Odds and Ends

Exciting times around the Pheasant's house! We have made a few small improvements here and there over the past few weeks while we prepare for a MAJOR upgrade. Major. Get ready! I digressssss....

I think the hardest thing about living in an old home is making your modern life (and things) fit. One small improvement was to the mudroom. I found the shelf at Potterybarn back in November and there was good and bad news. The bad news is that it was back-ordered for 7 weeks. The good news is that I used coupons and FREE shipping to get the shelf at a 50% discount. I love this little space to drop our coats, purses, and the baby carrier.

I also finally got around to ordering a new hallway light for upstairs from my FAVORITE store, School House Electric. We swapped the shade that came with the house with this super cool gray-striped one. Big improvement!

About the shade from the School House website:
An exact replica from the classic Schoolhouse era of the 1900’s to the 1950’s. This shade features a special, streamlined s-shaped profile known as an ogee, a design dating back as far as the 1600’s. An iconic, timeless addition to any room. Translucent white opal glass acts to diffuse and soften light. Hand-painted Shadow Gray stripe detailing. 

This exclusive shade is crafted on the banks of the Monongahela River in West Virginia. Each one is individually hand-blown in antique cast-iron moulds using traditional methods over 150 years old.
