We don’t really do Christmas. At all. Ever.

Mostly I try to keep my head down and wait for this excruciatingly long holiday season to pass. If I have to hear that goddamn hippo song one more time! I’ll just…I don’t know, be annoyed I guess.

My secret shame is that I love all the crazy Christmas lights that come with the season. I caved in and bought a string of small clear globe lights at Target. The sansevieria in the bedroom ended up being our faux “Christmas tree”. Poor thing.

Thrifty!

I picked up this pair of Original BTC England Hector Pleat table lamps at the Angel View Thrift in Palm Springs.

They totally had me fooled.

The cloth cord, the old style plug, even the tags underneath were skillfully designed to appear vintage. Well, they aren’t vintage, but I still think they’re groovy.

Once you go black…

We’re still finishing it all up, but that wall is definitely black.

I smell decorating brewing and it smells mmm mmm musty. Like a thrift store…
