Pendant Light

I've had my eye on these pendant lights from Pottery Barn for a long time. I imagined two of them hanging above my kitchen island. What I love about these particular pendants is their clear glass dome. 

Since I have a very tall hubby, I didn't want anything with color that you couldn't see through. That would be really annoying always having to move out of the way in order to see across the room. Plus I just love their simple shape and the filament bulb is fab. So I've been checking the PB outlet for these. I was so excited a couple months ago when I walked in and saw my precious light staring right back at me. These lights go for $99 in the PB catalog--although I looked them up this morning and they're on sale for $79. So when I saw this light for $25 at the outlet, I gobbled that puppy right on up. As I was looking it over on the way up to the register, I noticed the slightest ding out of the glass globe. So I decided to ask for a discount. Never be afraid to ask--there's no harm in asking, right? So the lady gave me an additional 40% off! Score for me. I was so thrilled at my find that I thought, "Hey since I was able to get this one at such a good price, I can afford to buy the other one at regular price." Like my logic? Well needless-to-say, my cheap self held out hoping to find another one some day at the outlet. That day was last night. And this one is in perfect condition. Paid $25. I'm excited to hang these up--it'll be a little while since we're doing a lot of renovating at the moment. Can't wait to show you the finished product!

I also spotted this light at the outlet. It was a sweet deal at $25 too. It's no longer available from the PB catalog.
And this light I almost got last night. I'm looking for a pendant to put above my bathtub. I had to call Mitch on this one 'cause it was $50.

I think it would have looked awesome but Mitch wasn't sold. I kinda regret not getting it. They only had one and a few minutes after I called M, someone bought it. Shoot. Will I forever regret not jumping on it? This is what it looks like hanging over a tub.

Crap, yeah I do regret not getting it. Well maybe they'll have another one at the outlet some day. Keep your fingers crossed for me, would ya?


  1. I LOVE the second two lights! Yes, you should have gotten the star, but maybe when you find it next time it will be another 40% off and you will be glad you passed on it the first time.

  2. I can't believe that, those are my dream pendant lights!! Amazing deal and I love the other two lights you passed up. You should have at least bought then sold on ebay or craiglist. Can't wait to see the pendants up. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. I'll keep my fingers crossed :)

  5. Oh I will definitly be keeping my fingers crossed for you for that other light because I LOVE it! So cute. I found you on the blog hop and am loving your blog. Although this post is totally making me miss stores! We just moved to a remote island in the middle of the Bering Sea from Pennsylvania 2 months ago and well, there are NO stores. Okay we do have a grocery store and a ship supply store...but that's it. And unfortunatly most online stores wont ship here. So I am going to follow you blow and live vicariously through you :)
    Stop over at my blog and check me out.
