Happy 4th of July! In honor of the holiday, I bring you a light that reminds me of fireworks! :)
When I got to pick at the private estate, I found this amazing light fixture. Brodie had actually texted a photo of it to me weeks before and I excitedly wrote back that I wanted it. He wasn't sure if the family would part with it or not, so when I showed up to shop, I tried not to get my hopes up.
Our contact there called her sister and nieces to make sure they didn't want it. They all said no, but I was still trying to be really cautious. I tend to get my hopes up and then get disappointed, so I was trying very hard to play it cool over this light fixture.
Finally, toward the end of our shopping spree, she asked me if I wanted it. Still not believing I actually got to buy it, I said that I thought so. It finally hit me that I really did get to bring it home and I was so excited to pay for it and cart it off to my car.
Aren't those light bulbs crazy???
I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with it. I want to hold onto it because it's amazing but I know that it's in high demand on ebay. I wish I could replace my craft room light fixture with this, but it's a finished attic and the ceilings are way too low. I am toying with the idea of putting it in our dining room, but we would need to update some of the decor. I just found out (3+ years later) that Andy thinks one of the walls I decorated years ago looks like an old lady's house! And not in a cute vintage way! Ha! I knew I didn't love it anymore but he never said he didn't like it! :) My style used to be more "pottery barn" than playful vintage and I've been working on updating the house to reflect that. Guess I have more work to do! :)
Oh and if I kept it, I would just put cool round bulbs in it... The spikey lights are not for me!
