In the Pink!


Hello! I'm playing in Pink Saturday again this week, hosted by Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound. I wasn't able to get around to everybody last week but I did visit a lot of new, beautiful blogs. Nice to meet everybody! Last week, I started visiting blogs from the beginning of the list & then from the end...this week, I'll start in the middle & hopefully make it to everyone's blogs that I didn't get to last week.


I bought a pair of capodimonte style lamps @ a garage sale many, many years ago (long before they worked in any room of my house but they were only $20.00 for the pair...minus the shades!) They have no marks on them so I don't know who they were made by. I only have one displayed & the other sits in closet...I guess I really should find a home for it too.




Not sure this is the right shade for it...what do y'all think? Honestly? I've tried a marabou feather trimmed shade but that wasn't quite right. Should I do more elaborate like this fringed dome or just use a simple bell shade?


Love the "figurines"! What are cherubs called when they don't have wings?



And look how sweet the violets around the base of the lamp are! They're teeny-tiny.


There were over 100 participants in last week's Pink Saturday. Let's go check out all the glorious pink posts...don't forget to say hello to our hostess Beverly!

Morning, Cami! Oh, what a precious little lamp. I guess the little wingless cherubs are just precious little darlings! I like the shade you have on it and I think you did well getting both for $20.
Be a sweete,

I think the fringed dome is perfect. My aunt had a similar lamp, and as I recall, she had sort of an hour glass shade for it trimmed in gimp. But I like what you selected.

Prayers to your son...

XO,

I think the little wingless cherubs are called "putti".

Yours sure are cute! What is campodimonte style I haven't heard that phrase.

Liz said...

They are beautiful! I like the shade that you have, but if you get tired of them then put a sculpted bell shade. I am not sure what they little wingless babies are called... cherubs? cupids?

They're just precious! : )

The Muse said...

I apologize for being late for the Pink Saturday festivities...but I am glad to be reading blogs!

Honestly, In my opinion, the shade fits the piece! And it is so victorian cottage chic!

No matter if they are marked..a great buy!!!!

RobinfromCA said...

Cupids? Or do they always have to have an arrow? Well, wings or not, they're cute! I love the sweet little flowers at the bottom!

Did you ever get a deal on those lamps! They are just gorgeous and, to tell you the truth, I'm just a tad envious!

Hi
I enjoyed seeing your winter decorations. Since I don't live so very far for you, I happen to know you haven't had much real winter. If you are like me, you could use a few more really cold days. I like the cold weather. I don't have out much winter decoration, just some snowmen.

And I am going to look at all the pink today and hope to participate next week.

Happy Weekend.

Riet said...

That is beautiful. I love the tiny flowers around it

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Cami. I just learned about your son in your profile. I will definitely keep you all in my prayers. I totally agree that we can all use prayer.

Your lamp is fantastic - well actually I think it is exquisite. I do think it might make an even stronger statement with a simple silk bell-shaped shade. Be sure to let us know if you change it.

Ginger said...

I like the lamp just the way it is. I've never seen one like it before....very sweet.

CC said...

What a wonderful lamp. I like it just as you have it. Happy belated Pink Saturday and have a lovely week.
