Shhh - Don't Tell Joanie

My sister-in-law Joanie is an interior designer and helped us with our new light fixture, so I made her this bag. It was designed by another interior designer for carrying samples around.

It is really big.

Really big. (Excuse the blurry photo; the auto focus doesn't seem to work with the self-timer.)

Light - At Last

The Monday before Thanksgiving, the ceiling fixture blew. Annoying since Thanksgiving was to be at our house. What to do? The fixture was beyond repairing, so we took it down, installed a ceramic socket and stuck on a clip on shade over the bare bulb. Stunning. Don't believe me? See for yourself.

Didn't I tell you?

We eventually found a light fixture we liked. I think it looks pretty good.

Another view.

It is so nice to be able to see at night.

First Monday, 2009

All resolutions take effect on the first Monday of the New Year. No sense setting oneself up for immediate failure. (I always find weekends detrimental to the proper execution of a good resolution.)

With that out of the way -

Have a Happy and Blessed New Year!
