Let There Be Light

Hi Friends!

There are lights on but nobody is home (yet)!
All the light fixtures are in. I have to say that I am mostly happy with my choices.

One thing I notice that happens is you think the fixtures are going to be the right size for the room. For the most part I got that right but the lantern on the front porch is smaller than I imagined.

I had a certain criteria for that particular light though. Guess what it was?

It had to be easy to change the bulb. I know that sounds dumb but I do not want to climb high and take apart a fixture every time a bulb is out. Also, there is only one bulb that is very easy to change. So essentially I got what I wanted.
I took these pictures last night as this crazy storm was moving in. Clouds swiftly moved in and the wind took branches off trees and swirled them around in the air. I love storms like that...when I am home, not driving.

I wish I had more to share about the house today. The house doors are kept locked now because the floors are finished.

This week the landscapers start the yard and that will brighten things up.

On the personal front I don't have a whole lot of news because all I can do is read books about what happens to us when we die. I can't get enough of it. I'm not ready to get into that subject here but I want to know where my Mom is. She can't possibly just be gone. We love each other too much! (that story HERE)
Speaking of moms I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day. Mine was great in the day time but once evenings come - I am a mess. It's like the "witching hour".

I hope to have more fun posts soon. I have finished a few pieces of furniture. Finally! These are pieces that have been sitting for months in my garage waiting to be done and they go in the new house.

Here's a quick peek at one of them...
A dining table (in my messy garage). You might be surprised at what I chose to do with it, I think.

I share more often on Instagram lately so if you would like to follow along there HERE is the link.

OK! I am going to a birthday lunch for a friend today so I better run.

Have a super fun week and thanks for dropping in!

The house is coming right along Holly! I remember how excited we were when the power was turned on. Not that it is any consolation but I was thinking about you and praying for you on Sunday. I know it was a hard day for you. Hugs!

It's going to be a wonderful house! If it were perfect, you wouldn't have the fun of correcting the mistakes, right? Hoping the furniture tones down the pink in the walls for you.

The house looks beautiful.
I don't know if you have ever tried this, but my new obsession for painting furniture is Fusion mineral paint. Oh my gosh that stuff is amazing! No sanding or stripping. No paint fumes. It comes in some beautiful colors too. Check it out !

Hugs to you. I know how hard Sunday had to be for you. Some years I am okay and some I am a mess. Your house looks fantastic. I know you are ready to be in and making it a home. Thanks so much for linking to Keep In Touch.

The house is looking so great Holly. I agree with you on light fixtures they need to have easy access to change a light bulb. I get your thinking on that!!!! I cannot wait to see the table you picked out. Hurry up and get moved in there so we can see you unleash your great decor style. I am so excited for you.
xoxo

I am so sorry for your heart. Mother's Day is bittersweet for me since I lost a baby girl a few years ago. One book that helped was Heaven by Randy Alcorn.

One of the best advice I was given was "lean into the grief." It helped me to grieve and start healing.

Love your blog...have for a long time!

Blessings! Karen
