Pink Saturday! - Vintage Lamp


Today is Pink Saturday and our hostess is Beverly At How Sweet the Sound.
Last week while I was at my Mom's house she told me she was cleaning out a closet and asked if I wanted this "old Lamp" she was going to throw away. When she took me into the back bedroom, I almost fell over and yelled at her, "Don't you dare throw that away!" I told her I would take it and go buy a new lampshade for it. I remember this lamp in our living room as I was growing up.
Here is a close up of the pretty pink flowers that adorn the front of the lamp. I only see one tiny chip on it, it is in pretty good shape for being almost 60 years old!
I just love the knob on the top of the lamp that hold the shade on. It has such a vintage look to it! I also love the shape of the base of the lamp. It reminds me of a vintage vase with handles!

I have a similar lamp that I purchased at a yard sale for a $2 the flowers on mine are blue. I had no idea how old it was or any history. Thanks for posting the lovely lamp. The shade you added looks fabulous.

Happy PS

Isn't it funny - the things folks don't want any more?
I really like it, too.

Have a great day!

Pink Saturday in the spring, with all the little bunnies, and kitties, and chickies has me on a cute and sweet high! I ♥ spring!

Thanks so much for sharing this week. Each and every blog makes me smile or jot down a recipe or think, "I can do that".

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Ann.

Ooh, I'm so glad you rescued that wonderful lamp. You need to visit every time your mother decides to clean out.

I don't blame you, I would grabbed that in a heart beat. Just be glad I wasn't there or I would have taken it away from you. Hugs, Rosemarie

Lucky you got that lamp before your mom threw it out. Beautiful. I love the finial at the top too.

Sherri S said...

What a pretty lamp! Glad you 'saved' it from the trash bin. Happy Pink Sat!

Nana said...

I have a lamp in my living room that is almost identical to that one. It was my husband's grandmothers. My MIL was going to take it to a thrift store and I couldn't let her do it.

CC said...

Oh MY!! Such a beautiful lamp..I love the roses and the vase look of it. It's wonderful. Happy Pinks and have a lovely week.

Chatelaine said...

Nice save! Can't believe your mom was throwing it out!

Mimi Sue said...

You are so lucky. Love that lamp. It'd be so perfect in my guest room. The plumber's truck is hilarious. No way would I want to drive it though! Mimi

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

I'm glad your mom reminded you 'bout it and you decided to keep it. Not only is it pretty but it's collected stories from your childhood, I bet. Good luck on finding the right lamp shade to match. or maybe you can dress the old one or paint it :-)
