Vintage Lamp Shopping

I recently had an office move. While moving between floors I managed to break my vintage white lamp! I tried everything to fix it but I just knew that it would not be the same.

I placed it in our trash can and our wonderful cleaning lady Ms. Brenda saw it. She came right to me and said, "I knew this was yours, no one else in the office would have something like this". She asked me if she could have it to try to fix it. I told her sure as always. I always like to give her things out of my office if I buy something else.

I told her that I would be taking a trip to one of my favorite flea markets (entry) to find a new one. So on Friday night I took a walk through the Beech Grove Emporium and found this beauty below.

It was only $9! I had to get rid of that ugly lamp shade. It was 3 sizes to small and I did not like the color. So I went to Target and while looking for shades I kept thinking, "oh I hope I find a blue one" and I did!

I had to take this off in order to attach the shade to the lamp. No worries I kept it. 

At this point I was holding my breath and crossing my fingers hoping that it would fit. 

My pretty baby blue lamp shade 

I love all the details that it has and the gold bottom. 

Here it is the finished product! I do love it and I think that I will enjoy this lamp for years to come! To my office it goes!
