One of my favorite blogs has an advertisement on the side for a website with awesome lamps. This lamp is always teasing me:
Unfortunately, it comes with a steep price tag: $299. I don't see that being an option anytime soon.
Imagine my excitment today when I find this little gem in my local TJ Maxx:
Sure, its got a blue shade which doesn't fit in my decor at all, and its missing a finale..and its a different shape. But its the same lamp!! With a new shade and a finale (which will still keep this lamp at a really reasonable price) this lamp will fit right in. In the mean time I will pretend I just saved $270.
