Tea & Lights

I was at Meijer recently when I was shopping for essentials that I can't get at Aldis.

I walked by the small appliance section when I was stopped in my tracks.

I saw this-

It is an electric tea kettle. It is beautiful.
I have a tea kettle. It is stainless steel and okay looking, but not pretty. I use my tea kettle for lots of different things and so it sits out on my counter all the time. I have no complaints about how mine works. It works great. But it doesn't look like this. So very pretty.

I did some searching online and found another one. I'm not sure which one I like better. I think the flowery one.

I've also been searching for a light fixture for our dining room. I've seen plenty that are okay. But nothing that feels just right. Until I found these.

Too bad the prices aren't in our budget right now. I'm not sure what size or color I would want. I think the blue one.

Then I wondered, Could I make a bushel light of my own? 
I found a few who have tried.

Here is this one from Design Sponge-

  Pretty, right?

And then this one from Etsy-

A little rustic, but I like it. I think I may try it. I'm not sure if I would use a real bushel basket or build something with wood slats to make it look like a bushel basket. And maybe this light would be better in our entryway instead of our dining room. I'm just not sure yet. 

Apple season is right around the corner though! (along with school :/)
