New Desk & Lamps Via Wayfair

I am so grateful to be a part of Wayfair Homemakers Program. First of all, I've always considered myself a "homemaker", even when it wasn't such a popular term. 

I've always felt that keeping the home fires burning and raising children was perhaps the most important career of all. Even when others didn't think of this as a vocation. 

I love everything about home and garden. Tending to chores. Organizing. Creating gardens. I think I was just born to be a homemaker! Making quilts and decorating.

With Wayfair, each month I get to choose two items from their list for myself, gifted from them to me as part of their program. 

Last week I received my choices for March:

I absolutely love these red lamps by Safavieh. They sold them in pairs. So this counted as one choice. 

They are quite tall. I thought they might look nice with my red and white buffalo checked curtains from Primitive Star Quilt Shop as a backdrop.


I also chose this white desk with three drawers that you can't really get a good look at in this photo. 

It took Israel forever Friday to figure this one out. It was nearly dark while he was working on it, and so I ordered us a pizza. 

I thought it looked like an easy piece to put together just looking at it online. Boy, was I wrong!

He ended up making about $20 an hour on this little project. Because it took a good five hours!

I think he wants nothing to do with drawers for awhile!


Of course this meant furniture had to be moved around to accommodate new things coming in. 

My coffee bar came back out of the kitchen to it's old place.


And this table I brought with me from Texas, which I was using as a computer desk, ended up here in the living room.



Charlie Ross seems to be saying: "Enough with moving things already!" 

He won't be too happy with me this afternoon because he and his sister are going to the vet for their yearly shots.


I received free product from Wayfair. But all opinions are 100% my own.

    1. I couldn't believe when I saw those lamps pop up. I've want some of those brand lamps forever. But they usually sell in pairs and they are NOT cheap!

    1. I had family photos there, but the sun coming in the window melted the glue on the back of the picture frames and they tore up!

    1. I have two Featherweights. The black one you saw, and I have a white one I got on eBay ages ago in the closet. However, I can't use them anymore with my ankle.

  12. Brenda...I love what you have done! You have inspired me to create a tabletop pitcher display. I love love love yours. I too like being considered a homemaker. As a teacher I was able to manage both career and home until babies came along, at which point I later becae a full time homemaker and stay at home mother. I was bucking the trend at the time too. I am finding that my daughter's generation is making the stay at home with the children decision...but sometimes it is the dad that stays at home now. ha! Sheila

    1. I remember when I my kids were little. Their dad was a psychology instructor, and sometimes we had to go to these events. People would introduce themselves and then ask what I did. When I said I was a mom and housewife (back then for some reason we didn't say homemaker), they'd go quiet. Guess they thought I just watched soap operas and ate bon-bons all day. I'm proud to be a homemaker too. We work hard, don't we?

  22. Your lamps are so pretty. I love Wayfair. Like you, I love being a homemaker, although I never thought I would. I was a militant feminist back in high school and college, and my life was all mapped out as a career woman. But after going on maternity leave with my first child, I was surprised to find I loved nesting and homemaking. So I've been a stay-at-home wife and mom since and I've never regretted it.

  27. I absolutely love the red lamps, so pretty in front of the check curtains, and the white pitchers.. Your house is adorable.
    The white cabinet is really pretty too. Proud Israel put it together for you.
    Love being a homemaker too.. I worked as Respiratory Therepist before retiring, but always wished I could be a full time home maker. Such a blessing.

  28. New pops of red....really pretty. I have been in a bit of a "red mode" lately. Just a few touches here and there....I seem to gravitate to blue, yellow & red! Happy colors.
