I'm a Woman of My Word...

Well, not so long ago I pledged here exclusively that I would someday own a piece of furniture from Nadeau.  Just to prove to you all that I am NOT just a lot of decor talk - TADA!  I now own my very own piece of Nadeau furniture!

I bought this Queen Anne cabinet for the bargain price of $246!  I'm telling you - Nadeau is a deal!  (Between now and the end of the year, they are opening up their warehouse in the ATL every Saturday - more about that later.)  I also purchased a bamboo chair that I had imagined sitting next to each other in my entry way - but I have found another purpose for the chair.  I will post about that another time.  My entry way is a work in progress, so I will post pics of the entire area when I reach the finish line.  I'm almost for now you can check out the cabinet.

And in another twist this weekend - I went for some birthday shopping at the outlet malls up in Dawsonville, GA (where it just so happens I bought myself a Kelly Green Kate Spade purse - but, I digress).  I found my way to the Restoration Hardware store - and found the coolest lamps I have ever seen.  Our front living room has been sans lighting since we moved in.  So - we haven't really been able to use that room after the 7 o'clock hour.  I have been searching all about - but just haven't been able to find the right fit.  Well - Restoration Hardware has won a special place in my heart - right next to The Barn!  I had never seen these lamps in the store or online - and I am an avid follower of this fine establishment's website.  The ladies in the store could not tell me from what collection the lamps were - so I am unable to provide details - and cannot tell you where to find these lamps for yourself.  (sigh)  But here they are - and I paid $230 for both of them!  Any of you who have purchased, or coveted, Restoration Hardware items know that this price is a modern miracle...
How cool are those?  I've never seen anything like them - and they really give the room a nice twist.  This room, too, is a work in progress - so I will post pics of the whole room once we finish hanging pics, etc.  But I am loving my find!
