Light in my Life

I pulled up to my house yesterday and saw two large boxes on my doorstep.
"Oh! I wonder who that is to??"
It's always exciting to see packages on the doorstep. Often they are 1. not for me and 2. not very interesting. But today was one of those days that I hope for. It was TO ME. And Exciting! It was from CSN!!!! You know that store that carries everything from swingsets to panini grills and everything in between. I had almost forgotten about a lamp that I had purchased a few months ago. It was on backorder...forgotten in my head. Until today.

Sister Sledge: "What is it Mom?"
Me: “FRAGILE (FRA-GEE_LAY) it must be Italian!”

 (throwing Styrofoam and other packing materials into the air as I dig),

"Why Sister Sledge...will you LOOK. AT THIS!!! It's a major award!!!! Why...Why....its a lamp. It's a leg lamp."

Alright, maybe not a leg lamp. But my version of a leg lamp.
By the way....I do own a leg lamp too. It's in Big Daddy's office.

Back to my lamp....
Oh. And just as lovely as I recalled....

Mercury glass.

Punched metal shade.

Light in my life. :)

The “Soft Glow of Electric Sex (iness)” now cast a glow within my living room!
Be still my heart.

I am looking forward to announcing the winner of the CSN Store gift card on Thursday.
You might want to get your own lamp. Or swing set. Or panini grill. Good Luck and stay tuned!

See you Thursday for Thrifty Thursday (links up this evening).
