Today is the first of April

so I am joining Alison at
The Polohouse
for her
Favorites on the First Party!

And I just happened to have a few favorite lamps to show you…

This new Target lamp is definitely one of my favorites.

Not only do I love the color and shape of the lamp

but I adore the lampshade…

and the inexpensive Target price!

As I mentioned in my recent post,

Spring Vignettes with a Target Lamp,

I tried a few different looks in that space before I got the look I wanted.

Lampshades really can make a difference.

A couple years ago I changed the lampshades

on my bedroom lamps to these pretties from Pottery Barn:

If you want to see the whole room and the before,

see my post – New Lamp Shades.

Just last month, I switched the shade in my son’s room.

I think it looks much fresher now with the gray trimmed drum shade.

It was another inexpensive switch for around $15.00.
I bought the new shade at Lowe’s.

Well, that was enough stalling…

I am off to do more laundry now.
We just spent a week in Grand Cayman and I have tons of unpacking to do.
Hopefully, I will get my pictures downloaded tonight
so I can tell you all about our lovely vacation.
How did that week go so fast?

Do you have any lamps you would like to share?
Head over to Alison’s Favorites on the First Party!

    Your lamp looks so much like one from Ballards that I have had my eye on (love it, not the price tag!) I'll have to check out Target! Thank you for sharing.
