New Around the House

My love affair with lamps has been on the rocks. For seven months, I haven’t had any. Not ‘a one. And it’s dang near killed me.

But last week I picked up two second-hand lamps (both Ikea), and my life is turning around.

The standing lamp in the living room is like a bright little miracle of non-overhead light in the evenings.

And this heavier-than-you’d-imagine black beauty in the entryway is a welcome welcome.

I also love textiles and rugs, so this little puppy is a gem. I found him at an antique show for $35.

Well worth it for that fabuloso pattern, and uber soft chenille!

Slowly, but surely, I’m filling the blank canvas that is our sparse white flat. And it makes me happy.

    Okay, we have to add antique shows to our list of to-dos. I never get to go antiquing over here – too busy with other stuff.
