Spiffy & swell new lighting & wall art

capiz shell

Every little home improvement in my house I call a major accomplishment.  Why?  I’m pretty lazy when it comes to decorating!  I have lots of art to hang and projects to do, but somehow they never get done.  So last night, I was determined to get a lamp and have William install it in my dining room. He didn’t even complain one bit. I guess he loves me so much that he’s happy to do an occasional DIY project.

Anyway, I have always loved capiz shells and the way the shimmer with their iridescent finish. i looked at several options at World Market, but decided to go with this one. These little shells just make me so happy and I love the abundance of circles!


I also picked up this piece. For a brief moment, I considered making my own version, but with all my Halloween crafting, I couldn’t see that happening anytime soon. This is another piece I’ve eyed for a long time and it’s going to pull together the colors of my living room and dining room!

So score one for me!  I need to focus on painting my Ikea cabinet and the kitchen in the near future, but until then I’m going to procrastinate and work on other stuff. At least I’m honest with myself.

Until next time Swellions!
