Can a girl love two lamps at the same time? & Blog Following Swap

Blog Following Swap-Holy Cow, say that three times fast! Not easy to do but joining this Swap Party is a breeze. SJ at Homemaker on a Dime has initiated a great way to build your blog following. Head over and check out the details. In the meantime, I am now following Jodi at My Life on Cedar Street. She's relatively new on the blogging scene but she's definitely a girl after my own heart.  If you want some eye candy check out her post for yesterday-lots of beautiful pictures of some fabulous homes using my favorite palette-browns, creams, greens and yummy soft rusts.


Ohhh...I just got message from Court at Frog 2 Fab: she's my newest follower through Homemaker on a Dime. Thanks Court! Now, I'll follow her. See, I told you it was easy. We're just a big bunch of followers around here!


Now, I want to share a really quick little revamp I did with some lamp shades I bought awhile ago at Goodwill.


Yeah, $3.99 a piece. How could I walk away? I knew I'd use them someplace, sometime. Great lines and in my color!
My foyer um.. little area next to my front door has a sweet little table on which I recently placed these two PB lamps. Cute, but it just wasn't making it for me..not the right scale or proportion to fill the space but I let it go and went about putting away laundry. ..


and then I saw them-just where they had been sitting for weeks-on my bedroom dresser. What if i popped them right on top of the lamps?? Hmmm, let's run out and see!!


PERFECTION!
I love you both!
