I were to upholster these two chairs in
SWISS ARMY BLANKETS?
Another trip to my local habitat store
and I found yet ANOTHER lamp I apparently needed.
This one is HUGE and HEAVY…and I have no clue what to do with it… sigh.
My first thought was to use it outside in our covered area by the pool
But in bringing it home, the shade was ruined…it was fugly anyway…but now another shadeless lamp is at our casa.
What would you wise and savvy folks do
It does need a taller harp for sure
Half gallon of milk to give you an idea of size….
Ooooh….and do you love the Swiss Army blanket I picked up too???
So give a girl a hand…suggestions…ideas….ever seen a lampapalooza like this?
Lets skip down memory lane together and take a peek at the other Habitat lamp *finds* I have dragged home
The above water bottle lamp was transformed last year…remember it here
…This not so little brass guy was rescued from Habitat
The guy above…hiding behind the paperwhites…just needed a new shade and some love. 5 bucks.
…Then there is this little lady.
Dayum…I have lit up the casa with some Habitat Lighting…
Support your local Habitat for Humanity
…go buy a light for Heaven’s sakes.
So…With paint brush in hand…I have a lofty goal of panting all of our windows black.
maybe not all this weekend
but it is a goal
before…yucky ugly metal on guest house
My plan is to also paint our house…again, not this long weekend…but this year…
I am looking at a classic hacienda white
Inspiration pics from pinterest
While I painted and dreamed…I also got a call…ran out…and spent the rest of the day and night helping a new baby into the world…
Others…not so motivated,…
Motivational speeches for the Big Black Dog?
In this new year of 2012…to Palm Springs California…if you would
To a beautiful little boutique hotel
the Korakia Pensione
Nestled at the base of Mt San Jacinto
This Mediterranean/Moroccan retreat was built in the 1920’s as an artists studio
and has been beautifully cultivated into a
romantic and dare I say, Sexy, hotel...
It has meandering candle lit paths…pools and fountains throughout the property
At once aged….yet hip.
Weekends are reserved for morning yoga.
The rooms are peaceful
Maybe 2012 won’t be half bad.
