Kitchen Redux ~

it all started with a suggestion:
"Peter, can you finally install our dishwasher that we've been storing for eight years?"
his reply:
"ya know, I could do that for you..."
so he did.
then the counters needed replaced,
and we never had lower cabinets, so a trip to Lowes we go ~
the new counter top is beautiful, the lower cabinets are oak & will
receive my handpainted treament to match the top glass cabinets...
I will show more pics of the progress, as soon as I can.
have any of you seen these new lightbulbs?
the are AWESOME!
for those of us that love an older, dimmer and early look to our lighting,
not necessarily colonial lighting, but 1800's lighting,
THESE are da bomb!
they are mulit-filament bulbs and are exact replica's of the same ones
that Thos. Edison invented.
...way cool!
blessings from the farm,

Oh....lucky you!! A dishwasher!! I won't even pick on you that it's 8 years old -since the dishwasher in our house is MUCH older (but I'm not tellin' my age that easily!!) ;o) Can't wait to see the fruits of your magic this time! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Hey Lori

Love the light bulbs. I tried to zoom in on the package to see the name of the mfg. Can you please advise who makes these bulbs.
