Grown Up Lights

I'm a bit embarrassed about this post...it's a little pointless....maybe even boring for you. But I wanted to share anyhow.
Earlier this week, hubs gave me the day off to go shopping to my hearts content child-free! Aaaahhhh! It's amazing the things you can find when there are no little people pulling each other's hair or trying to jump out of the shopping cart or crying for their bottle, sippy cup, snacks, books...etc.!

Well, I spent a goooood long time at Home Sense, and after lots of phone pictures sent to hubs for the "thumbs up", I came home with this...


and this...



Sigh. Swoon. Be still my beating heart...I've fallen in love all over again.

It's been YEARS since a full sized table lamp has graced my home.
In fact, I'm not sure I've ever purchased one. That's why I'm calling them my grown-up lamps. They make me feel all grown up and like I have a real house now!

Oh...I know I said yesterday that I was trying my hardest to stay away from the scrolly iron-work stuff...but the nice scrolly ironwork table is something we already owned and...we are operating on a budget here...and...I'm going to paint it black as soon as we have warm enough weather here and...am I just making excuses? I just really love that table!

A few weeks ago - umm, actually last time I was at Home Sense....LOVE that store! - I found a new overhead light for our room as well. I may or may not have squealed when I saw it.


(Sorry about the terrible lighting in the pics. Our camera is not the greatest, nor is the photographer. I need to fire her.)

Slowly but surely the room is coming together! Our next step will be white trim and closet doors...I can hardly wait!
