I must be contrary. Rather than do spring cleaning, like a normal person, I do fall cleaning. It just seems to reason that things need to be just so before the long winter months ensue.
I recently gussied up our entry way, since it is in constant use in the winter, but noticed that one thing was lacking. Our entry way has no light. Of course, because we live in a shouse, I can't just hang a light from the ceiling or add a new sconce. Shouse living requires much creativity!
After noodling over the problem for a week or two (did I mention I was a little slow?) I came up with a working solution. I hung a coat rack that Sir Knight had fashioned out of used horse shoes over our coat area, dug up a dainty chandelier, put rose hip branches through a link in the chandelier chain and hung the branches between the horse shoes! I think that it turned out perfectly wonderful!
Notice - I soften all of my house photos so that you can't see all of the dirt on my walls. Just think, this is what it looked like back before we had electric lights!
