Ok, ladies and gentlemen (?), I had fun reading your "step away from the apple, lady!" comments and you'll be well pleased to see that the apple remains intact. I did not take a single bite. Actually I do love it as it is and when I do get tired of it I will pass it on to someone else who loves the wood no matter what. I will find thee a nice home Ms Apple. After I'm done with you. Promise.
So on to the wall candle holders. They are now white and hang on either side of the dining area window. We haven't had tall candles for a while because of Miss Mini and Master Bonus so the fact that these keep the candles out of the way of them is great. Oh, before I get comments on tails wagging at candle height I just want to point out that we are super careful to snuff all candles when we leave the area and make sure Mini and Bonus don't jump up where the candles are. Three sets of eyes are keeping close watch!
Although I did contemplate painting the candlesticks in a bright color I again went for white. I know, I'm such a bore. I added another couple which were earlier thrift shop finds and now all six are on the mantelpiece. Again one of the few areas our feline friends stay off.
Did you notice today is Friday?! Yay! After this weekend I plan to add a page to the blog with before and afters of our house. Inside and out. It's as much for myself as for you guys. I know you love before and afters and so do I. I have all these photos and I'll try to compile them room by room and then pat myself and Martin on the back for all the changes we've made since we moved in eleven years ago. I think there will actually be some in-betweens too as things have evolved over the years. Stay tuned, hopefully it's ready by next week.
