It’s Happening!!

We have this family joke of exclaiming “It’s happening!!  It’s happening!!” when something fairly exciting is going on.  It all occurred a long time ago, in Ireland, when we were driving on a dirt road and a bunch of sheep crossed the road and my mom exclaimed at the top of her lungs “It’s happening!!  It’s happening!!”  The saying stuck.  I had a “It’s happening” moment yesterday when I read the Material Girls Blog and I found out about cordless lamps.  That’s right cordless.

I feel like we’ve all waiting a very long time for some cordless lamp action and I couldn’t be more exciting that it’s finally happening.  You know those times when you want a console table behind your floating sofa with two matching lamps but you just don’t want to drag the chord all the way across the room?  Well, I run into that problem and it’s no fun.

Modern Lantern has come up with the cordless solution: these lamps operate off a lithium ion battery and LED bulb duo and can last 15 hours when fully charged. And they are stylish…

No chords whatsoever.  Wow!  So happy that it’s happening.  You?

    Hilarious story, Kate! I can picture your Mom saying that. These lamps are such a great idea. Now, if only they could come down in price a bit… : )

    FINALLY. I swear I’ve said so many times “with all of the technology we have how do lamps still need cords?!” They must have heard me 🙂 I hope these slowly but surely replace all cords!
