lamp love

You may remember that I was helping my
mother-in-law find new lamps for her bedroom.
We looked high and low and she recently ordered a pair
{more on that later}.
We went to a high end lamp store just to look.
You know what happened next.
I fell in love.
With a pretty penny lamp.

Times two.
Need I say more?
The pair of lamps would have been $600.
I'm not that kind of girl.

You know what I did next.
I went home and shopped online.
And found these beauties at Ballard.
Suzanne Kasler Large Gourd Lamp

On sale and with free shipping.
Making them a third of the cost of the others.

What do you think?
Look better?
Well at least I'm seeing better.
These lamps give off so much light compared to
the old lamps I had from Target.
My aging eyes need all the help they can get.

I'll admit I'm kind of second guessing the modern chandelier
I chose last year to replace the ceiling fan but for now...

I moved the old lamps around the house...
one to the sitting area.
Now to find the time to sit here and read. Ha! 

 tried to get a shot of the gallery wall here but
too much glare...this is the best i could do.

 thinking of putting something above the lamps...
the wall just looks big and blah.
what about some mid size sunburst mirrors?
too much?
I never get tired of looking at this scene...
the river I grew up on...

this was my push present for baby #3.
we had the artist put a little egret to represent him...

Hope you have a happy day!
