Are 2 Light Fixtures Better than 1?

I love staring at Pinterest in the morning!

Today’s inspirational fun involves dining room light fixtures.

I noticed that people are hanging 2 lights over the table, instead of the usual 1.

Nobody loves a drum shade more than I do.

Nobody loves navy blue ticking stripe more than I do.

I wonder how a pair of these beauties would look, hanging over our pine farmhouse table!

Kay's house

Our table — the pine is from an old structure in Manchester, Englad.

Blue ticking drum shades are of the modern-meets-granny persuasion, don’t you think?

I like to describe my decor as such.

Speaking of which, here’s a stunning modern/granny/industrial dining room:

It’s all good, but I think I’m most smitten with that cabinet!

NO, I don’t have it, but I do have a close runner-up . . .

 . . . my 20’s-era postal sorter!

P is for postal sorter

A quarrel ensued when I told G.O. this was going in our house!

I think I paid $75 for this, way back in ’91 when I had my first retail shop . . .

. . .  Heart-in-Hand, in my then-hometown of Oregon, Illinois

(about 2 hours straight west of Chicago).

I stayed up til the wee hours, stenciling that sign!

But I digress.

What I am saying is: that postal sorter is definitely moving with us to the Dutch colonial.

Now all I have to do is decide whether it will be in our living or dining room.

Today my vote would go to the dining room.

Stay tuned!
