You know what I love? Alabaster. And alabaster glass. Like this:
And I loved it, for many years, over my kitchen sink:
But then I saw a whole bunch of stuff like this on Pinterest lately:

And then I got this FABULOUS gigantic, round light bulb from a friend of mine recently, and an idea was born:
It casts WAY more light into the entire room, since it's not shaded; and the open feel of the basket (from my garden, with a fresh coat of black spray paint on it) makes the archway and kitchen area seem a bit bigger and airier, and doesn't block my view into the living room as much.
Is that bulb not epic? Yeah, I have no idea what I'll do when it burns out, LOL. But for now, I love this new fixture.
It makes nifty shadows on the ceiling, too:
You know how I love that.
