h e l l o M o n d a y !

h e l l o L o v e l i e s !

i hope all of you had a wonderful Mothers Day!

i cleaned house and cooked all day Saturday.

it actually felt great to have such a productive day.

last week i gave the chandy a little make over.

i removed the burlap, (it had been on for almost two years), cleaned it,  and took it farm to table.

i replaced the standard globe lights with pretty vintage looking

:: ici ::

 Edison candelabra bulbs from Restoration Hardware.

Mom, Dad, Chrislyn, Jason and the Grands came for dinner.

Chrislyn baked another amazing rendition of her Italian Cream Cake.
( this time she added raspberry, just for me. )

Jay sent local Farmers Market flowers via Chrislyn.

we had a wonderful evening.

i opened beautiful and thoughtful gifts and played with the "grands"!

Mothers Day was at home . . .  Mr D and me.

he spent the day installing a special light switch

and the festival lights with Edison bulbs that i found

at Costco awhile back. he cut and spliced!

a perfect custom fit!

so b e a u t i f u l.

happy Monday!
