~~~I LOVE LAMPS!!!~~~

This morning when I woke up the first thing I saw was my bedside lamp. I love that lamp! It got me thinking about how much I love lamps and how many I have!!! So, I thought I would show you SOME of them!!! This first one is in the dining room, just a small lamp on a side table. BTW, click on the pics if some of them appear to be off center. That happened when I enlarged them for some reason. But if you click on them they appear correctly:):)
 This is in the dining room, on the baker's rack. I bought it in Fl. MANY years ago.
 The dining room round table. This was a gift to me from my son. He had it in his shop. I love this one too!
 Another gift from my son. I guess he knows I love lamps too:)
 These 2 are in the living room on the 2 sofa tables. They are from India and were brought back by my Father-in-law.
 Beautiful hand carved detailing. Hard to dust though:):)
 Found these at Marshalls several years ago. They are on the living room mantle. I couldn't turn it on as it is on a timer.
 A Hummel lamp.
 These are here in my "office". That is my Mother. It is in a shadow box. Can you see that the pin in the shadow box is the pin she is wearing in the picture!
 This is a lamp in the guest room. Just the top of it.
 These 2 are on the bedside tables in the guest room. My FIL got them in Africa. If you follow me you know he was a pilot, and a SHOPPER!!!!! Lucky for me!!!!

 Guest bath. Monkeys!
 This is on my hubby's dresser.

 This si the lamp that I see in the morning. I found these in a shop at the beach several years ago. You all know I LOVE bamboo anything!!!! (The bouguet is my bouquet that I carried at our daughter's wedding last year. Coming up on their first anniversay!!!)
 These are on my dresser.

This is my Mom and me when I was 2 years old. Wasn't she BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!??
 The bridge upstairs.

 Her are 2 lamos that are presently in the kitchen. This one on the hutch in the breakfast room and.....
 This on the counter./ This one is one of my favorites!!!!
 Next week all my summer decor will be put away and FALL will be coming out! I am itching to do it! We are having an anniversary dinner next weekend for our daughte and SIL so I will wait til after that.
So, do you like lamps too? Do you have alot???? Am I crazy....don't ask my hubby:):):) Thanks so much for stopping by! XO, Pinky I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday

  7. Hi Pinky!

    I love lamps and LOVE your collection of them. I prefer lamps and wall sconces to ceiling lights. Your mom is beautiful and you were such an adorable little girl. Thank you for this inspiring post.

  8. Oh my goodness Pinky! You have the most gorgeous international lamps! Each one is such a work of art! These are not only lamps but a "collection"! Mine seem so ho-hum after I have read all about yours. I do have 2 lamps that my father brought back from Japan 40 years ago. Remind me to show them to you tomorrow.
    Pinky I am so impressed with the individual style you have. Don't ever change!!!!
    See you tomorrow, dear friend!

    I'm ready for fall weather with some lower humidity but we have lots of summer weather left for us in the month of September & into October!

    I saw The Help & loved it! It was a great book~ I listened the audio version which was OUTSTANDING! The narrators were cast with the same attention & care that the actors were in the movie!

    Thank you for you visit & sweet comments! Have a great Labor Day weekend :-)

  27. Hi Pinky...

    Girlfriend, you have a fabulous collection of beautiful lamps! So many are very the carved wood lamp from India...sooo beautiful! I also love your birdhouse is a little sad to see them go, isn't it?...but I have been ready for a change of decor and weather! Enjoy your kiddos first anniversary party this weekend, dear friend...and enjoy your autumn decorating! Sooo happy that you came by today...great to hear from you, sweet lady!

    Love ya,

  28. Pinky, a post after my own earth. I love lamps, they have to be special and unique and speak to me.. as I'm sure all of your beautiful ones do... hugs ~lynne~

  29. Pinky, I like lamps but mine aren't as interesting as yours. Your lamps are not just the ordinary plain utilitarian light source, they are really beautiful. The carved ones look like works of art. Enjoyed seeing your collection of lamps. Shannon

  30. Ah, you look like your beautiful mom Pinky!

    I love lamps. I need one new one. You've inspired me.

  31. So happy to hear that your are linking to Potpourri Friday! Thanks for pointing out that broken link. It's fixed now. Funny, the comment was in the spam comments--who knew that birdcage might be a forbidden word. That's the only thing I could think it might be. ;)

  32. Pinky, you have a nice variety of lamps. I really love that huge conch shell. I just found one kind of like it recently. I wonder if there is a lampaholics anonymous!

  33. You really have quote a collection of lamps with each one so unique, from the whimsical to the classic. All are beautiful and I appreciate the eclectic use of so many styles. Thanks for sharing, Pinky.

    Thanks you for linking to Potpourri Friday. Your participation makes the party better. I appreciate you!

  34. Wow, you do have a collection of lamps. I can't wait to explore more of your blog, and can't wait for you to get your fall decor out. I am following so that I can come back and check things out! Thanks for coming by my place.

  35. Hi Pinky, I must say I have never seen more beautiful and unique lamps collected in one place, I can't decide which one I like the best. A few would definitely work in my home. I think the ones from India are so cool. Visiting from Honey's blog - 2805. xo,

  36. You certainly do have a lot of lamps...I love lamps also. I have a few milk glass that I love, I love the lamps that have a nightlight option on the bottom. I think lamps add charm to a room. Love the pic of you and your mom, you are both beautiful.

  37. All your lamps are just lovely, Pinky but I think that photo of you & your Mom is positively Priceless! She truly was beautiful & I see a very strong resemblance in your photo.

    Our guest room could use some new lamps & you've inspired me to go hunting. Thanks!

    Have a blessed weekend!

  38. Love the picture of you and your mom , you got her good looks . Your decor is so pretty , wish I had your talent .

  39. do have a lot of unique lamps. What an exciting collection of lamps you have! I loved viewing your beautiful lamps and could never choose a favorite, but I do love the Hummel lamp......a true treasure.

  40. Hi Pinky...

    Thanks for sharing this sweet post about all of your GORGEOUS and unique lamps with us for the Sunday Favorites party this week! I sooo enjoyed seeing your lovely collection of lamps again!

    Warmest autumn wishes,

    PS...the carved lamp from India is still my favorite! Hehe!
