Our Home ... The Upper Deck!

Earlier this week I shared with you Callie's celebration .. and promised I would bring you to the Upper Deck for the rest of the Party!

Here we go ... now here are the House Rules:

1.  I am a re-user!  So you have probably seen some of these things before.
2.  I have been desperately wanting new lighting for the Deck.
3.  Callie chose the menu.  
Bar-b-que, mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes and Southern Style Green Beans.
4.  Once the party begins, I forgot that I am a blogger and put my camera down!

Remember the One Light Four Ways post that Linda did?  Well, this was my introduction to Rejuvenation.  Have you seen their catalog?  They specialize in Classic American Lighting and HouseParts.
Traditional. Current. Industrial. Substantial. Spot On. 
Yes.  Exactly what I need.

Can you spy one of my new lights?

Here's how it was looking before the party ...

A little PUNY ... wouldn't you say???

So I found these. Here.

The Carson Gooseneck.  QuickShip. Oh Yes.

Let me Bring you in a little closer to appreciate the REJUVENATION of my Deck Lighting!!

It's really the little things that can transform a space.  Indoors or Out.  

I ordered two lights to go over the wicker sofa here as well.  But, I have to say, they were just to large in this space.  I am going to send them back and see how I might be able to Custom Design two to go here.  I will keep you posted on my findings.  I have a feeling we are all going to be pleased!!

Late night S'mores for all.

Inside and Out!

  17. By just looking at the pictures, I knew the party was a success. You have nice place; delicious-looking food and I'm sure it taste better than it looks; and most importantly, you've been surrounded with people you love. I like your light fixture, by the way; it's a nice touch on your deck. Your home has a homey appeal, and it's great to see that even your light fixture looks too modern it still complement on the space. – Allison Shallenberger @

  18. Just love your huge outdoor space. You did a great job! Oh, and I 'stole' your S'mores idea...ok? I just have to do this next time we cookout and have people over. Enjoy your day!
