Our Sputnik Lights – Installed and Fabulous

Tom's Pics - Wedding and Lapham House 027Happy Monday, all!  Well, the sputnik lights are officially installed and we put in the special lightbulbs in the mail.  Thanks to AtomicIndy on Twitter for suggesting the Westinghouse Starlight bulb and this site to buy said bulbs from. We would have floundered around the net aimlessly without it! 🙂

So, here is the light, installed and functioning beautifully.  By the by, we got two of these lovlies from our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Love that place!

You can see the new wallpaper in the background, and I think the whole combo just looks totally 50’s fab. Hubs is very pleased as well.

Hope to take some more pictures soon, but I am frantically cleaning now.  We are having the photographers come on Saturday, and then in the afternoon we are going to have our housewarming open house. If anyone is in Midland, Michigan that weekend, they are welcome to come!

    I would love to come to your open house, Ruth, but Midland is a little over 3 hours from here. Don’t know if me or Bob are up physically for the trip. Dadgumit.

    The lights are absolutely gorgeous, gorgeous enough to make me faint dead away!

    Thanks, Amy!

    Don’t faint, Sable! I’d have to drive three hours to pick you up off the floor. 😉

    Thanks, Tiki – I will let you know how it goes!

    Oh my god, those are the best lights EVER!!! You are so lucky to have found them at Restore. I’ll bet those bulbs cost you more than the lights did! They look fantastic with the new wallpaper. Oh how I wish I could come to your open house, I would love to see your awesome home in person. Good luck with the photo session, I know you will do great!
