I finally bought lampshades for my grandmother's lamps and put them in the living room. After my grandmother died last August, her home was cleaned out by the family and a yard sale followed. This pair of lamps were put into the yard sale. I was trying very hard at the time, not to bring more stuff into my house, but I just had to bring home these lamps. They are hand-painted and signed simply "Mary".
This wonderful kitchy metal tray also came from my grandmother's house. I saved it from a box slated to go to Goodwill.
I brought this piece of fabric home from a little antique store just the other day. I love the trees and castles on it. The piece is 36" wide and over a yard long, unfortunately someone cut a hole in the middle of it. Still, it's great for quilt pieces or any small craft and I only paid $1.00 for it.
This is my first time playing along on 'It's A Very Cherry World!'s' Rednesday. Check out all the others on her blog.
