Remember the sconces I found on Craigslist from Restoration Hardware?  

Here is a picture of the matching floor lamps at RH.  They are listed at $359 each.

Restoration Hardware
Last weekend my mom and I were shopping at Tuesday Morning, and we found these copycat floor lamps that work perfect in our living room.  I actually like these lamp shades better than the plain white ones at RH and the price tag was much lower!

Cost per lamp = $69.  Nice deal (& thanks mom)!

Also, I wanted to post a few pictures of our now filled bookshelves!  Last week Eric's grandma, Shirley, came and secretly decorated the bookshelves for my birthday.  Isn't that sweet?

Now our living room is fully complete with the bookshelves filled!! On to the next room...

Thanks for stopping by,
