I was looking through my I-phone pictures today and noticed that other than pictures 
of my kids and my dog, most of the other pictures I had taken were of lighting. 

First stop, Crate and Barrel.....
I liked this fixture, and even contemplated using it "The Nook".
I ended up being resourceful and using a light I already had.

Next stop, Tuesday Morning....
Tuesday Morning is beginning to be one of my regular stops when searching for lamps.
They have a great selection and their prices can't be beat.

 I loved the texture of this one...

Moving on, to Ballard Design Outlet.....
I tried to talk my friend into using this in her home.
No dice, but someone should snatch this up.

There happens to be a grungy old lighting store just a few miles from my house.
I pop in every now and then to see what they have. 
It's jammed pack full of antique and vintage lighting. 
I was drooling over these alabaster lamps. 

The store is a bit overwhelming.  
You can barely walk through there without stepping on or hitting your head on lighting.
It's like a treasure hunt - right up my alley! 

I got brave and ventured into the back room on my last visit. 
It was filthy and jammed pack with treasures, like this lantern. 
It is covered in black soot, but underneath is a beautiful brass finish. 

Last week, a friend and I took a little field trip to Palette Studio in Cincinnati. 
Their website does not do them justice. 
It was like being in lamp heaven.  
These emerald green lamps caught my attention right away.
So did the price tag, $459 each.  Yikes!  
That's a far cry from my $8 emerald green thrift store lamps.

You know I love thrifting for lamps, but I was tempted to let my entire family 
eat cereal for a month so these beauties could come home with me. 
Kidding, kind of. 

I snapped a picture of the lampshade storage room.
Gorgeous lampshades as far as the eye could see!

I came across another lovely lamp at Goodwill a few weeks back.  
I just can't leave a good lamp behind.
I'll show you tomorrow.

  5. May I ask what is the name of the grungy lighting store? I'm located in Cincinnati.


    1. It is called Grainger's and it's located in Dayton, KY.

  6. You have some great lighting resources around you! I am going to have to try Tuesday Morning--I haven't been in there in ages. Also, I cannot believe you can buy shades at Kroger. I miss Kroger. We don't have them out in CA...

  10. I really like my large crock pot, but with two sons gone to college it has been an adjustment!
    So I bought a smaller a single for the downsized family, with significantly much
    better results. Also, if a month in a time appears crazy, try performing meals a week at a time.
    One particular evening or afternoon of prep,
    as well as the whole week is easier, and a lot more
    time efficient!
