this little light of mine

I found at a home consignment shop, sitting by itself on a dining table amongst so much visual clutter of furniture. It was a diamond in the rough. I scored this gorgeous Frederic Cooper lamp on sale for only $70! I don't think anyone had any idea what they were sitting on with this beautiful piece! The only thing I wish was that there was another for sale to make it a pair! But no matter, I am the happy and grateful owner, I had to have it! I sometimes just gawk at the gorgeous detail work incased by ribbons of gold, pink, turquoise, lilac and navy blue. ALL of my favorite colors! Isn't it fabulous? Tell me, what are some of your recent consignment, or second hand finds and treasures??!
