Food Bloggers Present Favorite Dishes on Enamelware for Thanksgiving
What is the most irritating thing about shopping this time of year? It’s not the lack of prime parking at the mall or even the pre-Black Friday crowds. No, it’s hearing Jingle Bells and Here Comes Santa Claus ringing through the air a good two months before Christmas. The start to the holiday season seems to start earlier each year, but we’re here to say, “Not so fast!” Don’t discount Thanksgiving! What could be better than a day filled with football, family, and, the star of the day, the food? And not a single present to wrap! ... Read More

Featured Customer | Porcelain Barn Pendants Grace Historic Florida Church
We love good before-and-after photos! They often show dramatic transformations, but can also visually demonstrate what a difference one single element, like good lighting, can make. Last week, we visited the Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church in nearby Christmas, Florida, where Clarence Canada, a trustee of the church gave us a tour of the historic building. “The first church was built in 1868, but a fire destroyed it,” Clarence told us as we entered the cozy sanctuary. “This building was erected around 1906-1908.” The sanctuary has been lit by different styles of fixtures over the years and, lucky for us, Clarence shared photos to offer a...

Featured Customer | Wall Sconce Lights Add Nautical Flair
When Ann-Marie decided to renovate the master bathroom in her Kennebunkport, Maine, home, she faced more than just a decor update. “The bathroom was so dated, but there was a huge bathtub that took over the entire room,” she says. “Filling that bathtub on the second floor in a building built in 1900 was a pretty scary thought!” The home was built on piers over the water and is an historic fixture in the town. When Ann-Marie started the renovation project, she wanted to stay true to the nautical roots of the home. The master bathroom had a ceiling light and fan but she wanted the vanity light to be a bit more stylish. ... Read More

Featured Customer | American Made Wall Lighting As Grand as the Tetons
When Gillian and her husband visited the Teton Valley of southeastern Idaho five years ago, they fell in love with the grandeur of the area. Although they had never done so much as a home improvement project, the couple purchased a two-and-a-half acre lot and began planning to build their forever home. “We broke ground in June 2017 and completed our guest house this past spring,” Gillian says. “We want to be in the Valley as much as we can for vacations until we make it our permanent home in five years.” ...

When Marjorie and her husband Michael began a guest bathroom renovation, they decided to buck the neighborhood trends and embrace their love of all things nautical. “We live on the south shore of Long Island, about five miles from the beach. Every single house looks exactly the same with vinyl siding, the same fencing, and the same windows,” Marjorie says. “Everything about our home renovation goes against the grain. We are definitely ‘that house’ on the block!” Their home features many farmhouse elements such as white board-and-batten siding but with black details and nautical accents throughout. ... Read More
