I am seriously a freak about having my house be light. I love to open up all the drapes first thing in the morning and I will often turn on more lights than probably are needed. I just like to have light and be able to see things. I hate being in the dark. Makes me not feel as light and sunny too. Please tell me I am not the only one??!!
So you can imagine my disdain for our old place that was built back in the day and had absolutely NO light fixture in our front room. It was a dark and dreary place at night. We had one tall lamp when we first moved there but at night, and especially during the winter, that room was a depressing pit! So you can imagine why a light bulb finally went on in my head and said, you need to get a table lamp in here! It helped lighten things up and I enjoyed using that room SO much more.
I know I should stop dreaming around on the web right now but my kiddos are napping and on a bike ride so I had a free minute! I think we are going to need some new lamps for our new place. We will finally have enough room again in our bedroom to have our king bed with our nightstands on either side of it. The last room not so much. We were a bit cramped if you haven't picked that up yet. haha I started browsing lamps. The hubs will be thrilled.
I love this lamp:This one is absolutely gorgeous too:I really want to get some new bedding too but can you tell my list of wants is getting longer and longer?? I am still on a student budget. Ugghh. Maybe one day my house will be as cute as I want it to be. I wonder if everyone always feel like that? Do you?
I keep wondering if it will ever be as 'perfect' as I envision it! Nah, your house is probably cute and would totally make me jealous if I saw it!! I always love when some of you take pics of your crafts and it gives a little peak into your house in the background of your picture. Darling paint colors, cute home decor. I am always green with envy. It is okay though, I love to live vicariously. Oh, I am helping my mom redo her laundry room. So stay tuned for pictures. Can't wait to share!
