For months I had been looking for lamps for my kitchen counter. I needed the lamps to serve a dual purpose, allow adequate lighting at nights (I don't like using overhead lights if I don't have to) and I felt my counter needed some character.
Although I had a night light, it wasn't cutting it
After several months of searching and practically giving up, I found them...
I remembered calling my son at home and asking him to measure the space between the counter and the bottom top cabinet. The lamps I had looked at prior were either too tall or to short or just plain ugly. But when I saw these lamps it hit me in my gut these were the ones - they were the right color, height and had the details I needed.
I scooped the last two off the shelf and brought them home with me.
I like the charm the lamps add to my kitchen decor.
Sometimes it takes patience, or like my sister say's, "You know when it's right because it just hits you...you can feel it in your guts!"
