Hinges and Such...

Even the hinges, knobs, and locks take work in this house!  We have been enormously blessed with some pieces of history that deserve to be put back up on display.  As Jeff always says, "We are building a brand new 100+ year old house."  Between these beautiful salvaged gifts and the pieces and oddities that Jeff and I have been buying and saving over the last 20 years, this house will definitely have a few stories to tell.

Christmas Chandelier

Months ago, I was out trying to look for lights for the house and I fell in love with a chandelier that I knew wasn’t meant to be.  I looked around to see if I could find it used or “damaged”, but finally gave up and made do with other ideas that were nice, pretty possibilities... we don’t always get what we want!  Well, Jeff surprised me this morning with the one that I loved so much!  I can’t believe I’ll be in this house by next Christmas... and this will be hanging over my dining room table.
