New Pendant Lights In My Kitchen

Hubby and I were in Lowes a few weeks before Christmas
and we happened to see these pendant lights.
They're Roth + Allen and only $48 each ~ so affordable!



I mentioned to him (wink, wink) that they would look nice in our kitchen
so he surprised me with them for Christmas.


I had a small panic attack wondering what if I didn't like
 them after he put them up?
Would I be able to ask him to take them back down?


Luckily, all is well . . . I love them!


I think they add bunches of cottage charm and character.

Do you like them?

And . . . what do you do if your spouse or loved one gets you
something you don't like?

Do you tell them?

  6. I love these! Big bang for your bucks! I love when hubby picks up on the winks!!

    I always tell my family what I might like for a gift in general, I can't see them wasting their money on something I don't like or won't use. But I do love surprises!

    XO,

  10. So happy for you JoAnne to receive those gorgeous lights for a gift. They are awesome and if you don't like em I'll sure take em. They're very snazzy. Nothing like something snazzy for our home to make us feel better.
    My hubs didn't get me new lights but he did get up today to clean the light over the sink. It's needed it for awhile. I've learned to just kinda mention something then let it go, when he's ready he'll do it for me (if I can wait long enuf). We've been married 44 yrs. now so guess we've got each other trained pretty well huh?
    The lights look wonderful in your gorgeous kitchen. I'd be happy to get my cupboards painted one of these years. Happy 2013

  12. Love these lights...I usually like all the Roth+Allen things at Lowes! Looks perfect in your kitchen!

  13. I absolutely love your new lights! You couldn't have picked out any others that would be any better. They pick up the stainless steel of your appliances too and look great against the white. That was so nice of your husband to surprise you like that! Thank goodness you loved them!!

  14. Your new lights look just great in your kitchen. They pick up all the shiny and silver in the room.

  21. I really like them in your kitchen and think they look perfect for the cottage vintage look! My husband usually knows what I like. If either of us doesn't like something we're pretty honest and don't get offended.

  25. Your wink wink definitely is very effective. And it makes sense. The pendant light looks vintage and very beautiful. And, you are right, it looks nice in your kitchen.

  26. I love it, Joanne! Those pendant lights make the whole area look sophisticated and rustic. And because it’s silver, it helps distribute the light evenly. So, you’re lucky to have it. Cheers!

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.





But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.





And a decorated mantel.





A Christmas tree, of course.



Pretty packages.






And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.







Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!
JoAnne

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
