Houses is having a "Hooked on Friday" party, please visit to see some other goodies

(this is not a paid advertisement~just something I found that I love and wanted to share with all of you)

Hi Cindy! Those are beautiful lamps! You have the best taste :) Since we are dreaming, I'll take two of those for my bedroom ~ Have a beautiful day ~ xo Joy

JEWEL said...

Just beautiful - and so right for your home. I would try and duplicate these, somehow, I know they won't be the same, but it would be a fun project!

Risa said...

super cute! DH would never go for Shabby Chic in our house--too girly. So I live vicariously through your blog :-)

Diana said...

Oooh...that's so pretty! Great find! Maybe you can find something similar one day? Or, it will go on sale? Here's to wishful thinking! :)

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

How beautiful! I can see them in your home too Cindy....

That has your name written all over it, but I bet you can find something just as nice but a lot less!

Jan and Tom's Rose Haven said...

I agree, both that it's BEAUTIFUL...and out of my BUDGET, too!

I viewed her site...and saw some other BEAUTIFUL items!!!

~Blessings,
Jan

ps...have fun dreaming and figuring out a way to do this project...I hear those wheels turning from here!

char72 said...

Wow. I agree with you. That is a dream lamp. You've got me dreaming too.

Your lamp love certainly qualifies for Julia's Hooked On Fridays. That lamp would be perfect in your home.

Andrea said...

I'm not sure what I like more, the lamp or the shade! I wonder if you could make teeny coffee filter roses and glue them on a lampshade.

Dream Mom said...

Very pretty. I love the shade.

I found a vintage lamp for #4.99 at Goodwill after dropping off a donation. It is cream, with a curved base and raised roses (all tone on tone) with a cream drum shade with gold piping. It was so feminine, I had to have it. It had the manufacturer on the bottom and it turned out the lamp was from the fifties. I got very lucky.

Reading your blog has inspired me so much to start taking on some "pretty" projects for my own home.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

I can hear your wheels turning in your brain Cindy. You can copy that lamp girl, I know you can !

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Oh, how pretty! You don't see lamps like that much any more, do you? Thanks for joining my blog party and sharing it with us! :-)

Kim@ForeverWherever said...

Oh, such pretty photos! I can see why you would dream about that lamp!

cityfarmer said...

This calmed me right down.

Stop over and see my latest "find"

TattingChic said...

That is absolutely lovely, really! I would love something like that! :)

Charla said...

When I first saw it, I thought, look what she has done with that lamp! You are so creative, I am sure you can invent one on your own. Thanks for sharing.

Sincerely Yours said...

Hey Cindy! I'll bet you could easily duplicate this look!!!! It is gorgeous, so feminine and fresh! Have a great weekend - Sincerely, Jeannette

Debbie said...

Ooooo La La - LOVE IT! Everything about it too, so much that I don't know where to begin! I can see why you swoon over every single detail.

Wishing you a blessed New Year!

Debbie

ann said...

Gayle said...

How beautiful! Perfect for a romantic home! (I found you through Hooked on Houses.)

Susan said...

Beautiful lamp...but I bet you could come up with something creative and just as pretty!

Mia said...

That's very pretty. I particularly like the shade.

just a little bit shabby said...

Hi Cindy,
I really like the shade! I think you could duplicate it fairly easily. I particularly like the small roses. Have a good week end.

Amy said...

I totally love that lamp too Cindy. It is so romantic and elegant. I could picture that in your home for sure. You have very good taste! Amy :)

Lorri said...

Hi Cindy,
As talented as you are you could make this lamp. Find a nice creamy base, and I know you could transform a regular shade into this one. It may not look exactly like it, but I know you could make it beautiful. I love your blog and read it everyday. Thanks for all of your wonderful ideas.
Lorri

Pat@MyTatteredElegance said...

That lamp is out of this world. I love your taste. Gives me something to think about.
Keep dreaming, some dreams do come to pass.
Smiles,
Pat

Pink Slippers said...

Oh how i could sit curled up in a warm and cozy blanket, with a cup of tea and a good book--not reading of course, but staring at that pretty lamp.

Annette @ Designs By A Rose said...

I love the lamp it's gorgeous and will definitely fit into your home. I have faith in you, just post a pic of your version when you make it, I know you will...

My friend and I ran by an antique store while we were at lunch, guess what I bought...a lamp! The shade is cream and the base is a light pink. I bought it thinking I could recover it. I come back and check my favorite blogs and I find your pic of the lamp...karma???

desiree@lookiloos said...

Cindy,
That lamp is so you. It would be a perfect compliment to your living room or your bedroom!

ann~vintage whisper said...

Cindy, your post is gorgeous as is your blog!

jeanne said...

