Here goes nothing!

Let me start off by saying that I have been looking at exterior lighting until my EYES have crossed!  Seriously, it's been months  weeks that I have been looking at outdoor lighting.  I think I have FINALLY decided on what I will purchase for the new house.

See, as you all know, I'm cheap.   The problem has been, when I DO find something I like it's like $700 for ONE light.  And we all know that doesn't fly with me, lol.  Nope, not even if I could, I wouldn't.  Well maybe the gas lanterns I saw I might...... I digress!    I also like BIG lighting outdoors.  So that was another one of the stipulations of the lights I have looked for.    These are on the "fancy" side, but I think they are the perfect thing to dress it up a little out there.  And the prices are TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.  So I need to snap them up quickly!!!!   I love acanthus leaves..........

So what do you think?  Yay? Nay?  Wonderful?  Or what am I thinking?? LOL!   Thanks for coming along this crazy ride with me!  I still need to take pics of the siding samples with the brick and roof and door.  Hopefully this week!  Phheewwww!

One more thing......  we meet with the framer tomorrow morning, and he's starting TOMORROW!!!  WOOO HOOOOO!!!!!!!!  :)

Kristi- I hope you are taking a little time in between all your decision making to just enjoy the fact that you are finally doing this. I'm so thrilled for you. I love your new lights and love how big lights make such a statement on the outside of a house. Can't wait to see more.

Beautiful choices! How very exciting for you. My husband & I just changed our outdoor lights yesterday and I agree - go big or go home! When we built our home 7 years ago, we settled for tiny builder issue lights that never looked quite right. Now, the new beefier sized lights are perfect! Looking forward to followign your progress!
