White Wednesday ~ Worn & Wonderful

I found a pair of these fabulous and so Frenchy looking vintage lamps at an estate auction just before Christmas and am just now getting them listed in The Vintage Nest boutique. I just love them! The shabby lady statue bust is white, worn and wonderful....... and hand painted with some old worn gold too. Love her poufed hair. This old lamp originally would have had a skirt of some sort but I love the old metal rusty tripod base left just the way it is. It gives the refined French lady a bit of interesting contrast with the old rusted metal and adds a bit of architectural interest too. I think it would be fabulous if the old lamp was left as is and just cover the upper and lower light bulbs with the old (if you can find them) or new beaded bulb covers.

Thanks to Kathleen over at Faded*Charm for hosting this fun day called White Wednesday. You can click right here for more Wonderful White blogs today.




And speaking of White Wednesday, we are getting more of that white stuff tonight. It just keeps coming. I declare, if I didn't know better, I think we moved to Minnesota and someone forgot to tell me. Take care and be good and I'll see you in a few days.

I have her sister....but she is in Pink and not attached to a lamp.

There were 2 at an antique store...I just bought one~and she just sort of hangs out.

As of today she is resting in my dining room :)

What a neat lamp! I see you have been up to so many interesting thigs--love stopping here to check in with you, Lynn!

There you go Lynn commenting on that white stuff, as you call it, ha, ha. I really like the lamp, I saw the head at an estate sale minus the bottom, she is very lovely. Have a nice day. I always go to this one estate sale and they are very pricey, even the second rate things.

Are you dug out of the snow yet, honey? Looks beautiful though.

Hi Lynn, I'm thinkin' I've got to host a get away for all you women living in the midwest, north and east next year. I think you'd love it out here in sunny Arizona with high's in the 70's during the day......yes 70's! Doesn't that sound worth a visit?

Hugs,
Meri

She is darling! Those are always good finds!

Julie said...

Too cool! What a vintage treasure find. Thanks so much for sharing her with us today. I've never seen one like it.

Nola @ the Alamo said...

That is the most unusual lamp I've seen in a long time. It's perfect just the way it is, although I can think of tons of different ideas for skirts!

Faded Charm said...

Very unique lamps and I love your title. Hope you stay safe and warm with all that snow you guys are getting.

Take care,

Kathleen

Crystal said...

Wow, what a beauty. I wonder what the full original lamp looked like. I see someone already scooped her up. I hope they show where they put her.
As far as the white stuff, I have had enough, now. We are in blizzard conditions here. Life will go one and spring is on its way, right??

Amy said...

Her base is so great. A lovely find.
You are having snow, we are having rain.
I love it, but I would rather have snow
