Light=Love

Via
No flowers for me yesterday. 

This is what I requested.
A new light for the foyer. It wasn't what I originally had in mind but the bargain bin at Home Depot convinced me otherwise.
I thought the style flowed well with the dining room light. You know, the other light I wanted to get rid of.
Notice anything different? Those metal leaves which were making the globes look like tulips have been removed. Amazing how fast those things snapped off.  I left enough leaves on other parts to tie in with the foyer light. 

Here's the foyer before.
Just felt a little dated to me.

We're getting closer to putting the for sale sign out on the lawn! 

And to the Doc's credit, he did buy me a huge heart box of chocolates. He even got up early this morning to go fill my car up with gas so I wouldn't have to. Yes, I'm spoiled and I love it.

Good Morning Tammy Sweetie...
Looks like you had a wonderful Valentine's Day and got just what your heart desired. I love that new look. It is beautiful hanging and the crystals will catch all that beautiful light that comes through your window behind. How very pretty and elegant it is.

Chocolates and a gas tank. How sweet is that. He's a keeper sweet girl. Have a gorgeous day. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
