It’s true, in my opinion, that lighting is the jewelry in our homes.  You build or buy a home.  The finishing touches are usually the light fixtures that you choose.  They sort of set the tone.  Lamps are the same way.  They can change a room…just by moving them to a different table or book-case.  That being said, I will show you the other “goodie” that I found.

We have lived in our home for almost nine years.  It’s crazy the way that time flies!  It doesn’t seem all that long ago that we were whispering prayers over our basement being dug or our well being drilled.  Those are the stressful days.  You are just never sure how much either one will wind up costing.  Thankfully, (I mean that!) it wasn’t too  bad.  So…enough about that.  It’s time to switch out the shades on the lights above the island.  Are you ready?  Okay, here we go.  😉

Old shades.

The husband has his thinkin’/workin’ face on. Love that! 😉


Pretty little drum shades.

I love the coziness. 🙂

Have a happy Tuesday, Dirt Roaders!  Be brave…switch out those shades!
