A Winning Thank You

I would like to thank Kathleen of Charm Bracelet Diva for hosting the giveaway on her blog.

I was the winner of the $50.00 gift certificate from Parrot Uncle Lighting .

I have placed my order with Parrot Uncle and these are the pendants I chose. I also ordered the Edison bulbs to go with them.  My order will soon be on it's way.

I can't wait to contact my electrician about installing them. Don't think there's any chance they will get installed before Christmas, but I do have my fingers crossed.

My galley kitchen and dinning area was updated about 16 years ago and at that time I had wonderfully illuminating pot lights installed. It went from moderately lighted to extremely well lit. Out of the six pot lights installed, four are on a three-way switch’s located at each end of the kitchen. The two above the sink are on a single switch just to the right of the sink and  I rarely use them.

Efficient  & Functional...but just no personality!

I can already visualize those adorable little pendants hanging here! 

I've used a small lamp with a low wattage bulb for years on top of my refrigerator. It provides enough light for me to poke about in the kitchen without it looking like high noon in the middle of the night.

I’m hoping those charming new pendants with the Edison bulbs will give off a warmer looking light and more of a country feel (which I obliterated in the re-model) with their little wire cages that look like flowers.  Something pretty, not so utilitarian!

I’ve often looked at pendant lights for this area and WISHED I’d  had  some installed when I was re-modeling.  Until recently  I had no idea you could get an adapter kit to convert pot lights over to pendants.  It’s like a wish come true!!! 

Stay tuned for the reveal...coming as soon as I can get my electrician here!
Thank you for popping in~~~
Happy Hunting & Gathering!!!
