Well hey, what happened there? We interrupt this unplanned blog break with a real live blog update! Thanks to the sweet friends that have been gently nagging me about it! Even though I haven't been blogging, there has been plenty going on around here. For instance, this past weekend we were in Missouri visiting my dad and doing a little antiquing when my jewel of a husband spotted a gorgeous milk glass plug-in pendant light which he convinced me to buy even though I was pretty sure it would be a $65 mistake. We pulled into the driveway after a 7 hour drive on Sunday and he immediately ran to Lowe's to get the parts he needed to convert it to the ceiling fixture... of...my...dreams!
Well it turns out that he was right and I was wrong! Hear that Sweetie? I admit it. In writing. For posterity!
For two years we've lived with hideous brass and wood ceiling fans in our family room because I could not make up my mind what I wanted. I've researched, walked the aisles at Lowes, pored over catalogs, decided, changed my mind and have been unwilling to commit. I was so busy overthinking the decision for this spot that I was frozen with indecision. My man is the impulsive one that makes decisions with very little thought. It often bites him in the backside. I am the one that takes forever to make a decision. It often bites me in the backside.
Here's the before. Hard to imagine how I could part with that beauty, isn't it?
And here is the one on the other side of the room. Almost as pretty, right? Sadly this one remains but if I go in the kitchen and stand in a certain spot I can only see the new fixture and the slipcovered chair in the corner and not the sofa and loveseat that are falling apart with the brass and cherry ceiling fan anchoring the area.
So I'm finally tired of thinking about it and I'm getting ready to order this one which is pricey but I'm trying to justify it because the new light was much less than I planned on spending. If you know of anyplace I can find one similar to the one below for less than $384, I'd love to hear about it as I got a stomach ache just typing that!
