I love, love, love the holidays, but I was so very ready to get things freshened up around here. As you can see, I've made a change to the side board: buffet lamps.
I didn't even have to do lots of searching. I simply walked into Country Curtains on New Year's Eve (what a party girl!), and found these pretty lamps.
Here's a look at things before.
I loved the lamp and the pictures, but I was ready for a change.
So, on New Year's Eve while the oldest daughter partied in L.A. and the middle daughter partied in a suburb up the street (slumber party, that is), the little daughter and I worked on rearranging things.
I did not keep this vignette, but at least it was a start.
So, after slaving away all New Year's Day and ditching our dried out tree and the starting-to-annoy-me Christmas decorations, I came up with this...
I've since added pretty candles in a neutral shade to these candlesticks.
And I like the way this lamp works with the drapery and table fabric.
I know I will probably change things before I get it just right, but I am feeling lighter and brighter with my house cleaner and leaner.
Happy New Year!
