Update: My Frenchy Studio/Office

New French Candelabra Lamp
Hello my friends! Many of you know that I recently claimed a space in my home for a frenchy studio/office just for moi! I hate to admit it, but progress has been slow...nevertheless, slow but sure! My newest addition to my studio/office is a french lamp, custom designed, just for my desk! My dear friend Laura makes these beautiful lamps...she just does a fabulous job! She makes several different styles...with different finishes...each lamp is custom designed and truly unique! For those of you familiar with Rate My Space...Laura is known as "Lovelane" there....she has a beautiful home...and it's full of toile!!! She's one of the most talented decorator/designers that I know!!! To see more of Laura's fabulous lamps and her beautiful home...just click here!
Anyway, Laura just finished making my lamp and sent these photos to me....Ooooh, I'm just soooo excited...I just can't wait to get it and try it out on my old antique desk! Just look at the style of it...ooh la la...so french...so beautiful!

Ohhh myyyy...just look at the fabulous frenchy detailing on the arms of the candelabra! The design of it is just everything that I love!!! And...I love the glass finial that Laura put on the top!

Another view...she added black shades to show me what it would look like!

Isn't this candelabra lamp just exquisite? I love the black shades and will find some to add to the lamp when I get it! Just a little note here...these photos were taken at Laura's house...just look at that pretty little french girl bust...she's sooo beautiful!!!

Do you remember the Waverly Toile drapes that I purchased to go in this room? I'm still waiting for drapery rods...I ordered them, received them to only find out that they had sent the wrong ones...so I've sent them back and reordered! I'm hoping that they'll get here today!
I think my new frenchy candelabra lamp will be perfect with the toile drapes! I can't wait to get them up and see how they look!

I just want to give my dear friend Laura a very special thank you! Not only do I love the candelabra lamp that she custom made just for me...but every time I look at this pretty lamp, I will think of her! Thank you, Laura...I love you, my friend!!! You did a fabulous job making this lamp and you read me so perfectly...it's everything that I absolutely adore!!!
Well my friends....I'm so glad that you stopped by! I'll be posting again as my little frenchy studio/office progresses...so do stop by again! Leave me a comment and let me know that you stopped in!
Have a terrific Tuesday!
Love ya'll,
Chari

Well you got a bit of my world. So many things come in wrong that I am delighted when they don't. Can't wait to see this room. Oh it is going to be gorgeous. What a beautiful lamp and treasure from your dear friend. Yes Laura has a beautiful Frenchy home I remember really loving her kitchen. I am worn out this afternoon. I do have a project that is going to be geared up for awhile. So glad to see you visiting over at my place, it is almost like you are really here. Love you Sis, Cindy

Oh Chari this is so fun getting little bits and pieces of what is going in your frenchy room!! You just keep us on the edge of our seat waiting for the next little package to be unwrapped!!

By the way speaking of packages- yours went in the mail today!! I have a conf # but you should get it in a day or 2 I would think!

blessings

Oh Chari, that is beautiful! Of course, you know I love your toile drapes. I can't wait to see the finished room. It's going to be a real show stopper. I don't know if I could get anything done in there. I'd just sit around admirning my drapes and lamp! laurie

Chari, this looks like it's going to be a very special office/fantasy room... you can sit around and dream in a place like this! WOW! I can't wait to see the drapes combined with that lamp!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Chari.. you know I'm drooling over this lamp.. girl.. I'm sure it's not even in my budget.. but I've got to find out.. don't you know it would be ohhhhh so perfect in my toile room.. :-)if only....
Thanks for asking about Bill. the first surgery was a breeze..he's getting along great.. can see better than he has in a very long time...now if other things would fall in line so easily honey I wouldn't have to worry so much and be able to have a new lamp..lol

Chari it is fabu!! I remember all of Lauras beautiful table chandys! I drooled and drooled over them! I have to tell ya I have a compote/tazza with the same exact cupid figure and I'm now eyeballing it hard and wondering if it should become a candelabra? *winks* I know yours will look perfect in your new office! And I know exactly how that design process can take longer than expected...I'm STILL working on my home gym...It feels like a year *sighs* I can't wait to see how your office turns out though, so don't take as long as I have! Lol!1 Vanna Vanna
