LIGHTEN UP...

Well as noted before, my birthday is coming up and Im having a get-2-gether. Well Im preparation I need furnishings to at least attempte to put the home together for the family. I live in a condo and some things cannot be changed. However, light fixtures can be changed.

I really like this chandelier, it is part of the Roxbury collection by Thomasville.

the shades do come in black

While in Home Depot near work I saw this chandelier out of the corner of my eye.
This is how it appears on the website...
Nice...huh.
I went to my local Home Depot and inquired with a salesman (who was unhelpful), about the chandelier. Well my Home Depot did not have it. However, it was part of a special order catalog. When I looked at the price it was $249. Wait. that cant be right.

Clearly its $179 in the store and not $249. The advice of the nice salesgirl...go back and buy the one for $179. I certainly hope they havent changed the price by the time I make it back. I wasnt going to buy a chandy for my condo. However, it seems to be worth the investment. I can always take it with me.

What are your thoughts?

MY FAVORITE THINGS!!!!!!!

My birthday is in a month. My all white party is in a month. Leading up to my birthday I will blog about a few of my favorite things (not in order of importance).

FAVORITE THING: a stylish bathroom


This bathroom was featured in the June/July 2008 issue of Traditional Home magazine. The article can be found here.


This is by far my favorite bathroom.
