I am currently in the midst of a lighting crisis - I either need new lamps or new shades. I got a new lamp free when we moved into the new place which has a neat wrought iron base - but I hated the giant shade on it! I had to remove it and send it off to Goodwill - but I haven't found anything else I like... sigh. So I started looking at lamps and lighting online - and I believe I am obsessed drum shades! I thought I would share some of the beauties I found with you! (No sponsorship here - just me finding lamps I love!)

This lamp just screams Candace Olson to me - don't you think?
Crystal Ball Table Lamp from JCPenney for $59.99

Love this cut out drum chandi - it is modern and rustic all at the same time.
Metal Web Chandelier from Overstock.com for $83.99

How cute is this little table lamp?  I adore the damask shade!

Stick Lamp with Damask Shade from Target for $16.99

This pleated pendant is so fantastic and is on clearance! 

Pleated Pendant Lamp from West Elm for $89.99

Need a floor lamp?  I think the Moroccan print on the inside of the shade makes this a unique and slightly exotic option over your standard shade.  Best news - it is also on clearance!  
Artesia Taper Floor Lamp from JCPenney for $64.00

Hmm - this chandi is also a little Candace-esque with that crystal finale.  Classic and refined with just a touch of bling!
Fabric 3-light Chrome Chandi from Overstock.com for $87.99

This little desk lamp is super cute.  Love the modern shade!  Bonus - it is polycarbonite not glass so it would be safe to have in an area with tikes that might pull on cords!  Or boys that throw things!
Chrome Trumpet Table Lamp from Walmart for $24.24

Finally - if you already have a lamp you love - this shade is so beautiful.  I think this might be where I am ultimately heading since I can't stop but pick it up and look at it when I am in Target!
Barrel Lamp Shade from Target for $24.99

So there you go!  What is your favorite source for lamps?  I know I have found some great ones at Goodwill before that just need a little TLC and spray paint.  Where else do you shop for affordable lamps and shades?

Awww, thanks for stopping by my humble beginning blog, and being one of my first comments! :)

I love all these lights...they are definitely my style! And Candance Olsen - she's a Canadian decorating icon! :)

I don't know of any frugal place to get lights here, to be honest - maybe Home Depot?? lol

I LOVE the shade from Target (I too cannot get enough damask print!) I've been searching for a new shade for an outdated lamp. Thanks for stopping by my blog, too! :)

I adore the damask shade in the third photo. All of these are way too elegant for our style of home. But they are incredibly lovely.

I just purchased a really nice lamp shade from Ross for $12 on Monday. BOY...that was the best quick change I've made in a long time. My only question was, what took me sooooo long to do it! Yea for me!

You have a great selection there. I feel in love with the same type of shades and fixtures when I spent weeks on lighting last summer. Very tough to find affordable and new -- so thrifts and fleas are the best. But the problem is that the shade usually needs replacing or the lamp needs rewiring (handy if you know how). I went with new. lumens.com had a nice selection and a sale. Thanks for dropping by my blog. We have a glass vessel sink giveaway going on now. Jane F.

Be cautiouѕ wіth ωаshing soԁa and use glоvеs
аs it is exceрtіonally аlkaline.

Thеsе supplieѕ arе fгequently fоunԁ іn all typeѕ of ρгορeгtieѕ, even рeople that aren't intended to be 'green'. As a subject of reality it is these kinds of a extraordinarily-concentrated meal that, until taken in exceedingly tiny portions, it is liable to upset weak digestions.

Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

" Pizza was called (and is still called) tomato pie and pizza pie in certain parts of the States. Net offers two important top toaster oven accessories which are the hanging toaster mound and the rotisserie kit. It didn't help that every pizza recipe I saw online would mention the dreaded "brеad machine.
