People, I am in love. Love! Ahh, l’amour!
So, I have a friend named Patti. I like Patti, especially her new haircut. But what I’m really loving about Patti right now is her house.
Oh, her house!
Patti is the president of the homeschool co-op that my family attends. Every month she hosts a Homeschool Co-op Planning Meeting in her home. Tonight, the meeting was in the house she just moved into this past month.
When I arrived, she said I could go on a self-guided tour of the home, so I did. But I made it barely 10 feet past the front door when I was confronted with this. I mean, look at this!
Now, that, my friends, is no mere chandelier. That is a capitalized-in-italics Chandelier.
Here’s a closeup:
No, I didn’t have to stand on the table for the shot, though I usually find myself climbing on tables and certainly lying in the dirt for many of my pictures. But this time, I used the swivel screen on my camera, so I could hold the camera above my head and still see what I was shooting.
You can’t get a chandelier like that anymore. That chandelier came with the house when it was first built. Patti said, “I’m not sure how to clean it. If it gets dirty we might just replace it.”
I’ll come and clean it for you if it means you keep that chandelier. I’d offer to take it off your hands, but my three chandeliers are placed in major walkways through my house. I’m afraid I’d lose too many tall guests in the depths of that chandelier, so it’ll have to stay at Patti’s.
After I managed to peel myself away from the chandelier, I wandered through the rest of the house. Here are the light fixtures in the bathroom, being reflected in the mirror. Lovely.
And this is the built in cupboard in the bathroom. If you’re plucky enough, I’m sure you can get to a new world in the back of this cupboard.
Do you remember when I posted recently about UNHs (Ugly New Homes) and asked, “Where is the crazy blue shag carpet in the spare room?” Well, Patti’s house doesn’t have crazy blue shag carpet. No. It has crazy orange shag carpet. Even better! See:
You’ll never guess where it is.
It’s in the bathroom.
But not on the floor. No. Look:
It’s on the walls! If you’re thinking, “Surely that shag carpet is not on the walls of the bathroom! Surely that’s some sort of photography trick,” let me be swift to reassure you that it most certainly is on the walls and most certainly is in the bathroom.
I managed to get these shots off super-fast before the meeting began. But I need to invite myself to her house so I can take more pictures.
And drool a bit more over that chandelier.
