Let there be light!

When I moved into the townhouse I loved everything about it...except the light fixture in the dining room. I'm assuming that the woman who picked everything out had a chandelier she planned on installing because I couldn't believe a person with such good taste would like such a horribly ugly light fixture.

It was so ugly I must have tried not to take photos of it. This is the best one I could find.

Now I have a fabulous light fixture. It looks great over my dining room table.

I'm very happy with the way it looks with the pendant lamps and the rest of my kitchen. (Just ignore the artwork that is leaning against the island. I'm hoping it will eventually decide to hand itself on the wall.)

Next week I get to take down the temporary blinds I hung and get the real blinds installed on my bedroom balcony door.

I've also been doing quite a bit of spinning. This is the wheel i got to bring home from class last week.

I'm hoping I'm making sock yarn.

This is merino wool from The Yarn Wench. Love the wool, and the colors are gorgeous.

I also went out and bought felt pads for the bottom of the kitty bunk bed because it gets moved around so much its starting to scratch my pretty hardwood floors. The upside down bunk bed is much more fun!

Sweet light fixture and much better than the old one. Your townhouse is so cute I can't wait to see it in person.

Also, could your cats get any cuter? I think not.

Love your condo. Noticed your umbrella swift attached to the kitchen counter too (now that's a knitter's house). Angela (from Spring Fling ((from Louisiana)) ).

Love the light fixture!!

I also love the Lendrum -- that is what I have.

And finally, I also have the same French black cat poster. :)

Like the new light! I think you should learn how to knit baby socks, and I can buy some from you with cool design. :) That'd be cute!
