bowled over.

I had blogged (here) before about how I ADORE and WANT an Arco lamp!!! However... the ol' pocketbook screams and runs when looking at the price tag on a real (aka: vintage) Arco, and though I think the sky is the limit when it comes to decorating my house...

my ceiling height tends to put a lid on my imagination.

Enter Target and their lamp department:

The frame of it is close enough for me - the height is just right - the PRICE TAG was fantastic!!!

But - the shade and base weren't right...

so I found a stainless steel bowl and a wooden rectangular box.

*big grin*

I am gonna fill the box with concrete when I get a couple of nice "concrete pourin'" days in a row (right now it's weighted with bricks), and then I will decide if I'm going to break the box away and have a concrete base - or just leave it!

comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where sometimes my determination (and total dis-respect for cooking equipment) to have something I like just makes me laugh... but happy!!!

What do you use YOUR mixing bowls for?
