My Favorite Things - Lights

Happy Saturday!  Today I have a few of my favorite things, namely some of my favorite lights.

My fabulous find: a $3 chandelier at a going-out-of-business vintage store in Florida in 2007.  The best part?  It works!  I bought a new chain, a medallion, and Vera Bradley Java Blue shades to give it a fun look.

Not a fabulous find (J bought this for me years ago), but I love it.  I keep it in my office.

I just scored this Vera Bradley lamp at a yard sale last weekend for $5!  I'm still trying to figure out where I should put it (I'm thinking in the foyer).

I'm not a huge fan of this chandelier that we installed in the dining room a few weeks ago, but it was free and it provides lots of light, so I can't complain about that - especially after not having a working chandelier in there for years.  What I do love are my fun Java Blue shades.  They kind of match the pineapple-y thing that is going on with this chandelier too!

Not a light, unless you count the candle inside, but this fun, hanging cage is one of my favorite items.  I got it at Homegoods in 2008 for around $15.

And finally, my pretty pink chandelier, complete with crystals.  This one was from Pottery Barn and was not a steal, but I adore it.

Those are all so pretty! I have one to put a candle inside too but the rest is mostly just the lamp 'cause I can't find one I like for a reasonable price.
I love the Brown, white and blue and the green and pink ones :D

Those are all great lights! I love the VB ones, what a great deal for the bermuda blue lamp!

Thanks Akuma!! I agree - I have seen so many cute lamps but they are all so expensive (unfortunately). I'm glad you like them :) Clearly I love florals (and Vera Bradley!)

Alison, thanks!! I thought you would :) I couldn't believe the deal I got on the Bermuda Blue one - I was ready to take it for $5 even if it didn't work (I could always put the shade on another lamp! lol).

Thank you so much, The Whitfields! I love my background too :) although I am currently working on a new layout, because this one is getting a bit cluttered! Hopefully it will be up and running soon (and I'm trying to keep my background!)

curlyhare, thanks so much for letting me know - I really, really appreciate when readers and bloggers alert me to these types of copyright infringements. It is so frustrating how many people don't understand digital media copyright laws - and shocking that CBS doesn't! I appreciate that you let me know.

The article is gone now, I guess too many bloggers complained.

My lawyer sent a cease and desist about 30 minutes before it was removed asking that all copyrighted photos (mine and other bloggers) be removed. Glad it is down, although an apology would have been appreciated. Thanks again for letting me know, curlyhare! I really appreciate it.
