Do you ever find something that is the perfect color
the perfect size
and the perfect style?
So much so
that you can't stop thinking about it?
Yeah, me too.
Though honestly, most of the time it happens to me when I have been shopping
at a flea market or thrift store and by the time that overwhelming
I.have.to.have.it. feeling starts gaining ground
is already long gone.
I hate that.
You can't even call around to see if another store has it
or wait to see if it will come back in stock.
You are stuck with searching places like Ebay and endless Craigslist ads and yard sales
just keeping fingers crossed you will bump into another one
all while slapping yourself for
letting the first one get away.
So when I saw this little brassy lamp at Pottery Barn
and I felt that twinge of love and envisioned the possibilities
I knew I just needed to order it and give it a try.
Those little details
that gold color
that metal lampshade that is so vintage inspired
not to mention it is the perfect size for a side table or bedroom.
You can just say that
I was in love pretty much the moment
it came out of the box.
I am playing with it as we speak
and this little piece of goodness just might inspire a few changes in the guest bedroom
sharing just a peek for now but stay tuned- a spring refresh is on the way.
I am getting back in the swing of things over here
and getting to work on some big projects that are coming up over the next few months
That might involve
even one that just might involve a little Christmas.
Happy Monday everyone
*this is the Oliver lamp at Pottery Barn
and on sale currently- which is even better! :)
