New Lamps for Old

Last day before the big move and we finally found some table lamps we like for the living room.

We've been looking in several department stores for a while and nothing had grabbed us. Today we visited two specialist lamp and shade shops, but still saw nothing we liked. On the way home we stopped in Target to recheck their selection, and found a couple of lamps which suited both our tastes and our pockets. Heavy enough to discourage cat-tipping with walnut wooden bodies with metal base for heft, 3-way bulb settings for mood lighting,  and separate shades so we could mix and match. We've gone for tan shades, and if they're too shady we can easily return them for some cream ones.

We still have to fix on lamps for our night stands, but until the bedroom is all set up we're holding off. We will also need a new shower curtain set and possibly rail for one of the three bathrooms, and I want to get more towels so I can use any of them at will for a shower, but I'm holding off until I can get these using my employee discount at WalMart.  Our first set of US towels came from Fred Meyer, and they don't strike me as anything special in the towel line that we can't get cheaper at WalMart.

It's a bright sunny day today, so hopefully we should be rain free tomorrow for the move.
