Synchronicity. A few weeks ago, we ate at a little neighborhood French bistro. It wasn't the first time we'd eaten there, but this time we became fixated on the chandeliers with their fabulous Edison light bulbs, those old-fashioned clear bulbs where the carbon filament is visible (they're really gorgeous, but they're difficult for amateurs like us to photograph -- see pic below the jump). We did some research to find out where you can buy them. But we hadn't actually gotten around to blogging them yet.
Then last night we were doing our usual blog check, and saw that Joanna had written about Edison light bulbs here. And, amazingly enough, we happened to look up during a promo for the TV show "The Riches," and there was Minnie Driver, framed by. . . Edison light bulbs. They're so beautiful, and dramatic. They emit a soft glow, are long-lasting, and make us want to find a great chandelier. About $15-$25. Available at Antique Hardware and Home, Rejuvenation, Lehmans, and House of Antique Hardware.
