Couple of new things

I told you all that I had ordered a chandelier for my diningroom we

just redid..well it finally came in. Also I got a new mirror for above my mantel

and a couple of new plates too. Chris the kitty got into trouble by trying to

pull down the chandelier while my hubby was trying to wire it. He got yelled

at and this is where I found him hiding.

I love chandeliers too! I noticed you have Garden Spells on your Shelfari. I just finished it! Reminded me of the movie Practical Magic...if it has herbs and plants in it, it has to be good!

Hi Joy, So nice to meet you and I so enjoyed my visit to your blog too. Your home is beautiful and the mirror and chandelier are perfect. I have the same chairs and painted them black for my Tuscan kitchen. Your sweet kitty is adorable.
Hope to see you again soon.
Blessings, Celestina

We have 2 things in common Joy. I have the same dining room set (even the same lace tablecloth). And one of my dogs likes the laundry basket although she doesn't hide there, she sleeps there. I always have to keep some clothes in the bottom of it for her.

Your new chandelier is very pretty, and so is your room. What nice windows you have.

Cats do have a way of putting a smile on our faces. What characters they are. Yours has lovely eyes.

Best wishes!

Chris is a cutie....I think he was trying to help.

Your new mirror looks so nice and I just love your chandelier, it is just all the crystals. Hugs, Linda
