Hey blog you are getting a workout here...

I just made the best joanie balonie...full of macaroni beef casserole dish evar.  I don't know how I did it, but I hope I can figure it out again. 

I had an epiphany today.  I now know how I am going to decorate the rest of my house. Those lamps in the living room  were the best thing that ever happened to me.  I haven't put a decent pic of them up here yet but have been struggling....with a contemporary style .. and it just doesn't work here...even with the high ceilings.  I have decided it needs understated eloquence...I think I just made that  style up....but that is where I am going.  I don't know how I didn't see it before.  All the beautiful light fixtures seem to beg for it.  But I guess I was so used to the old house which was very modern  but didn't have any charm at all.  I can't believe when I saw those lamps in the store...and just had a feeling that this might be the way to go...and when I got home and put them on the tables and saw how they changed the house.  Now I know what to do with the windows coverings in my dining room....this has changed everything.  My house will now be charming.  I love that word. 

I am on my way my friends... I know what I got to do .... and make it happen.

I've been playing catchup here on your blog, Joan. For some reason, my reader wasn't working for a while.

It sounds like you've really got it going on now with the house. I love lamps also, and have found myself working around them.

Hope you have a wonderful day, and stay warm. :)
