the original light i wanted to get for the dining room was a little out of the budget at around $500, so i settled for another that i found at home depot. i haven't been terribly fond of it, but figured it would do until i could find something better. i was finally able to go yard sale-ing saturday with arah and mom in a great neighborhood and i came across this super cute dragon fly sconce.
the people selling it had just bought the house and took it down because it didn't fit their needs in a bedroom. i know it's not a traditional dining room fixture, but i REALLY love it!! i figured if merv didn't like it i could just sell it, but he likes it too. plus, it doesn't hang down as far over the tabe like the chandelier does. and the table i'm getting is one of the taller square tables so it will be out of the way. plus, it's kind of like it's own conversation piece. i mean really, how many dragon fly lights do you actually see?
