snaps on saturday & things around my house (all at the same time--woohoo)

New lamp.

Gorgeous lamp by a local artisan, Sue Johnson. Actual birch leaves pressed into the lamp shade. Love how it looks in the room, lit or not.

I don't exactly love the light it casts within the room, though (there used to be a super-cheap torche in that same spot---an uplight). I wasn't sure if I was going to keep this lamp in this spot though, once I saw how dark the room became with the lighting being cast downwards instead of upwards.

After a bit of and experimenting I have decided to keep it where it is. I just need some uplights on the other side of the room now instead. I'm thinking I'm going for uplights on top of the bookcases.
