My New Stacked Crystal Lamp from Target

Budget Decor: My New Stacked Crystal Lamp from Target

The hunt for a stacked crystal ball lamp ended today! I finally found one at Target (recommended by some readers) and I loved it. It's not as luxe as the Pottery Barn one, and I never did see the one at JCPenney, but for $35.99, I think it's exactly what my desk needed! It's the perfect size and I love how the balls go from big to small. In the store I was afraid it looked too plastic-y, but at home, it looks fantastic! Thanks again to everyone for sharing your feedback. Depending on what you're looking for, I think both Target and JCPenney offer great versions of this classic style lamp that will add a chic touch to your home.

New Site Spotlight: One Kings Lane

Eco-friendly, durable and grown pesticide-free, this handsome hemp doggie bed by Harry Barker has earned its stripes. ($59-$79 at

In this month's issue of All You magazine, I discovered a home decor site that offers limited-time only sales on designer goodies called One King's Lane. It's like Gilt or Rue La La for the home! Today's sale on Harry Barker dog beds might be when I make my first purchase. I've learned from experience that it's better to buy a quality bed that will last for years than a bunch of cheap ones that wear out quickly (except when they are accident-prone puppies). Please accept my invitation to and let me know what you think!
