I took a photo for you all .... to show you the pretty chandelier I got at a garage sale last summer for just $10. I have shown it before but we'd not had it installed.... so now its up and looking great. I love the brightness too if we need a decent light ... or else just turn down the dimmer switch for something soft and sweet. Our little home is very modest but it's cozy and warm, and very comfortable. I try to decorate it like the house I had in Australia with lots of white and in a shabby chic mode.
Heavens ... we woke up this morning in our little northern town in British Columbia to a foot or more of snow. I took a photo of that as well. It was so funny. I looked out and saw my deck furniture covered completely... and I'm guessing the little deer will be returning today in a whole herd because there is nowhere to find food when the conditions are like this. Mid April ... it should be nice sunny weather. But hey! I love the snow so it doesn't matter. It will soon be gone again (hopefully) and the lawn can get growing. It's weird too that when you take a photo of snow it always comes out blue. I haven't even put the glass top on my table yet .. and just as well. And my bird feeders are completely covered over.
