new lamp! OMG- I love goodwill!!


Check out - the Hobnail Milk Glass lamp and the crocheted piece I snagged @ Goodwill for $3 total. The lamp shade is one of two I found at an estate sale and planned on making chandeliers with them... however tonight I thought I would give it a try on the goodwill find... Yes, Yes, I know it's a bit large but I still heart it! Tell me whatcha' think!! Honestly - I LOVE YOUR COMMENTS!

I have 2 lamps just like that on each side of my bed. I really enjoy them. Found them both at different garage sales.

Awesome. I like the shade with just the iron cause the shape is nice. I don't think you need the dollie on it, but the lamp is cute...

Hi Valarie,
Its a keeper! I love it and the lamp shade is the perfect touch!.
Just a few weeks ago I purchased a Hobnail Milk Glass lamp from a garage sale and put it in my teacup room. I have always loved milk glass.
Enjoy your day.
P.S. The moonpie faces look like fun and yummy to eat.

I have always like milk glass and I especially enjoy the contrast & texture of the metal shade to the milk glass. Good pairing - good eye. Thanks for sharing.
