a days work! We are also switching out

personalized clock for the big wall

when it's all done!

OH MY GOSH, I can't imagine renting such a large contraption to change a light fixture. I have a new entry light sitting on our floor still in its box (from December). And all we have to do is get a ladder out from the garage!

You are busy busy busy! I love the new fixture and I am sure everything will look fabulous when you are done (done?, yeah, one thing leads to another!).

Cute dollie!

Happy Monday
