Mad Hatter Lamps

Do you find Marshall's, HomeGoods and TJ Maxx hard to resist? 
The other day I went in to Marshall's to return something and saw two lamps like this. A little funky and just the right color for my bedroom.

You all know my bedroom is pretty traditional and I've been wanting to add a little contemporary items to my style.

 I have to say in my defense that I've been looking for some replacements for our current lamps for several years. Here's a photo of the old lamps in our bedroom. Will show you an updated photo later ~ there's  a big pile of laundry, etc. on my bed right now!

I think I bought the pair of these old lamps at The Home Depot many years ago as a set for $30.

Now the plaque behind the lamp definitely needs to be moved to the left and down a little, but I think I like my new Mad Hatter lamps!

Do you have a favorite store that you can't resist?

Happy Friday!


Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special


  1. This room is so beautiful, and so restful! I just love it :) I love the colors and the texture. It is so elegant. Well done :)



  2. Change is always good Pam... and honestly I like your new one more than your old... The base of lamp is more appealing and they look beautiful... very good choice ...

  3. Hi Pam, first off you have a beautiful bedroom. Now on to the lamps I love them, the shape, the color and especially the shade. I can't resist those stores either and I never come out empty handed!! Have a great weekend, Martina

  4. LOve the new lamps! I went to Marshalls the other day with a blogging friend and we found ALOT of stuff between us!!! I love Marshals and TJ!!!!

  5. Love your lamps and yes I love all three. They are all about 10 miles away or I would be there all the time. Your bedroom is stunning. Hugs, Marty

  6. Neat looking lamps. And, yes I like all of these places! They are hard to resist.

    Thanks for your comment and I have just happily become your follower.

  7. OH I LOVE the new lamps!!! I think our Marshall's & TJ Maxx must not be very good because I never find anything there.

  8. Ooooh, love those lamps!!!! Our TJMax and Marshalls isn't that good :/

  9. Loves it! I can't resist any and all...

  10. Ohhh, me likey! You won't believe it but my next post (whenever that may happen) will probably be about the funky contemporary coffee table I found in there this week for chump change. Loves me some HomeGoods, definitely.

    p.s. When you're done with your dining chair slipcovers, can you do some for my two ugly brown pleather chairs? I'd even spring for lunch if you would!

  11. A good reminder that interesting lampshades can make a real statement.

  12. Hey Pam! It's ridiculous how excited I get to go to those stores. I can get lost for hours.
    Your bedroom is totally dreamy and I'm green with envy at those mirrored chests!

  13. I like either lamp! Your room is beautiful, love the bedding! I don't have Marshalls or Home Goods just T.J. Maxx which I've done well with over the years. I just saw a lamp with that kind of finish from Wisteria, but I bet you got yours for a better price!

  14. I absolutely love all the stores you mentioned plus a few more that are discount stores.
    Your new lamps look great in your pretty bedroom.

  15. Hi Pam, I love your new lamps! Your bedroom is really pretty--a wonderful retreat. Just wanted to thank you for letting me know about the word verification thing. I thought I had cut it off before, but I guess I didn't save the settings... Anyway, thanks again!

  16. I'm addicted to the same stores! Love these mad hatter lamps. Your bedroom is so beautiful! These lamps are really going to add a bit of whimsy. Love it!

  17. I like your new lamps Pam! They look great! I can't resist most any of the home decor stores. I love them all!
