I do love all the seasons, and when it is fall, that is my favorite season, and when it first snows, well, winter is my favorite, of course. You get the picture.
I do love Maine, I will always live here, but the winters are a bit long. As soon as summer hits we pretty much live outside.
However, since spring has not sprung here yet, why not get some more inside things done?
This week I finally found two chandeliers for the living room. I have been looking for these for almost a year now. I had so much trouble because I wanted something petite. Frank is 6' 2", and fought me on this for a long time. I guess banging your head on a chandelier every time you walk under it is annoying or something. Ahem.
Every time I found one I loved, it was just too long, so when I found 14" chandeliers I was elated.
They were silver, so I primed them, and painted them ivory. It is really easy to do this if you remove all the crystals etc. and just go for it outside with the spray paint. If you already have one hanging and you don't want to take it down, you can just take a small brush and do it that way too.
So for now I will enjoy the new lighting, and covered television, while dreaming of planting, digging, picking berries, and sunflowers. I can't wait to read the kids bedtime stories with the humming of the fan in the background. I love the sound of bare feet on the deck, and all that this new season will bring.
Yes, spring is my favorite time of year.
