A Little Light in my Life

So, a while back in the midst of a dart gun war between two boys, one of my favorite lamps crashed and burned. It had been around since THE MAN and I got married and was a present. Of course, it was part of a pair of lamps...and searching for a new shade turned up nothing.

So, the sad broken shade-less lamp hung out in my closet. Seemed too "good" to throw away but was pretty useless.

While out junking two weekends ago, I learned a valuable lesson. Always carry dimensions to objects you are looking for in your purse. I spied this really dusty and musty glass shade that I "thought" would work but wasn't for sure. No need to spend a whole $6 if it wasn't going to work!

So, borrowed a tape measure and got dimensions off the shade in the shop. Came home and realized indeed, I should have purchased it.

Of course, it then takes forever to make your way back that same shop and get your prize!

I have the living area painted a butter cream and am pretty fond of yellow roses, so it was a good match I thought.

Here is it's big brother, the floor lamp. Somehow I think they still sorta manage to match...

And a shot of my new beauty at night...

And, on the subject of light...here is a photo I took out our back deck...you can see the grass has not yet quite greened up yet, but it's really working on it. It was such a pretty morning with fog and I managed to convince my little point and shoot camera to capture it even though I was looking into the sun. 

Hope today finds you peaceful and full of light yourself.
