I have a thing for lamps and buy them all the time. I love all your shades especially. The Mid Century Modern lamp is my favorite.

It's amazing what you can do with a yard sale lamp, a can of paint, and a new shade. Yours are all great!
Thanks for sharing your light story at Treasure Hunt Thursday.
