what you need is a chan-da-leeah!

I don't know why I've been talking about Nashville so much this week. Must be something a brewin with out little friend Auntie Swing. Don't you dare send us a picture of a pregnancy pee stick young lady...

When I was there visiting in September, I found this light at a store in Franklin and thought it was so fun. It's rainbow colored and plastic and I loved it. I took a picture of it with my phone and sent it to Nipper. He replied that he thought it looked messy. But then relented and said whatever.

We needed a new fixture for the top of the stairs. It's such a tiny space, and the fixture the house flipper put in was this giant rustic hacienda type deal. Awful. We painted the whole stairwell a deep dark orange color, and hung Frida Kahlo up there. I had been struggling to find just the right light.

Once again, I failed to take a before picture. But here are some shots Jack and I took of the new one last night. His friend Cleo gave him a kids digital camera a few days ago, and he's been happily snapping away at everything. I had him lay down with me on the landing under the light to see show him how we could take pictures from a different angle. My little Stieglitz...
