Meet Charlie

I've been eyeing this puppy up since the fall of 2010 at a really cool lighting company in Charleston.  I told myself if it is there the next time you go in (for work mind you) that you can "consider" it. 

Enter Saturday afternoon.  I had to go there to get some new lamp shades for work and there he is, just staring at me, begging me to buy him.  I talk the owner down 20% and low and behold my dining room goes from this:

To this:

Yes, I realize that there are two Christmas reindeer in the background.  They make me smile when I see them and yes, maybe I don't feel like dragging the step stool out to get them down, but whatever.  It is my house.  :) 

Could I have been more responsible and saved my money, yep I sure could have.  But when you fall in love you do stupid things and boy do I love Charlie.
