Frugal Finds-Leopard Print!

Hey Gang!

I haven't posted a frugal dolly find lately but I am doing one Today!
I found these lamps a Walmart on Sunday.  They were putting out
their Christmas items.  They are Christmas ornaments!  I don't think
that they say Holidays to me but they could work in a doll diorama.
If you read this post anywhere other than It is a Fake!!! Run!!

So here they are.  I purchased two.
When I saw these lamps, I thought about a post that Marta of All 4 Barbie 
posted  about how her Barbie liked leopard print.  She did a cute diorama
with it!
They weren't a bad price but they would have been better at a dollar.
Because of the print, sliver and the crystal these lamps have to be used just right.
If not, it would look like a gaudy mess!
Simple decor is the best for these lamps!
I think even the plan chair might be too much!
Do you see them in a home of office?
What do you think?

OK! Thanks For Looking!

So cute! I will be searching for them. What about a bedroom? I might use them for that myself.

Oh what wonderful lamps!! I can already envision that they will look great in either a high end luxurious home or some sort of interior/architectural/retail boutique setting. They look so chic! What a fab find for your dolls.

I love them!! Ironically, a club member mentioned these lamps at the meeting on Saturday because she knows how much I love animal print. I can't wait to get them. Thanks for sharing. I was trying not to make the Walmart trip, but at least now I know what they look like.

I like the layout. I don't think the chair is too much. It is a nice contrast from the black/white of the rest of the decor. Cute!

Ooh, those are cute! I never look at that Holiday isles, but I think I'm gonna see what they got.

Cute lamps! I'll have to keep my eye out for ornaments that could be useful like this.

I am going to have to spend a lot more time in the Christmas decoration aisles and see what we have here. The lamps are cute and work very well in your plain setting. I think the other way you could go would be totally over the top - like a bordello bedroom. I can't quite see them in an office setting though.

I love them! Thanks for sharing. I need to go pick up a pair. You could always buy a second set and cut the crystals off for a different look. I really like that chair and I think the lamps work well with that pop of color.

Thanks for your comments The grandmommy, ChampengeBarbie L, Georgia Girl, Forestminuet, Muff,RoxanneRoxanne, Carrickters and Vanessa!

The grandmommy, Georgia Girl, Muff and RoxanneRoxanne, keep you eyes open for all thing that will turn up during the Holiday season. I got some small trees too! The scale on ornaments works well for dolls!

ChampengeBarbie L, Forestminuet, Carrickters and Vanessa, I will take your design ideas in to consideration! Thanks!

Great lamps, the Christmas section I found to be a great place for doll items too. I got a nice chandelier ornament at my local store. It's so pretty for my dolls.
