Our house is a work-in-progress. and it seems like things can’t really get done unless there is a hard deadline. So I told S, my friend and interior designer, that I wanted to have some things in place for JJ’s christening, one of them being new lighting in the kitchen (to replace the heinous builder spec lighting). I really love both the lanterns over the kitchen table:
and the new, large chandelier over the island:
I wanted both to be put up on Tuesday, before M and fam got into town, but the island chandy wasn’t ready, so that got put up on Friday, when everyone was around. And I guess it had an impact on Little E, our niece, as she drew this for me:
Isn’t it amazing?! I want to put it somewhere in the kitchen. She really is a great kid. I hope JJ grows up to be a lot like her!
Aren’t they adorable?! My mom was ready to take her home, she was so enamored with her. Hopefully they’ll get to see a lot of each other and become close friends.
