Things here happen fast and slow. No one shows up for a few days and then they all show up on the same day at the same time.
We bid farewell to the dumpster and driveway potty - yahoo! The boys are back to playing basketball in the driveway and we can actually park close to the house. The driveway took a beating from the dumpster. Just add it to the list. I never knew our front yard would look like a pit when construction was nearly done. I have a call in to a landscaper. I hope I didn't sound desperate!
My light fixtures have been a bone of contention. I had to buy a lot of them. Or at least what felt like a lot of them. I have looked and looked. Online and in store. I might have mentioned it, once or twice, already on this blog. I have purchased light fixtures from here, there and every where. I guess I am not one to walk in to a retail shop and drop 4 figures on light fixtures. What I have ended up with is beautiful (at least I think so), each has a story, and I certainly got a few gray hairs over it all coordinating. If I never shop for another sconce again I will be happy.
Over the last few months, while watching Nate's show, I have noticed and liked the sconces on his set. I thought about them a couple of times, looked on his website for sources, didn't have any luck and moved on. Fast forward to a Restoration Hardware clearance center that is closing at the end of the month and look what I found for our living room. It wasn't until I was home and catching up on Nate episodes a few days later that I realized they were the same light fixture. Yeah! Love them and love the white linen shade. They are the Nolan Double Sconce and retail for $259. My price...2 for $80.
Hmmm....add window treatments to the list as well as a coordinating light fixture for the foyer. Will the list ever end?
