Around Town

School has started and I have a bit more free time.  I spent the day shopping Tuesday.  These brass giraffes are what I brought home.  I found them at a consignment store for a song and couldn't resist.  I'm looking for a chest to put in my family room, and it will need some accessorizing.  I recently redid the room for One Room Challenge, and added some brass accessories and brass drapery rods and rings.  The mother giraffe is roughly 9x9, so the pair will be helpful in having the brass balance on the wall that hasn't been completed with the other side of the room that is finished.

My sister and I visited Dallas Market Center.  One of our favorite showrooms carries Visual Comfort.  I wasn't thinking about taking photos until I saw this chandelier.

Then I spotted this one.

What do you think?  I think it's gorgeous and such a far cry from my kind of boring and very traditional crystal chandelier.  I've been wanting to liven things up a bit and this would do that without being too much for my Colonial Revival house to handle.

Then we went to Again and Again.  I've posted about that before.  I can't go there without wanting lots of amazingness.  This mirror is one of them.  

And this mirror is another.  I would paint it any number of high gloss paint colors.  What color do you see on it?

I love these chairs, and someone else does, too.

There's no place in my house for these etageres, but aren't they amazing?

These were the prettiest things I saw Tuesday.  Do you see anything you like?  

Happy Friday!

Ooooh! So much to love. I really like the chandeliers. I have been wanting to switch out more than a few of my ugly brushed nickel fixtures.
