I am holding our little dog Ellie. Aren't my Dad and Mom cute! I am blessed to call them my parents.
Here we are with the addition of my hubby Dan.
In other news...I am trying to get more done on my latest pattern little by little, wow where does the time go? Next month we will be doing Christmas in July on PFATT Marketplace, I will need to come up with something Christmas for that. I am hoping inspiration will hit me on the head!!
I love interesting lighting in my home. I am so picky that I still have some empty sockets and my home was built in 2007! I have recently aquired a few more I thought I would share here. My preference is reproductions and actual antiques. I love the look of old style lighting and it goes with my home very well.
Here is my latest light for my master bathroom, I thought it was the perfect touch. This particular light is a reproduction of an oldie.
In this close up you can see the pretty design!
Another addition is the light you see hanging here. This is an actual re-wired antique with newer glass.
I love the shape and the bulk of this particular light.
This light above my entry door is also an actual antique that was re-wired and the glass is original as well.
I would love to know where these lights have been, the homes they have graced and the stories they might tell!
The light in my turret is an antique with reproduction glass.
My turret "hmmm not sure if that is how you spell that!" light was all rusty, so they had to sand blast the metal, re-wire and then hand paint. I think this light is spectacular.
This is the empty room off our bedroom, I have yet to do any decorating up there, someday... The light can be the start. This light is another antique, I think it looks like a cake, so I call it my cake light!
Very cake-like don't you think?
This is my dining room light, it is a reproduction of the victorian era lighting.
Here is another reproduction. Wow that bulb in that clear glass has got to go! I definitely need clear for that one. I love this french glass, so lovely.
I have many of these old school house type lights in my home, I really love them! All my school house lights are reproductions.
This medallion is still waiting for the perfect light. This will house my entry staircase light. I antiqued this medallion with a gel stain. Gel stains are great because they are forgiving. You put it on and wipe the excess off with a rag leaving the creases darker.
Well that's it for now. I hope my lighting post did not bore you to tears. LOL I just love lighting, it is jewelry for you house and makes such a difference in the look of a room.
Have a wonderful day until next time!
