I have always wanted one of those really awesome Moroccan style multi-pointed star lanterns. I love just about all of them; ones with colored glass, clear glass, metal, mirror, anything, I love them all. Here are three that I found that I like that range from the more traditional, to the more modern:
I can’t explain how much I love these things. There is just something about the contrast between the glass panes and the thin, brass edges that just, well, gets me.
I don’t think my current home has an appropriate spot for one, but someday, I will have a lamp like this and it will look fabulous.
So, as promised, I have pictures of my parent’s new house!
This past weekend, I went home to help with the move and totallyunderestimated the amount of work I was going to get suckered into doing. As soon as my mom picked me up from the bus stop, she dragged me to Wal-Mart to pick up blinds for the new house. (nevermind it was 1:30 in the morning!!) The next morning, we were up at 7:30, ready for the movers to come pack up all the furniture she and I couldn’t possibly move. The movers were wonderful and got everything done in only about 2 hours! Then, we were off to the new place, with two full trucks in tow.
