Here's how it went down:
"The chickens are in the oven, they'll be ready in about 40 min, I'm just going to run to Homesense to get pillows for the guest room" (my in laws were coming and we had no pillows in the guest room)
Lee: "Ok, I'll put the carrots and potato's on in 20"
Me: "Ok thanks, I'll be back in a second"
40 minutes later, I came home with pillows, pillow cases, gardening gloves and these:
That's right I went to homesense for Pillows and came home with LAMPS. I couldn't help it, I tried to leave without them, but I couldn't! They spoke to my soul, or my addiction to pretty shiny things . . . probably the latter.
I brought them in the door and immediately stated my intention . . . to see how they look and take them back. I put them in place, and Lee agreed they looked GREAT! So really it was Lee who bought new lamps for the living room. :)
I fell in LOVE with their shape, and with their color, Their price wasn't bad either @ $39.99 each.
Another big feature was that they already matched the living room and they wouldn't create a ripple effect throughout our main floor (you know, one change, leading to another), green is already our color of choice for the main floor :)
Needless to say, this wasn't a planned purchase, so that money has to come from somewhere, either it's June's Home Budget or we won't be eating the last week of May :S haha.
I'll let you know
