My French Lamp "Le Progres"





This is my favorite lamp, I bought it at one of my fave
antique stores in this area years ago, she was known for her glassware,
but had several lamps at any given time. A year or so before,
I'd bought another  gorgeous lamp from her, and one day while visiting
her shop, she told me she had a lamp from the same estate
where my other lamp had come from, and if I was interested
in it, she'd sell it to me! Well needless to say, the second I layed eyes
on it, I knew it had to be MINE!!!

I looove it!

It didn't have the fabulous green shades, they were a garage sale find
from an antique dealer that occasionally had garage sales, it
truly was my lucky day to find two beautiful green shades that
FIT my beautiful French lamp!
