You'll find this post at several Linky Parties. Please check them out for some great ideas.
From a previous post, I showed the outdoor Christmas decorations.
When I took the lights off the 3 trees on the porch, I took them to the garage to store them when I noticed the old kitchen light fixture I hadn't gotten rid of yet. So, I stuffed the string of lights into the light fixture and decided to see what it would look like.
While some folks are totally turned off by brass, I don't mind it especially in a setting like this. Funny who determines what is nice looking. While old stuff is the thing, there seems to be a fine line between what is retro and what is outdated. Who makes those laws? During daylight you can tell its brass but when the sun goes down, who knows the difference? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Like the Christmas lights, these lights work off the timer.
Now to decide about something to go under the kitchen window again. I take my time about these things and when I see it or think of it, I'll know its right in a matter of seconds. Yes, there definitely needs to be some work done on landscaping. That comes in time as well.
