It's amazing just how many small projects I have going on in my head at the moment. So many that I completely forget about them until something comes along on the world wide web that suddenly jolts me into that project again. These beautiful little hooks are just that. We have hooks hanging in our hallway, which are pretty basic, and probably something you wouldn't even look twice at. Which is of course why I want to swap them out - and not with just anything, no no. I have to find beautiful handmade, teak, hooks that are $15 a pop. They also have an awesome guitar hook, which is something I've been wanting to exist for a while, and might just have to order as well.

Check out this lovely store here, they also have great lighting, which actually how I found it in the first place.

I've been searching for an annoyingly long time for a lamp for the living room. With so man things in our house, patience has paid off and we've found great deals, weather that be at a thrift store, garage sale, etc., but not in the lamp department. I've been hunting around for an awesome vintage one and no luck. I'm starting to realize sometimes you just have to buck up and pay full price for something and get on with it. Now that I've come to terms with that I of course can't decide which I like best...

Alright let's be honest I like the west elm one the best, and it's of course the most expensive. I haven't come to terms with spending that much on a damn lamp yet, and probably never will. I'm thinking world market is where it's at, though it doesn't come with the shade, which is slightly irritating, but oh well.
