So, remember way back when I did a post on my Master Bedroom renovation?
And then on styling a dresser?
Well, believe it or not I'm still trying to get the balance right on that dresser.
Ok, so the other day I went to The Happiest Place On Earth which was a very, very good day. And I shared with you many of the items I bought that day.
However, I left out just a teeny weeny bit of what I purchased.
Notice the glitter? The sparkles? The crystals? Yup, I'm still a 12 year old girl on the inside. For sure.
I had a plan. I have been searching for ages for some tall branches to put in this beauty.
Isn't she pretty? I had picked her up for a steal...of course....at Decor Steals.
I've mentioned my
obsession fondness for Decor Steals in the past, right?
Anyway, this baby has been sitting on my dresser for at least a month. I've been trying to find just the right thing to put in her.
I mean, you can't just put anything, right? I was going to see this every morning when I woke up and last thing at night when I turned out the light.
So, when I made my trip into civilization last week, off to Michael's I went.
Humming a happy tune and skipping all the way.
And I went to their floral department. The place with all the branches and stuff.
And it was all boring. It had all been done. Like a million times.
I needed flash. I needed sparkle. I needed bling.
And then across the store came a blinding flash of light....it was the sun shining in the front windows onto a display of....
....Sparkly Holiday Branches.
At HALF off.
And one of them was covered in silver glitter and pearls and crystals and was shouting my name from across the store.....
I mean, come on. Glitter. Crystals. Pearls.
So I ran to the front of the store and picked out three of the sparkliest, glitteriest branches I could find and three branches of pearls to keep them company and I zipped my now-covered-in-glitter-from-head-to-toe self through the register and brought those babies home to my little mountain house.
In my now-covered-in-glitter car.
You can never escape Michaels without being attacked by glitter, can you? Even the credit card swiper was covered in glitter!
So, here she is in all her glory.
And she's beautiful and the sun catches the sparkly things and makes me smile.
But now there's another problem.
No, look again.
The lamp is too small. The scale is all wrong.
So now I'm looking for a new lamp.
In fairness, I never really liked this one. I picked two of them up at Lowes a few years back in desperation when I needed bedside lights after my divorce.
But they were never my style. I thought I could make them work but....nope.
Not doing it for me.
So the hunt continues. I think I'm going to head back to the Happiest Place On Earth.
Until then, maybe I'll put this lamp on a stack of books or something so that it doesn't drive me completely out of my mind.
My sweetie's right.
I am anal.
But don't tell him I admitted it.
