kitchen updates thanks to lamps.com

It is only Monday morning and I already feel behind. How is that for the start of the week? Aces. I hope your weekends were delightful though. And thanks so much for all of your comments on Fess Up Friday. I now have quite a shopping list started for myself.

Today I wanted to share a recent experience I had with the good folks at Lamps.com. As I've eluded to in crazy code like ways (I promise I'll divulge more soon) I've been working feverishly to get a laundry list of items done to our little cottage and addressing the light over our kitchen window has been on that list for a while.

Our old light was a bit large for that small window and those that are blessed with long, tall legs (I don't have this problem) would often knock their heads on it. Not the best memory for guests to leave with. So when the team at Lamps.com offered to have me try something out I screamed "sign me up!" Actually, I think I typed it, but you get the point.

The decision was not an easy one and I even started plotting all of the other places I could add pendants just so that I wouldn't have to choose just one. But after a lot of back and forth, I landed on this hot little number - the Feiss Brushed Steel Urban Renewal Mini Pendant.

As soon as it arrived I ripped open the box to find it looked even better in person (wahoo) and I cleared the hubs schedule so he could put it up for me right away. He's such a good sport.


Everything was laid out and easy to follow and as someone who has ordered a lot of lights in her day, I was thrilled that we didn't have to make a trip to Home Depot for any parts. Everything was included - hallelujah!


And in no time flat, I had a new light. She is so light and pretty. I just love her.


Her shape is so sculptural and I think adds just the right amount of fun to my kitchen window. Now if only my view was of the ocean rather than my neighbors. One thing at a time I guess.


Sometimes the little details make the biggest difference.

Have you made any little changes around the house lately? Do you have a pretty view out of your kitchen window? Have any wish list lighting items?

  14. What an adorable kitchen light! It looks like a little flower hanging from the ceiling. Definitely cheerful! Sadly our kitchen window looks out at the yellow peeling paint of the building that's 15ft away from us. Someday I hope to have a kitchen window that looks out onto a nice backyard!

  18. That little light is cute as a button....and I don't really care for the view out my kitchen window cause it usually means I am doing dishes or something lame like that.

  19. That is so cute! I love the frilly details against the industrial hangy-bit (yes that's the technical term). And my kitchen window looks right into my neighbour's kitchen. And his isn't very pretty. Oh dear. ;) xxx
