Daily Covet: Glass Table Lamps

I am nesting.  But not in the nursery department.

I also have Spring Fever, which makes me want to liven things up around my house.

My living room has been a tough room for a long time.  It’s always felt “unfinished.”  I have finally decided to pay some attention to it.  I started with the easy part.  Pillows!

We added an adorable little chest, which we painted bright turquoise against our paler blue walls.  It’s got gold accents, which look great against our straw-colored sofa.

Now, I’m wanting to update lighting.  I want something a little more modern to juxtapose with our mostly French-style antiques.  I think after scouring site after site for lighting that is fabulous, but also affordable (really?  $700 for lamps?!), I have finally found what I’m looking for… enter Pepita glass lamps from you’ll never guess where!

Daily Covet: Twinkle Lights & Backyard Landscaping

Why wait until Christmas to break out the Christmas lights?

I would argue that Christmas lights are better in the summer than they are sans sub zero temperatures anyway.  It’s fun to sit out under a dark sky filled with twinkling stars, while you have your own personal, twinkling stars close enough to touch.

I’m on a mission to find twinkle lights that you don’t have to plug in because, after all, who wants ugly, heavy-duty extension cords running through their backyard paradise?  Not me.
