This Little Light of Mine

Sometimes, you chance upon things so beautfiul you can't resist.
I underestimated the power of two little lights.
I worried they were two expensive and would blow my budget.
They stuck in my head in their beautiful imperfection.
Visible welds
Not quite alike
Different Sizes
Not Wired
Composed of fabulous found antique parts
Thank you little lights for coming into my life and capturning my heart.

The lights which hang above my kitchen island are the final project my Daddy and I worked on together last July.
His 85 year old hands shook as we rewired and reworked them.
They inspired the mood for my whole lakehouse
And make me smile every time I see them.

A home is the cumulation of a thousand memories and a thousand choices.
Make sure yours are truly you.
All one thousand and one you's that live inside. Give voice to:
 the girly you, the modern you. the frou frou you, the rustic you. If you play and choose things you love it will be a beautiful expression of who you are.

My latest inspiration from these lights