Hello Cindy, I came over from Beverly's blog and your dream lamp is gorgeous. The all white look is so clean and lovely to look at. I think Beverly wants that lamp. She fell in love with it!!!

Hugs...Jeanne

Debbie P said...

Cindy, I LOVE that lamp, it's beautiful. It would be a lamp that you would have, and love, for the rest of your life. Whatever it costs, worth every penny.

Anonymous said...

Holy Cow $390.- It sure is a beauty, though. Maybe it'll inspire us to glue together a vase to a base and glue pretty roses to a creamy white shade... You've already got the wiring part down :)
Thanks for sharing the website - I just love to browse and dream...

Have a great weekend,
Karin

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Now thats a BEAUTY, just GORGEOUS! I'm sure if you look around a little bit, I bet you can find something similar with a reasonable price. I know things like that happens to me quite a bit.

Glenda said...

That is a beautiful lamp. Shabby Chic has a large lamp that has a similar look on the bottom.

It would be out of reach for both of us. Time to search the thrift stores again......

Ciao

Brenda@View From The Pines said...

Yep, it truly looks just like you. Would look perfect in your place.

Olive Rue said...

Cottage Rose said...

Hello Cindy; I love that lamp too. It is just so gorgeous looking. I would love to have one in my home.

Have a great weekend

Sher's Creative Expressions said...

What, you don't have an extra $390 to blow on a lamp? GULP!! That is very pricey!! I'm sure you will be duplicating this very soon with your thift store finds. I just feel it!!

Blessings,

Sher

Donna @ Party Wishes said...

Gorgeous lamp! Bella Cottage is only 1/2 hour from my house! I bought my tea cart from her and furniture appliques.

Thanks again for sharing-have a great weekend!

Any projects planned?
Donna

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Oh, Cindy, my grandmother had TWO lamps exactly like that!! The shades were slightly different, but the bases were the same. I loved those lamps! Thanks so much for sharing that pic. It brings back many sweet memories for me. And I think you ought to splurge & buy it!!

Big TX Hugs,

Wonderful lamp. Amazing beauty.

Essemia said...

Yes, this lamp was great.
Hope you have a nice weekend.
love Elzie

Mary said...

Cindy, It is a beautiful lamp but I'll bet you find something similiar while your thrifting. I bet you could recreate the flowers and glue them on to a lamp with a similar shape.
Have a great weekend!

Izabelka said...

WOW!!!!
It's beautiful :)
I love it!!!

Couture de Papier said...

Hi Cindy..gorgeous!..I found a vintage lamp with hand pin tucked lampshade I am re-creating! I finally voted on HGTV for you! 17 degrees wish I was there..big snowstorm coming tonight and tomorrow.I was given a couple of gorgeous furniture pieces I am going to paint..probably not till spring..sigh..LOL Denise

ksarra said...

Cindy, you are so creative, I know you can use this lamp as inspiration, and come up with something equally beautiful. The lampshade part should be easy, after all you already know how to make the paper roses (time consuming, but easy, right?) As for the lamp, even if you attached roses somehow, the white paint would unify the whole thing. Good luck!

Berlin Deluxxe said...

I could see why you liked it :)
Thanks for sharing this with us♥

Shabbee Chick said...

Love. It.

Tara said...

Cindy

This lamp is so lovely...and I took a olook at your 2008 projects as I witnessed your working on them all year. You really are such a talent and inspiration to others. your home is gorgeous and says come in and put up your feet. Warm and wonderful!

Gail McCormack said...

I too love the lamp, simple yet elegant, I want one too Cindy!! Mind you "want" not "need".

villa extra said...

this lamp is too good to be true......I think this must be one of the kinds they have in Haeven...

Donna said...

Cindy - that is really pretty! If you have a Target store close to you, they have the prettiest reed diffusers that come with white ceramic vases embossed with white flowers. My daughter bought one that looks to me like a lily design, but they also had a gorgeous dimensional rose reed diffuser/vase that had the same type of 'look' as the lamp you posted. At our store, they were on an end cap near the candle aisle. Have a great week!!... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage

Southern Lady's Vintage said...

Nice!!

Elizabeth G. said...

Ooohhh!! Thanks for sharing this. I actually have a lamp much like this one. I want to add roses to my lampshade. They are so beautiful!!!

Thank you, thank you for sharing this!

Blessings,
Elizabeth

Beverly said...

Cindy, I have been dreaming of this lamp since the day you posted it. I've even talked about it at work. I need to erase it from my brain.

I'll go vote for you on RMS........

Andrea said...

I don't know how much this lamp was because I couldn't find it on their web site, but I bought a pair of these for $25 (yes, $12.50 each) in Huntington, WV, in December. They just had plain shades, though. I love this shade!
