I have no self control

I HAVE NO SELF CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I figure this is all Amy's fault from Maison Decor, since she is always changing her house, and thinks I'm weird because once I get something the way I like it I NEVER change it. I was looking for a light for my friend Kris's bed room..........
aaaannnnddddd found this one on eBay

It's shot on the diagonal, so don't be confused and think that it is a tilted table lamp. It is a hanging ceiling light, and I LOVE IT. It holds three light bulbs, and will give a soft romantic light, which a middle aged vixen needs in her boudoir. (Not that she's middle aged, really.......well, she ain't exactly young, but she's DEFINITLY not old, which makes her....gulp....sort of....middle aged.)
Anyhooo...so, I was tooling around this sellers site which had LOTS of great tempting stuff (Ebay seller:  richardshorse), and lo and behold!!!! I SEE IT, IT BECKONEDS TO ME, I MUST HAVE IT!!!!







































This is the light I have now............




As you can see, it is from the same time period, and they both have candlewick detailing (the small glass balls around the edge), but the new one is THE BOMB!!!!!
Here it it is lit up.......

I know I'm making a three course meal out of a snack, but here is the detail of the stem....

So, now I will wait for it to arrive, the seller is GREAT and already shipped both Kris and my lights out. (Is that grammatically correct? My father would say that was redundant. OK, it should probably read..."shipped both Kris's and my lights.", but that doesn't sound good either, well you get my meaning and I don't think he reads this anyway.) (The man is 96, and nothing gets by him.)

I had to do a double take on someones side bar. I have the very same identical light fixture. My husband found it on ebay many years ago and we just love it. Good score, you will have many years of enjoyment on that one.

Oh...yes...it's fabulous! You definitely needed it! I have one similar in pink hanging in my hall also found on Ebay. I have bought most of my light fixtures on Ebay.

Haha, well I'm glad I'm not alone, Betsy! When I get something the way I like it, I leave well enough alone, too! If it ain't broke, don't fix it. : ) Both lights are beautiful and I can see from your existing light why you were drawn to the one you purchased.

Oh that is a pretty light fixture Betsy. So glad it was my fault!! Love it and cannot wait to see how it looks in the kitchen! Now around in blogland you will see that lots of change out stuff on a regular basis so we have "snacks" to blog about!
