Enter the only man on earth capable of making those days not just bearable, but all together wonderful--my hubby! We have these beautiful wood beams over the nook in our kitchen and I had decided I wanted a whale to hang up there--we are living in the nation's whaling capital, right? Gotta have a whale! But to buy one in a gift shop was more than I wanted to spend--the 'cheaper' ones started around $70 and went well above $100...So--hubby buys a perfect piece of wood at Home Depot yesterday for fifty cents--CENTS! Draws his own outline of the whale and cut it out, sanded, painted, and viola--my perfect whale!
|It's exactly what I wanted and it looks great up on the beam!|
Then...a little frosting for my cake...He took a trip out to one of our favorite antique shops with his sister and nephew later in the afternoon and brought home this lamp I had fallen in love with last year--I can't believe it was still there:
|Isn't it cool? A perfect reading/work lamp--I love it!!|
