The Granny Lamp



Pin It

Hello, my darling granny lamp! You are the joy of my life! I've been obsessed with you for quite some time... I used to see you in the pages of beautiful home magazines, in eclectic interiors, in vintage revival coffee shops and in contemporary boho abodes... I traveled my home city back and fourth looking for you! I never missed an update from the local vintage shop and I made sure to hit all the antique fairs in the past year and a half. And from the first time I laid my eyes on you in my favorite shop, I knew we were meant to be together!




I will always cherish the fact that you cost only a fraction of the [outrageous] prices of the other granny lamps I've met along the way. You are the perfect size for my living room! You could use a little more color, but that's just one DIY project away. And my friends say you're too drab for my style, but only I know how long I've been dreaming about you! Come join me for a warm cup of rooibos tea and be my charming friend in the long nights ahead of us :)

    1. Ha ha, I'm so glad you've noticed the rug, Sandy! Also the teapot is made of traditional ceramics from the county of Harghita and I think it's perfect with the granny lamp.

  7. Your home is so so lovely! Laurean and I love your blog! (It's about time we told you). I may or may not be the one that hyperventilates about home decor and DIY, but he gets pretty excited about nice stuff too.. BTW, the teapot is adorable. and now I want tea.

    1. Multumesc din suflet! Sunteti invitati oricand la un ceai :) Si ceainicul e cumparat de la targul de oale, daca tin eu bine minte e facut de niste mesteri din Harghita.

    1. The interesting part is that prior to discover my beautiful lamp, I almost gave up hunting and I was saving money to pay ten times the price! Talk about divine intervention :)
