~Breakfast Room Light~

The farmhouse table and benches are finished and will be ready for pick up, Monday.  We are excited to see how they look at the condo.

While we were awaiting the table and another piece of furniture, we made a small change in the breakfast room, here at home.

I have looked, awhile, for a bar type light fixture, for above the big table, in the breakfast room.  I found several, but they were too heavy and ornate for the look I wanted.

Last Wednesday, I was browsing JC Penney Wednesday Deals, when I found exactly what I had in mind.

The regular cost was around $150.00.  The price was marked down to $60.00.  There was a code for reduced shipping costs.  I ordered the light Wednesday. It arrived Friday afternoon.

I recommend looking at JCP Clearance and Wednesday Deals.  I’ve found several bargains.

If all goes according to plan, I will post photos of the new table and benches, Tuesday or Wednesday.

Don't you just love JCPenney? I get their emails, and buy a lot of things for my home from them. You get some fantastic deals for sure. And your light is certainly one of them! Beautiful! I am so loving your new look. So cozy.

Pat- I love this post. Your breakfast room is so wonderfully cozy and relaxed. I just love your taste. I also enjoyed reading one of your posts from 07' entitled, Mr. Blandings builds his dream home". Pat I love that movie as well and I do the same thing! I love to look at the set decor for inspiration! I recently purchased the Father Knows Best season 1 series on DVD. I love that time. I also have two recent posts of my own of our local antiquity and I have you to thank for the inspiration with your recent posts themed for the opening of your local fair. Love your blog! As always, Kris

Love your white duckie on the table. AND, also love a bargain when it comes to lighting as most of it is soooo over-priced.
