Good For A Laugh

My advice - whenever you can take something on approval, do it! Even if you think you want to go ahead and buy it.

Yesterday I was out shopping for clients and I came across this "cool" vintage lamp. For some reason I was really digging it and thought it'd be great for our front entry so I took it on approval.

I got it home, set it down, was kind of digging it, then I plugged it in and it sparked and shorted our electricity. We flipped the breaker and then tried again, and it shorted again. We don't need to be risking a fire at our house, so it's going back.

So I left it in the entry until I can take it back today, and now all I can see is a Christmas tree with fruit on it... ah! Terrible! What was I thinking?!

I thought you guys would enjoy this, it's good for a laugh at least ;) I always ask Erin as Isabella "cheesy or cool?" because sometimes there is a fine line. This is most definitely cheesy.

However, I do LOVE my new frames I just got at Isabella... and after almost 5 years of marriage I'm starting to put out wedding pictures of some of my favorite moments from our wedding. It really does bring me happiness when I see them!

And on a somewhat related note, it was my husband's 29th birthday yesterday and we had a great date night out on a Wednesday night. I love you Matt!!!!!

  6. A Christmas tree with fruit....snort!  I'm a sucker for anything 3-D so I get the initial appeal.  Great frames for a cute couple.

  10. Well, that is quite a lamp! It might be better in the right space and, you know, with proper wiring? (Overly optimistic?)

    That's hilarious - but only because your house didn't catch on fire, thankfully! How crazy! Thank god for 'out on approval'.

  12. Love entry table but my vote is not for that lamp.  I like the tusk lamp better.  Let us know what you decide.
