Another Small Step

We just replaced the Hall light with this magnificent crystal piece. While we were looking at the sparkle and light breaking through the facets of the crystals, we were wondering why did we live with the "classically modern, faux art glass, hand painted cobblestone finish" monstrosity that was hanging from the ceiling for the last year. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't a bad chandelier, but it was so inappropriate for this House, that it was such an eyesore for us. How much of an eyesore, we didn't know until now. Kids love looking at it, like anything shiny, I guess, and are still talking about the electrician bringing this magical thing into their lives.


  1. Thanks - we got it from the lighting place on Bloomfield Avenue. Artistic Lighting I believe is the name.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

Our lovely porch restoration has won an award from the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission for Brick and Mortar Preservation project in the residential category.

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
