Let There Be Light!

~ Happy Thursday! ~

I have been on a quest for the perfect floor lamp/reading light to use by a side chair in my living room for the last few months.  It needed to be a bronze finish, since that would blend best with my current furnishings. 

I have seen some really nice examples of what I would like at Pottery Barn, and Restoration Hardware, but they wanted a lot more money than I was willing to pay. 

So I did what I usually do, simply stalk the discount stores until I find what I am looking for! :-)
Well, it worked! I have been keeping my eyes open at Home Goods, Marshalls and TJ Maxx for a while now. Finally yesterday, I scored EXACTLY what I was looking for, and I only paid $69! (Far less than PB or RH wanted for a similar model.)


 I like the goose neck, and the pull chain.
 The oil rubbed bronze finish is perfect for that room.



 And, it's just the right height too!
 Sorry for the gloomy looking pictures. This room is usually filled with sunshine, (it has THIRTEEN windows), but it's been raining for the last two days, so it's not very good for taking nice photos. 
Ahhh...
I love it when I get to cross things off my list! 
My to do list is longer than my arm! I know I'm not the only one! Do you feel like you take one step forward, and two steps back some days? I've been feeling that way lately.
I have to get moving on the curtain panels and bunting in my little guy's room, so I think that I will focus on that today. 

Yesterday, I spent half the day shopping for and loading in some accessories for a client/friend of mine.
I still have lots to do there, and then we have some shopping to do for furniture in her living room as well. 

I am trying to keep up with the blog, my family, carve out an hour a day to work out, and do what needs to be done around the house as well.  My apologies for not posting yesterday. I promise to be back with more fun projects in the next few days. 

I hope you are having a great week!
