Well, I’ve been consistently stalking the local Marshall’s and TJ Maxx looking for the pair to my pretty glass lamp I found a month or so ago.
To no avail.
But, on my last trip, there were some pretty gold and mercury-glass numbers that caught my eye. While not exactly like the original glass beauty, I liked them.
And I really liked the gold and glass.
I walked away from them (and took a detour through the baby girl clothes for Addy). Then, I realized that I couldn’t walk away without these new gold pretties. So, I bit the bullet and brought them home.
And wouldn’t you know it, they look really nice together in our master bedroom.
How have I lived without lamps in the bedroom? I’ve really gotten used to reading in bed with light. So nice!
And, while I was originally going to take the other lamp back, I just couldn’t do it. It’s like taking in an orphan. I can’t just send her back. It’s in the extra bedroom now. I think she looks nice there.
I’m becoming a downright lamp diva. Who would have thought that a short time ago, I only had 2 lamps in the entire house.
And while I was in lamp euphoria, I also put some special rings on display. I’ve been trying to find a way to show off our class rings. But, you know, at some point you just have to do something.
When Ryan gave me his ring in high school, I wore it for a while on a chain. How very “Happy Days” of me, no? Then the two rings hung from my rearview mirror on a chain for several years in high school and college.
If you rode in my Cutlass Calais or my Grand Prix, you likely saw these rings.
But, for a while now, they’ve just sat in a ring box.
And now I get to see them in the extra bedroom every morning while getting ready. So much better.
A few questions for you:
How many lamps do you have in your house?
What do you think of our new additions?
Any ideas for a class ring display?
