Diane at http://diane1876.blogspot.com/ is the host of Trash To Treasure Tuesday.Pay her a visit , she has some great TTT.(trash to treasure) finds. Today I have this 1940's hand painted lamp ( per the antique lamp guy I know). I got this at an auction 4 years ago. It was a box lot with about 4 other lamps that needed some repair. The lamp needed to be rewired it also needed a shade. Done deal! I won the bid $1.00 for the box lot. NOW, I really wanted this lamp the other were repaired and I sold them. This WAS my treasure. I rewired it $10.00 for the kit, shade $4.00. Took the base off it wasn't a pretty bottom. The lamp is so pretty (this may not be the best picture of it). I love pink & roses. The Country Victorian-Cottage look. That's just how this lamp turned out.
