In October I found this ceramic lamp in a corner of an antique shop in Mississippi. It was filthy & the lamp shade needed to be thrown out. I love the shape of the lamp & the peach & brown bands of color. Besides the dirt it was in great condition. Here’s a shot in the middle of cleaning it…I used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (p.s. If you haven’t used one,you are missing out:))

A little elbow grease was all it took to make the lamp look like new. Finding a shade was another story. I went everywhere…bought several…returned them all. One day my friend Tara & I were in “At Home” in Homewood & there it was…the perfect shade. It has a burlap looking texture which pairs well with the style of the lamp.
