my current collection of design books is starting to look quite pathetic... so i went "window shopping" on amazon in search of what i'm missing... one by one or possibly all at once (under the christmas tree perhaps? ha, a girl can dream... right?) these books need a new home on my shelves...
today i read the best news ever! (dramatic, i know) but seriously ladies, hold your breath.....

these lovely lights are budget conscious and they come in a variety of colors!
