I like this kitchen above…traditional, with exposed beams and glowing alabaster pendant lights hanging above the kitchen island. I never would have picked an alabaster pendant out of a line up…but seeing them in this kitchen got me thinking, “hey these look kind of nice”. So I got to calling around to find out pricing…of course the places I called were tres expensive and one woman said they couldn’t keep them in stock they get so many requests.
As you may know, alabaster is a mineral. It has been used to make carved items including statues, bowls and goblets. And, for years, in lieu of glass, alabaster has been used in lighting. It is translucent enough to allow light to glow throw but opaque enough to obscure a bright light bulb.
Could alabaster pendant lights be the the next hot thing in lighting? Hmmm…

What do you think of alabaster lighting? Like or dislike? I’m kind of liking!
P.S. Day 2 of being coy and mysterious – Day 1 did not go well. Yesterday, I started over sharing the minute I got in my car…I over shared with my best of friend AM and friend A.Ro while chatting on the phone. I got to the office and started gabbing to everyone about this and that. I am going to try again. Wish me luck!
P.P.S. Press Alert: A COCOCOZY pillow did in fact make the pages of the March issue of Real Simple magazine. A light blue COCOCOZY Fence Pillow made it into an editorial page about floral, gingham and trellis all going together! We are so thrilled. Our Fence pillow can be seen right in the fold of the layout on the center of the sofa. Yay! Reader Kristen from New York sent me an email yesterday saying she had seen it in the magazine! Thank you to Amy over at Real Simple for thinking of us!!!
