Lamp Love

As I travel around in Blogland, I see that a lot of you love lamps.   Almost never meet a lamp you don’t like, right? 
My mom was a lamp lover too.  She could never pass up a good lamp at a garage sale.
Me?   I didn’t get the “lamp-a-holic” gene.
Frankly, I get the heebee-jeebees when I need to buy lamps because I rarely see lamps I like.    When I do find a lamp that appeals to me, it usually costs a bazillion dollars.  You know…”champagne taste on a beer budget.”    This was one exception.
Earlier this week, I visited a blog where someone had just purchased a new lamp from Target.  I took one look at her picture of it and immediately felt those rare and elusive feelings of  “lamp love.”  Unfortunately, I can’t tell you which blog it was  because I was grabbing my keys and rushing out the door  to Target way too fast.
HAD. TO. GET. THAT. LAMP. NOW!

Believe me, this photo does not even begin to do this lamp justice!  My lousy photography skills don’t adequately show the pretty natural linen-like shade and my picture makes the shade look way too big for the green glass base when, in fact, it’s just perfect. 
I {{{{HEART}}}} this lamp!
I plan to use it in the house in Hooterville family room.  Right now I don’t have any tables in the room to put it on but as soon as I decide on end tables and  a coffee table for the room, I’ll show it to you again in it’s new setting.  (The new slip covered sofa, chair and ottoman  I ordered for the family room  have come in so I’ll be showing you those soon too.)
If you are interested in this lamp, you might want to visit your nearest Target store pronto.  I bought the only one my Target had.   And just FYI, I found it in the area with the home decor accessories, not in the lamp section.  It was also available here, but they appear to be sold out, although it says you can sign up to be notified when (if ?) they are available again.
On another note…   Daughter’s modular home is  suppose to be delivered next  week.  They’re bringing it in two halves through the center of our neighbor’s orange grove, which should be interesting to watch.  Of course, I’ll be out there with my camera.  :)

Edited to add:  Thanks Gloria! It was Kim’s blog where I first saw the lamp.

That lamp is amazing! I saw it on somebodies blog today, too. But, because we don't have Target in my country north of yours, I couldn't run out and get it. I certainly would if we had it!!!

Hmmm...must be more than one blogger out there that has this lamp, Willow, because I don't think I've ever visited Cozy Little House before. But thanks for directing me over there because I've just found another interesting and creative blogger friend! :)

I saw the same blog post and this lamp is amazing Tarjay does it again!! Boy do they have an amazing marketing team or what!! I wanted to thank you for you insight and info on my comment blog post today. You touched on some really good points. Ove 100,000 a day, Oh my that is crazy. I agree never take anything personally unless of course it is directly directed at YOU. I have been in this business for too long to let that affect me too much. Design is soooo subjective. Glad you got the lamp!! Thanks again for the visit,Happy Weekend Kathysue
