Thy Search Ends Hither- antique bulbs

Thy Search Ends Hither

I have a busy life:

Waking up, going to work, stopping at the grocery store, the cleaners, squeezing in gym days when I can find the time… I just need a break from the hustle and bustle of my rushed day. One would expect to find that at home; they would be wrong. The second I step through the door there is always something that needs cleaning or cooking and I feel like I just cannot catch a break. Over are the days where work stopped at work. Now we have e-mails, cell phones and other technological devices that make it impossible to fully shut myself off from work.

I came to the conclusion that I would create a relaxation room for myself. I spent weeks designing the room with soothing colors and furniture. When I finally finished, I set aside and two hours a week to do nothing but relax in my de- stressing room. The room was fantastic, but I could not help but feel that something was missing. I was browsing online when day when I stumbled upon an ad for vintage light bulbs on BulbAmerica.com. I decided that they would be a real asset to my relaxation room and I purchased them. It was without a doubt one of the best appliances I could have bought to suit my needs. The bulb emits a light unlike any other due to their unique carbon filaments. It is a golden, warm color that reminds me earlier and simpler times, such as those of the 20th century. The bulbs somehow manage to change my rushed frazzled mood to calm, cool and, collected. They even make my room more elegant and sophisticated looking with their dimming options. My search for the missing “it” factor to my room finally ended. I now have my own little sanctuary and escape from reality…. Even if it is for only two hours a week.
