My Lucky Monday

Remember this awesome lantern giveaway by Brown and Cote de Texas? Well I got an email this morning saying I am the lucky new owner of a Custom Iron and Glass Lantern! I am so excited and thankful to be in receipt of such an incredibly generous prize--especially since Joni had to be breaking records with the number of contest entries!

Jill Brown, the owner of Brown is letting me choose between the four candle lantern (seen in one of Joni's installations in the top photo) and the single bulb version. While I love both, I think the solo with filament bulb will look really great in our house. The best part is that my husband likes it too--it's a miracle! I have a couple of places that I am considering hanging it, so stay tuned for the reveal...

Just in case you were wondering which item I chose as part of Brown's 1st Dibs Shopping Spree contest, it was the vintage bar bells. I love the classic shape and think they would make clever doorstops!

Thanks again to Cote de Texas and Brown for picking little ol' me to win this amazing prize! What a great way to start the week! If you would like a lantern of your own (or any of Jill's other interesting finds) be sure to visit the Brown 1st Dibs store. I am off to do the happy dance!

These lanterns are so great! They add a rustic feel to the room, warming and charming. Lucky you, that's so great that you won this beautiful fixture. Does Brown have any window designs that would go well with such a find? I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.
