~ Let There Be Light...and Color! ~

I was so busy all weekend that I didn't make it here to say Happy Easter!  I hope that each of you and your loved ones had a very blessed and fun day.  I had my family here and it was great! I love cooking for others.
I finally found a lamp that "turned me on" for a dark corner. It was on sale at Steinmart plus I had a coupon for 20% off.  That's the kind of buy I like!  It's red...of course, right?  :-) It has a rustic look with the touches of greenish/turquoise on the handles and around the base. I love the shade too....a tan linen.  Let me provide a disclaimer too for the quality of pics ~

A little bit better view of the base ~ although blurry.

And another of the base ~

As most of you are aware, I recently moved. It's taken me longer to decorate here for some reason.  I am in the mood now to get 'er done so hopefully I can share more pics soon!

Very pretty Pat! I love the warm red and the way it looks like a tuscan style vase. Great find. Your home is looking beautiful I'm sure. Show us more anytime. It is always fun to see others decorating ideas.

Warmly, ~Melissa :)
