Lamps ~ Little Works of Art



~ LAMPS ~




Both functional and decorative, 

lamps are often works of art.




An eclectic mix can 

add visual interest to a space.




Simplicity of Wood




Whimsey of a Figure




Touch of Color




Elegance of Crystal




 Hand Painted Details




Texture of Carved Alabaster




Vintage ~ Traditional ~ Contemporary





Lamps offer warmth and a 

special touch to the aesthetic of one's home.

  5. Sarah, I am a lamp lover, and you really have some beauties. Oh my! That carved Alabaster is incredible. I love the painted roosters on the base of one of them too. Of course, I enjoyed seeing your accessories around them too. All of that wonderful French pottery. You have accessorized the areas around your lamps so beautifully. laurie

  11. Hi Sarah~

    I love your lamps!
    Your alabaster lamp is such an unusual color. Gorgeous!

    So many great ones to choose from, but I must say that I am especially falling for the alabaster URN! What is it about that shape!

    Noticed the plaid shade too.

  13. All your lamps are wonderful. If I HAD to choose a fav, it would be the hand painted rooster one. :) However, they are all lovely.
    Your post reminded me that, somewhere in my drafts, I have a post with all MY lamps...most of them are packed away or given away now but maybe I can find my old post.

    On a different note, thanks so much for the hug today. I needed it.

  26. What a wonderful collection of lamps, Sarah. I especially like the rooster ones...I had a rooster lamp once...bought it on a trip and dropped it at the airport and broke it into a hundred pieces :( The right lamp can be difficult to come by and it looks like you have got quite a gift for choosing some great ones.

  34. I really hate that I missed Alison's link party. I really wanted to participate, but I just didn't feel up to it. I love little lamps scattered throughout rooms because they warm-up dark corners in rooms. You have so many pretty lamps, Sarah. I love the carved alabaster one....it is stunning (they all are....the alabaster one is my favorite)! :D

    Thanks so much for linking up to My Happy List!
