Lighting our way into the new year

So, it seems I've become a bit of a Home Depot junky. Dave & I rambunctiously spent many, many bucks at the big, bad box store yesterday while redeeming gift certificates we received from siblings this Christmas (thank you guys!). I'm delighted with our purchases. We were short of a few light fixtures (all of our others are refurbished antique fixtures) including one for our dining room...and voila!

We also decided to install fans to push the heat down from our vaulted ceilings. We've been struggling for many months to find one we liked that would also suit our light-coloured, rustic timber frame (My gawd, there are so many *ugly* ones. Hello people! Where are all the good designers in this field?).

For once, we were actually together in a hardware store at the same time, enabling us to [finally] make a decision to buy some bronzed fans with lights like this chandelier below (can't find an image of the fan itself):

We also found our bathroom vanity fixture - with a cast iron look that will blend in with all of our iron accessories [again no photo yet].

We're off today to do a little mudding at the house before we drop by to visit friends in celebration of the new year.

Here's to a safe, fun and happy New Year! I've resolved not to make any major resolutions!
