I'm A Poser

As my daughter, Rachel, would say, I'm a poser. My mother always used to say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. I like my mom's analogy better!!

I saw this beautiful headboard lamp over at Mo's Cottage and just had to have it. It's from Victorian Trading Co. Have you ever seen their catalog or website? Oh my! Beautiful things - you must go see!! I snagged this picture from Mo's Cottage, which she got from the catalog. Mo's dear friend, Sharon, bought it for Mo's birthday. What a sweet friend!!

I just ordered this cute little lamp yesterday and I can't wait for it to arrive. It will look so pretty on my bed. So, yep, I'm a poser and I love it!! Thank you, Mo, for your inspiration!!

Good Morning Joyce.....
Wait until you get this lamp...you will love it...It is so great for reading....when I was in New York I bought this fabulous trim from Paris...I found this trim store that had thousands of beautiful trims ribbon buttons etc....The minute I saw it I knew it would look fantastic on my new bed lamp....As soon as I sew it on I will post it....You are so sweet and I am so glad that I could pass on a fabulous treasure....
Hugs,
Mo ;-)

Hi Joyce, I first wanted to thank you for your sweet email about my flip flop you received, I got one of yours too and loved it also! I also LOVE LOVE the lamp you ordered, I might have to copy too! It's contagious! I'm going to bookmark you so I can visit you now that I've found you! Suzie

Oh girl, great minds run together as they say.I was just thinking about you ......thinking I had to get over here and check on you, LOL .Opened up my blog and there you were !!!
Now about that lamp ! I gotta have one of those !! I have been seeing them advertised sometimes in "Tuesday Morning" brochures that we get in the mail. But they are not made as cute as the one you are getting ! Let us see it when you get it. I used to get their catalog, I guess I need to sign up again .Bye !!

Joyce, I just love VTC. We had a Victorian house years ago and I bought so many things from there! It is a wonderful company. Enjoy your little lamp!
