Open House, more light fixtures and someone was 3 months old on Sunday!

Despite mine and dh's reservations, the open house on Sunday was a success as Sarah said there were seven different families over.  All were positive, but none were able to make a firm offer, as all/some had properties to sell.  Sarah was pleased though so that was good. In a city property that would be normal, but in a country property that is unusual to have so many people at an open house.

We had to go out for the two hours, so I dragged dh to a couple of stores including Rafters Living Lighting Store to look at light fixtures.  As although the builder does put in light fixtures, I never like them!!  All the light photos below are to go over the dining room table.

This one was lovely in "real life," the photo doesn't do it justice.  This one was $740.......did I mention I have expensive tastes...LOL This light fixture was from this company.
 We loved this one and it was cheaper at $640.  
 Here is a close up of the light and here is the web site for the firm.
 Liked this one as well, but forgot to get the company information.
 Then here is Miss Nora at three months old.  The headband was soon off as it turns out she neither likes headbands nor shoes on her feet!!
Don't you just want to pinch those cheeks of hers!!  Just a head's up her 4 month photo will have a St. Patrick's Day theme I am told!!

Finally, if you enjoy looking at figures/statistics/graphs, here is a link for the numbers for people looking at our house photos online:

I thought the light you showed us the other day was for the dining room??

Love the light fixtures -- we looked at some similar ones when we replaced builder's fixitures. Love that baby although it does seem like she is again at an alarmingly rapid rate! She is beautiful and yes, I would like to pinch those cheeks. My granddaughter will only wear headbands with a bow on them -- no ponytails or pig tails or hair clips. She isn't fond of shoes either -- guess she got that from me!

Will you be kind enough to give us a house tour before you leave (or have I missed that? apologies if I have!).

Those light fixtures are fab, I rarely look at what I would describe as "expensive` items but if I was going to be in a house for a long time I'd want it as nice as possible.

I'd just love to cuddle Nora and pinch her cheeks and pound her bottom! (Does anyone besides me like to pat their bottoms...I call it pounding but don't mean it for real.)
