Last Friday I got to do something really fun! I got to go to World Market and spend $75 to fix up a little spot in my house. I love World Market. They have unique, affordable items and such a variety.
I already owned some things from there: our compost bucket, coasters and several serving pieces. So this time I decided to fix up my sofa side table for the fall. Fall……ahhhhh…….
I wandered around the store for a while, taking it all in. Gift wrap, dishes, food, jewelry, candles, on and on. But I kept being drawn to the great selection of lamps.
I picked out a burlap lampshade. It was calling to me….”Lisa…..you NEED me…..”
Then I gathered up some more pretties and headed to check out.
When I got home I was all a twitter to play with my stuff.
I pulled everything out of the bag and studied my treasures.
I was sad to see there was a casualty. In this Texas heat I should have known better than to leave the candles in a “bendy” spot in the car. One of them didn’t make it home in the same shape I bought it, but it’s OK….the rest of the things were perfect.
I clipped apart the flowers, stuck some skewers into the little felt pumpkins and tucked it all into the blue Thanksgiving bucket. I hung the lamp, and arranged it all together on the table by my couch. In just 20 minutes I was ready to sit and admire my pretty side table.
It’s fresh and new and happy and welcoming.
It’s hard for me to decide which I like better. Is it the burlap lamp, or the globe, or the fall bucket?
I even used the paper they wrapped my breakables in to make little paper curls. I just cut it into strips and curled it like curling ribbon.
