At their Grand Opening on Thursday, I frolicked around the store and somehow managed to only fill one cart.  I'll have to try harder next time.  First lets talk about what I didn't take home with me (yet).

These marble and wood cake stands are what dreams are made of.  I will own one of these in the near future, but before I adopt one, someone needs to purge serve-ware that doesn't get used.  This will be the winter of purging!  With you as my witnesses!

Hunting for some Anthropologie-esque knobs at a lower price point?  I bet you could find something here!

I totally have a plan in mind for these copper frames, but there are about 17 projects on the personal to-do list before them, so they'll have to wait.

CHAIRS!!  No I didn't hoard buy any.  But they're pretty.  Very pretty.

This daybed is pretty darn classy too and it has a classy price to go with it.  $299.99.  I'm swooning for the turned legs and detail on the back.

See, I'm swooning.  Luckily I had a delightful settee with patterned fabric buttons to catch me.

So what did I take home?  In addition to some consumables like wine and gnocchi, and a few other random things, I upgraded what sits on our bedroom side tables.

There are several more bedroom upgrades needed, but these new lamps make me grin ear to ear.  The cord may need wrapping with something a bit more exciting in the future, but can we just take in the shape for a moment?  Geometric brass?  Ooo lala.

It's World Market's Diamond Brass Table Lamp Base with the Crinkled White Paper Shade.  The shade adds just a touch of texture and the lamp is a larger scale without being heavy like our old lamps.

The wood slice is also a World Market adoptee and currently smells like bacon.  Not sure why, but I'm not currently opposed to it.

After the headboard upgrade and now the lamps, the rest of this room needs to step it up.  I may have a few ideas, but they'll have to wait until I can put my "done" stamp on Dori the fliphouse.  SOON!
