Lampy McLamperson

Can you tell I had a hard time coming up with a blog title this morning?

A few months ago we had an unfortunate tail wagging incident at the Little House that resulted in one of our navy candlestick lamps meeting an untimely death.  RIP, little guy.

Lamp Spray Paint RIPWe tried fixing the poor, unfortunate fellow, but there was no hope for him. We set him and our grief aside and went to Home Goods, where we bought a very spiffy pair of tall, navy trefoil lamps.

They looked horrible on our nightstands. I mean terrible. So terrible, in fact, that we were completely caught up in the terrible-ness and forgot to take a photo. So we tried them on the mantel.

New Mantel Lamp 2They weren’t terrible! Actually, it was love at first sight.  Of course, that meant we were still on the hunt for new bedside lamps.

Somehow, we kept forgetting to restart the lamp hunt, so I’ve been lampless for about a month now.  Luckily we stumbled across these beauties at Target on Tuesday, remembered we were wanting lamps anyway, and bought them.

New Target Lamp 2I’m really loving these lamps (all except for the horribly yellow bulbs we put in them). They’re basically the Beyonce of lamps: curvy in all the right places. They also bring some much needed wood tones into the room to tie into our jute rug and shades.

I’m still working on accessorizing this room (two years later), so someday maybe I’ll actually finish styling my nightstand.  Until then, at least I can see what the heck’s on it in the middle of the night.

Have a really blessed Easter weekend! What are you having for Easter dinner? Have you died eggs yet? Kevin and I are taking photos of families at our church on Easter morning… I’m so nervous! Any tips on posing families?

    Just dyed eggs with my nieces today. We’re having steaks for Easter, my mom wanted to change it up a bit. No complaints here since all I have to do is make a cheesecake.
