School House Drop Lights

A good Monday to you, my friends.
Another weekend is past and I can't help but wonder where it went.
Our youngest, Marissa, is here visiting for three weeks and we have been on the go pretty much every day.
That's part of the reason why I have not been around here on my little blog.

I realized today, though, that I have not shown you my newest addition to the kitchen.
School house drop lights.

They match the main light in the kitchen.



I'm embarrassed to say that I was given these way back in May for Mother's Day.
Marissa was with us then for three weeks, just before she went to Lake Utik to work for the Summer.

That was when the Lilacs were in bloom and before I had found this darling little picture on Vancouver Island.

In fact that was before I showed you the embroidery on the tea-towel that my sweet little granddaughter embroidered for me.

Where has the Summer gone?  

I hope you have had a warm and wonderful Summer. 
I'm so grateful to be here in Manitoba where the Summers are hot and Autumn extends into November.
I'm really looking forward to Autumn.
Are you?

Have a fabulous day!

Hugs, Cindy

I'm very grateful for the Summer that was and still is.
I hope you feel that way too.

Your kitchen lamps all match beautifully.
I love the flower arrangements in your photos. Glad to know that you have been enjoying summer and looking forward to Fall.
Have a great week.

I love the new lights Cindy and that tea towel is so sweet! Have a great week!

Like the lights! Did you just have to switch out the glass or the whole thing? Very retro ... and I am old enough to remember them in school!

Your granddaughter's hand work is very nice! Enjoy the time with your daughter.


Love the new lights; your kitchen is so cozy, Cindy.

Your kitchen is very pretty and the new lights match so nicely. Love the little embroidered gift of your grand daughter.

Hi Cindy, it all looks rather lovely! Yes, actually I am looking forward to Autumn. We haven't had much of a summer in England at all this year. I'm looking forward to the rustle of autumn leaves underfoot and a change of scenery!
Have a lovely week. Sharon :)

Rhonda said...

the lights are beautiful and suit your home perfectly.

Carol said...

The lights are terrific, Cindy! Didn't think your kitchen could get better, but it did!
I, too, am still savoring summer, and will enjoy autumn when it arrives.

Love the whole look of the kitchen, and the ceiling is really special. I'm so jealous!!
I've nominated you for the "one lovely blog award" :) Cheers.

I love your new kitchen lights, Cindy! They give your pretty kitchen a wonderful glow.

Enjoy your daughter's visit!

I just found your lovely blog. I love your kitchen. I also was born in the US, to a Canadian mother and an American father. We moved to Canada in 69, I love Canada but I do have patriotic feelings toward the USA.

Hi Cindy--
I really like your lights. My kitchen is so dark. I've been thinking of adding lights in there. We have an eat in kitchen which is a pretty good size considering how small the house it...but since it only has one source of natural seems dark.
I'd like something like this that hangs...right now, we have ceiling fans.

The seasons seem to go by much quicker these days, huh?
...have a great week, Pat

I like your lights very much. We have pot lights in our kitchen and I'd much prefer drop lights.
Autumn is my favourite season too - and it is nice and long here on the coast.

Ana said...

Too fast! Time is just flying by too fast. But I am looking forward to the autumn and winter seasons, my favorite time of the year. In the mean time warmer weather is predicted for the next few days...Yikes! :-)

Much love,

Sheila said...

Your kitchen looks wonderful with the addition of the lights Cindy. i do hope that you have a very special time with your daughter while she's at home.

Brittany said...

You have such an awesome kitchen, and those school house lights are just perfect for it!! I always love your pics =)

Pamela Gordon said...

I love your new school house lights! They realy suit your kitchen's vintage theme. It's been a beautiful hot summer here too and it continues. I guess it will be a lovely fall too according to the weather prognosticators. :) I've been away a lot and now have a few days to myself to get caught up. Take care. Blessings, Pam

I adore schoolhouse lights. I have 2 sitting in my garage waiting to be installed in my upstairs hallway. Yours are just wonderful. Enjoy having your daughter around...and enjoy these last days of summer!

Hi Cindy,
I love your new school house lights! they look so perfect in your kitchen. You really do have a dream kitchen, you know I adore your white cabinets. One day I will convince Gary to let me paint our oak cabinets.Your puppy photo is so adorable. We are getting ready to leave the first week of Sept. to take my parents on a little vacation. It will be good to get away we have had so much sadness, Mom really needs to rest. Have a sweet day and sending you big hugs, Elizabeth

Hello Cindy
Thanks for visiting my blog, I'm always happy to meet up with another Canadian. The new drop lights are nice, well your whole kitchen is. I hope to visit more often.

Jo @ To a Pretty Life said...

Your lights are gorgeous! Did you just change the shades, or the whole fixtures?


Loving this vintage looking drop lights! Well, I'm glad you got them up, they enhance your beautiful kitchen much more! Thanks for your lovely visit, you always put a smile on my face dear Cindy. Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Cindy,

Love the lights...and you know I love your kitchen...I remember way back when as you were just starting the remodel and I am sure you have gotten so much enjoyment of this beautiful space and so fun to see all of the little touches that keep adding to the charm...even the dish towel your grand daughter made...wonderful details! seems you have had a busy and fun summer...somehow I think real life crept in to all of our summers and took time away from our blogs...I know it did mine...anyway always a pleasure to visit here and praying it will be a delightful autumn for us all. Best, Jermaine

Shannon @ Cozy Home Scenes said...

I too am looking forward to fall since it was way too hot to enjoy summer. I love your sweet dog picture and the lights make a wonderful addition to your farmhouse kitchen. You've done a wonderful job decorating this space, and I love seeing the new things you add to it.

Faye Henry said...

Hi Cindy.. Better late than never, eh?
I love love your lights and your ceiling..
Your little pic has an exact mate in my little shop.. smile..
I haven't been very good at reading blogs this summer .. I can hardly find time to post...
Oh well.. as you say..
Autumn is coming but my first love is Summer..
