HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend!  It is Memorial Day in the USA!  And many thanks to the troops who continue to keep our country safe!!

I have been relaxing outside with the family this weekend.  The weather has gone from freezing and raining to hotter than August!!  Very wacky weather.

Mr. and I went to the home improvement store yesterday, to pick out a chandelier.  Not a huge crystal type, but a big light all the same.  This is what I picked out.
I LOVE it!!  It is like a big pretty birdcage!  I fell in love with the swirls and leaves, and the color.  I know everyone seems to be going white lately, but I love color.  And I guess I thought I would REALLY protest this trend by painting my kitchen/family room chocolate brown!  There are plenty of windows, so it isn't like a cave, and the couch, chairs, cabinets, appliances, are all white.  So, I guess I actually compromised!!

I am OF COURSE linking to Debbie's Newbie Party.  Click the link to check out how she spent her long weekend!!

Thanks for visiting, and have a fabulous and safe Memorial Day!!
