I've seen the Light ...


So ... the above picture is of my dining room with the light fixture that hung above my table for almost 20 years. If you are wondering just how the heck I was able to clean that thing ... just remember that I asked myself that question for almost 20 years. This year my children came together and bought me a new chandelier for my birthday.

Question: Were they more tired of looking at the dusty panels during family dinners or were they just tired of hearing me complain about it?


Who cares?!? Here's a picture of my new fixture. Easy to clean, twice as much light and best of all ... it doesn't reek of 1991. Thanks kiddos. I will try really ... really ... hard not to find something else to complain about to take its place.

ha-ha. I had the same old chandelier with the glass for some 20 years also! It was a pain! Now, I have almost the exact same chandelier as your new one! I'm sure that it is from the same manufacture!!!! XO

The picture doesn't do it justice, but it really is a nice change. Of course, we have one less tie to the 80's. This is so much more simplehappyhome style and so less late 20th century casino. I never realized how dated the old one was until seeing it in a picture. And don't we have the most thoughtful kids!!!

Looks great! Like PDaddy, I'm suddenly horrified at the look of the old one.
