{Patience is a Virtue}

One I haven't mastered yet, but it's a virtue nontheless.

My patience was recently rewarded. I've wanted to replace the
light fixture in our dining room since the day we moved in. The
light I originally fell in love with was about four times what I was
willing to pay. So, I looked around and found another -- and then
waited and waited for it to go on sale. Good thing I did because it
was half off the other weekend. As soon as I saw the sale online,
I jumped in the car and snapped it up.

The much hated before fixture.

And the much reduced new fixture.

Ahhh. So. Much. Better.

we finally got bedside lamps yesterday - finding lighting is my biggest home decor challenge I think.
