On the second week on my "making the apartment an nicer place to live" resolution the lighting in the apartment got a bit of a shake up - although this wasn't my original intention.
This week Rich and I headed to Japan City (cute little Japanese import store) as I'd seen some cute monkey hooks that I thought we could add to our bathroom to hang towels from. Unfortunately the wee monkey hooks were all gone.
But whilst we were there we saw that they had LOADS of paper lanterns on sale for a really good price (the ones we bought were $5 each).
I've always loved paper lanterns and the light fittings that were in the apartment when we rented it were very boring. I'm pretty sure this is the standard "light fitting landlords always buy for their properties".
Well this lampshade and three others just like it are sitting in the storage cupboard (well after the mountain of dust was cleared off them). They have been replaced by these lanterns - for now at least - upon our departure the standard boring fittings will return.
Hope you've all been having a good weekend!
