You Can Have One Too...

"Click on photo to enlarge detail"

You can have one too...Just read on. A solid wood lamp salvaged in appearance with a look that it has acquired a patina from years of function and use, one giving this French chest individuality in a rural French country house. This lamp adds rural rustic elegance of ornamentation with a definite shape that one would enjoy looking at.

Treasured objects are arranged around it with a glow of light calming the design of the soulful depths of the room. A rustic lamp at home in my French rural style country sitting area.

I consider each piece that goes into a room separately, and then bringing them all together making them blend in with a less then forced way. Thank you Target for making this lamp an easy and natural blend in my French rustic country house for only $54.99 Shade not included. The bridge and harp I added to the lamp myself to better suit future lamp shades.

Inspiring Rustic French from unexpected places.

I am totally bowled over - that lamp base is from Target?! Of course the setting is all-important, but even so, what a find Dore.

There are treasures found in even Target! I have not seen this one. It fits right in with your french rustic countryside style. I was reading old post on my blog this morning under the label 'rustic' and so many about you were in there! Lovely thoughts. ox

Such a beautiful lamp, Dore. I can't believe it's Target but then again I can. Just remembered that my favorite petite silver lamp came from Target. I just love your French rustic country style. said...

Woow super..I like it...Dore.

Oh, Dore you have such a gift. The lamp is absolutely perfect for the room in scale,and design. Even the wood is the perfect tone. I can't believe you found it at Target.
Great eye!
Hugs and Happy Mother's Day,

Seawashed said...

Ahh, you like the Baleen Morning too. I would have it as my first song too but I receive so much feedback from ladies who love hearing the sea.

Seawashed said...

I designed a new look for my shop and made new business cards a month ago. It definetly suites me better...white, grey, and simple. Glad you like it. I sent you an email earlier. ox

This lamp is so beautiful! I must check Target to see if I can find one. Thank you for sharing. It looks perfectly at home in your gorgeous place!

Have a wonderful weekend!

God Bless,

Tamra said...

Dore, I began reading, thinking you were now creating and selling these fab lamps. I literally laughed out loud when I read that you bought it at Target!!

I guess I should take an extra minute to browse instead of zipping in for socks and undies and dashing out the door! lol

Gorgeous lamp, great job!


Christel said...

Dear Dore, Not sure how I missed this post, but so glad I decided to search you out this evening. I wanted to, and needed to enduldge myself in a fine wine of sorts...yours and Anitas blogs! AAHHH I do indeed feel better, like a breath of spring morning air, fresh with dew!

Love this lamp, of course your setting is what makes it even more special and alluring. Who would have ever thought..Target?..they just went up on my cool meter!

Hope you had a beautiful Mothers Day. I did, my sons cooked breakfast for all the moms in the family, and my daughter cleaned up the mess afterwards! Our daughter, Jamie Lee made the most delightful petit fours! tiny wedding cakes, with the moistest, softest cake I have ever eaten, topped with fresh raspberries, kiwis, strawberries, and chocolate. She made everything from scratch. The thing is, and I should be ashamed,..I had no idea she cook bake so well, and make such beautiful treats! Anyway, it was a lovely day for me, I am a lucky gal. xoxox Christel
