Ah, the mere 2 year plan!

Another tiny project that I'm excited hubbie and I got done over the holidays was to finally install an Italian Tole light fixture in my little studio. I picked it up at an antique store a couple of years ago with the plan to put it in the studio, but hubby said the ceiling tiles wouldn't support it. After seeing it on many a honey-do list, he enlisted my help to get it hooked up (maybe the fact that the light kept showing up in conspicuous spots like his desktop, his file cabinet, his bureau top helped spur him on. I dunno... whistling innocently).
Whatdya know? The ceiling tiles support it just fine and I have a pretty, little light to brighten up my creative space.
Not that I've spent much time in the studio the past couple of days because someone infected me with the crud. My nose is staging a mutiny against me. I hope to putter around in there (my studio, not my nose) a wee bit today because I'm feeling sorry for myself and there is no one around to pour me a Godiva chocolate martini (or three).
The ladies at Joli Paquet are taking their collective talents a step further by not only offering their tips, tutorials and kits at Christmas time, but will soon be adding to their blog with more loveliness for any time of year. Just click on their button to the right on my blog or check them out here: Joli Paquet. I'm excited!

I LOVE that light! How absolutely gorgeous! I would have put it anywhere and everywhere to get my hubby to put it up.

Take care! My nose is still against me.
