Wes and I were running some errands about two weeks ago, and were on our way home when he -- totally unprompted! -- asked if I wanted to stop in a local antiques shop. Well, he knew what the answer would be. What he didn't know, was that we'd be coming out with a fabulous antique lantern to hang in the dining room (yes, like I've been wanting!).
It's a bit smaller than the one I spotted in Fayetteville (and didn't cost as much, either), is brass and has possibly been painted. Whatever, the finish, I love it.
We had some wiring work done at a local lamp shop (Palmer's) and I'm just patiently waiting for Wes to get back from his business trip this weekend so we can hang it. Probably should have waited to show it until then, but I knew I could count on you people to share in my excitement.
