Marie Antoinette

Today, I wanted to share with you a picture of a lamp that my Granny passed along to me. When I was a little girl, I used to sit and gaze at this lamp. Wondering who she was, where she was going and what it would be like to be her. I did not recognize who it was for many years. I always thought it was Cinderella. Now, I believe it is Marie Antoinette.
Isn't she just lovely? I want to get the lamp rewired so I can use it again. It is just beautiful when it is lit. Hope you are having a great day.

Your Grandmother's lamp is beautiful, and it does look like Marie. Take it and rewire it right away so that you can enjoy it everyday!

What a beautiful lamp! My husband has rewired our lamps without any problems. You can get the kit to rewire it at Lowes and Home Depot.

OH what a beautiful lamp. She is so gorgeous, I can see why when you were younger that she looked like Cinderella. What a lovely family treasure.

How'd I miss this? It is beautiful and all the more so since it's passed down by your Granny!
Happy weekend.
