Getting Cozy with Little Lamps

 I'm hoping this post is finding everyone safe and sound during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  My thoughts are with all of those affected by this devastating force of nature. 

Happy Tuesday!

I have this addiction to little lamps.  
They follow me home from Estate Sales and then I have to find homes for them.  I don't mind though, especially this time of year when it is getting darker much earlier.  They make me feel cozy and warm when I see just a bit of light brightening up a corner or a small nook.  Come along through the house and I will show you my little lamp collection.
 This little lamps sits in the kitchen on our built in buffet hutch.  I picked it up at an Estate Sale in the most gorgeous house.  It looks like a ceramic covered dish doesn't it?
It's in good company with my other Estate sale finds on display.

 This itty bitty is in the Powder Room.  The butterflies caught my eye when I first saw it and it beckoned me to bring it home.  Our Powder Room can be quite dark so this little lamp comes in handy.  I like to have them all on timers so they come on at dusk.

 Another tiny lamp sits on my Wine cabinet in the Living room. 
The timers really work well in this room.  I often forget to turn on the lights and the so this little lamp just gives off a soft glow in the room.
  This little guy found his way into my Library/Office area.  I love the vintage green glass on the shade.  I could probably polish it up some but I like the old patina of the brass.
And here is my latest find!  
It's not that little but I do love this Bouillotte lamp that I found this weekend.  I love that you can put real candles in the bottom.  I can cozy up to that!  It's sitting on my Entry table waiting for the rest of the table to get a vignette going...

It's almost Halloween!

Cindy, I love all of your little lamps! Lamp lighting is so nice in the evenings. You have yours displayed beautifully!

Cindy they're all so pretty! I love little lamps too, they're so much cozier then the bright over head lighting.

Cindy - besides being bloggers and loving estate sells, I see we have another thing in common. I love itty bitty lamps too. But you have several more than I do. I just picked one up at thrift sale a few weeks ago. I gotta do some work to it, but I can't wait to get it out and put it to use.

love all your lamps and think putting them on a timer is a great idea. I'm making a shopping list of things I need to do this too.

I have an area where I need a Little lamp that would let me use at least a 75 watt bulb.. seeing yours has inspired me.
