A "Little Light" on the Subject

Last summer we moved my in-laws into a retirement complex. Once we got them moved our work just started. We had a lot of work ahead of us to ready their home for sale. Thank goodness it is only about a mile away from our house. My husband and Son-in-Law, Chris, worked for weeks and weeks, every weekend, all summer and into the fall. (I've said "work" three times, and that's what it was: work, work, work!)

There were two chandeliers, one in the entry and one in the dining room that we replaced, as things needed to be updated. I had the small one in mind for the kitchen, but I have a canned spot over the sink that provides much needed task lighting. Finally I nudged my husband enough that he hung it in front of the spot on a plant hook, and I have hidden the cord behind the curtain. Now, I use it when I'm in the mood for "pretty", and I still have my overhead for daily use.

More of that lovely 80's decor... the wonderful scalloped header more, on my "to do" project list.

It's hard to see, but there is a tiny cherub on it.

It really adds some interest above the sink and brightens things up.

Thanks honey!

Have a fun Friday!



  1. Great job- looking lovely- that is the exact faucet I need for my kitchen sink- mind sharing?

  2. As I get older, I need more and more light. There's just about no such thing as too much light for me anymore. I would probably have both lights turned on most of the time!

  3. How clever of yo! Love it! TTFN ~Marydon

  4. Love it, it really dresses up your space. I had the same valance in my kitchen, so cute and cheery.

  5. Have you ever noticed that I have that exact scalloped trim over my sink. It looks pretty good with that great fabric behind it. Love the chandelier. Jan

  6. Ok, I'm not generally a cherub gal, but that fixture rocks! ~Mindy

  7. Beautiful, Debra! Hey thanks for your kind thoughts, I really appreciate it. Have a great week-end


I love hearing from you. Feel free to comment, big or small.
