Today (Monday, February 8) we took a dear friend to one of our favorite salvage shops in town. A and her hubby, S, just purchased their first home; a dreamy, 1940-1950s English Tudor Revival house with old-school lighting and charming built-ins.
What seemed like hours upon hours of looking up, down and all around, in nooks and crannies, trying to take everything in, the Wife then looked up. That’s when we found this newest light fixture:
Sure, our house was built in the 20s but who says we can’t add a little 50’s flare?
Doc, from Whiteriver Salvage, was great! A was interested in at least one of these kinds of lights, but there were two in the store. He offered a great deal, actually a steal, for the two of them. The three of us decided to split the cost and each get a lamp for our homes. As A would put it, “now we’ll have sister homes!!”
The wife and I have already chosen the perfect spot for the new light. We’re planning to hang it in the breakfast nook. Our plans are to do some quirky, whimsical colors in there…….think Alice in Wonderland, and thought this little beauty would be a great addition to that plan. Fact is, we had been eyeing different kinds of lights and going through many different plans for the room and until we discovered the light we hadn’t made any true plans.
