Good night, Lampy.

Is it wrong to buy something that you won't use for ages but you eventually want to base your entire house around? Does that even make sense? Ya see, there's this lamp. I am smitten. It somehow holds my entire personality in its base as well as single-handedly expressing all my aesthetic desires in one inanimate object. I'm getting carried away but that's what lamp love will do to a girl.

Seriously, look at that piece of art. Funky yet kinda sophisticated at the same time. A hearty thank you to the lovely John & Sherry at younghouselove.com (Marcel & I shall reach their level of DYI awesomeness one day) for bringing this to my attention. The kick in the pants is that it's only $75 on Amazon!! The catch is that it's obviously American wiring & no, I don't want to rewire it over here for fear of disaster (this is why we are no younghouselove) & then have to rewire it again when we ever move back to America.

Soooo, is it weird to buy something to just sit in my parents' attic until we stumble back to the states & get a house that we can decorate entirely based on said thing?

Anyway, there it is. If you want one for yourself go here http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000V6IO9M?ie=UTF8&tag=thiyouhou-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000V6IO9MI but I might have to break your arm or end our friendship or something else truly frightening out of jealousy. And consider it added to my wishlist if you're trying to decide what to get me for Christmas. You should probably go ahead & get us two. You know, for balance.

Will have more meaningful, less material posts for you soon but I keep getting frustrated & quitting. Off to wrap more presents now!!


  1. Hmmm, when I click on the link through my blog it goes to $76 but when I clicked on it from younghouselove.com it was only $75.60. Probably wouldn't blow a gasket over 40 cents but come on, don't be like that Amazon.

  2. Just so you know, I secretely stalk your blog when I get the time, and LOVE it. Is it creepy that I don't leave comments? Well here, let me put aside those eery fears. I couldn't help myself but comment on this one: I love everything you have just said. And it makes total sense - how could it not? And I am sharing your love of this lamp, it is truly incredible. You deserve it.

  3. Ha! No problem, Karmen! I stalk plenty of blogs & never comment. At least this way I can assume that I have hundreds ... no, THOUSANDS of followers & they're all just too shy to say anything. xx

  4. Love that your basing your entire future home on this one piece! Exactly the sort of thing I would do..and may the new pic of you and your penguin is just adorable! Gorgeous! Nicx
