Good things come to those who wait…

If you follow our blog regularly you know that we don’t buy the first thing that comes along when looking for furniture, fixtures, etc. but look for that special item(s) that will fit the Villa perfectly.

We’re pretty well covered already in the lamp department except for the kids’ rooms upstairs. Sometime last spring, or was it just after summer holidays (can’t really remember anymore), I was getting something from our local K-rauta and browsed through the lamp department and bang – there they were! The perfect lamps for the kids’ rooms.

For some reason or another I, for once, didn’t purchase them immediately. I did take pictures and at home with the Other Half there was mutual consensus that these were the lamps we will get. Never just got around to buying them as the months dragged on.

The Other Half attempted to buy them at the local K-rauta before Christmas, but there was only one left and the box was all banged up – no purchase.

Well yesterday on the way somewhere else we made a pitstop at another nearby K-rauta and made a quick browse through the lamp department. Can you believe what was there??? The lamps we wanted, 2 pieces only left, on clearance sale for -50%. That just pretty much made my day! I doubt I’ve ever grabbed anything off the shelf in the hardware store that fast. So as the title says, it this case, good things came to those who waited 🙂WP_000100

Now these babies are in the garage waiting to be installed (with just a few other items, plus the few other items in the back storage) a bit later on in the spring.
