Bigger than yours?
Yup. But only slightly.
Now what does that remind me of? I vote that they stay..a giggle a day...
Spoken like a real man.
It's all about perception.
hahaaaaa! Keep 'em. They're fabulous.
That's funny! What's also funny is that we just had a "bonus" room finished--the contractor said he had some light fixtures we could have, so we said (sight-unseen), "sure, put them in." Guess what--same as what you have there. Eberle & I had a good laugh & decided we could live with them.
THAT is hilarious!
Oh..I see!LOL :D
Isn't the guilelessness of men precious?!
Oh, I don't think it's guileless in this case!
I have the same fixtures, in green. I don't know why it never hit me in the store when I saw them in the boxes. Now every so often, usually when I'm low on milk, they scare me. Otherwise I still like the shape and the color and ummmmmm the cream colored ceiling around them. Oh geez, I really do need to replace these!
thanks for keeping us abreast of the lighting situation at the manor willow! steven
Hmmmm... Who bought 'em in the first place?
hahaha!Almost like the finding faces in places fixation... I wonder if there's a blog...
Holy cantaloupes, Batman.
watts with the lights, i don't get it...they're a nice pair.
Willow, is it cold in that room?Peace - Rene
Yes they do. Need to go, I mean.
What you need is a couple of the old Betsy Wetsy nursing dolls and a little super glue . . .
ha. thats hillarious. the post and the comments...lol. love the new header...i so have header envy...
Ha! I had the same thought about some in a house we lived in ... but didn't dare voice it ... "Is it just me?"
Good one Willow! Or should I say two.
Steven, you made me laugh out loud. Really loud.
Vicki, I actually do still have my Betsy Wetsy doll. The look would add to the quirkiness of the manor, I'd have to say.
This is so funny.. I have a pair just like these in my laundry room.
OMG, they're hilarious! A good talking point, er....points.
Too cute! WT has some nice think hair!
Upon similar installation in my previous home, I couldn't help but laugh...as have you. As always - a great header.
LOL...I am sure! fantastic post! Thank you!
Just bought new light fitting for the bathroom. 24 hours later and I would have known what to look for
Why do they remind of UFOs? And can you keep us updated? Will he notice when they're gone? Because, I've got a wager on you, girl, and I know they'll be gone by the end of this week :-)!Greetings from London.
Did you get them at Victoria's Secret? ;-)
Hi WillowFreud would enjoy this...Happy days
I have one of these in my kitchen!Men are always hesitent to change and always of the mentality;"if it ain't broke, don't fix it"!
Nanatrish, I've mentioned WT's fabulous hair before. It's the best ever. Wish I had been born with his lovely locks. Fortunately, my daughter inherited them.
I love your chess based observation, oh yeah.The light fixtures are cool. Why doesn't the hubby like them?
Hilarious joke!Master-stroke!Your award is on my blog:)
Well, I'm glad you got that off your chest, Willow. Im sure they make WT's face light up...
Reya, actually, WT loves them (for obvious reasons) and it's me that doesn't like them.
Hello Willow,A friend had similar lights on THE WALL of his apartment (not of his choosing!) Always a good talking point though!
To WT the fixtures were fine – The peaks altogether sublime.Willow said, “Not a chance,Please, dear, avert your glance!”They were replaced in the wee nick of time!
Look on the bright side--you won't have to dust it for the rest of your life!
You could take an eye out with one of those things! Thanks for the giggles Willow.Cheers!
Suza you are the Queen of Rhyme! That is just too cute, dear friend! ~xo
The last thing I was expecting at this moment was to be able to have a good laugh. Thank you so very much.If you permit me, are you sure it is a good idea to change them?You know how the flying butterfly can make a difference on the other side of the world? You never know by which subtleties the unconscious is happily in equilibrium...:)
He must like them even better illuminated! I just love boys and it's so nice to be naughty!
Ah men ...
They look a bit like the ones a friend got. They were very expensive, but seem to light up her life.
GroanWe had one of these in that horrible verdigris that was so popular about 15 years ago. Never had a matching set though. You should get some stalagmite of a lamp coming from the other direction and see what he says.
I am so far out of tune with the times I would have guessed they were modern and up to date.
Well at least they don't appear to need support.
You'll be OK so long as he doesn't insist on putting tassels on them.
Too funny! May I ask who picked them in the first place?
My aunt and uncle had an older, pre-Mission style home. They had the orignal version of that style of light. The one in the dining room was named "Tilly."
I love these little snippets of convo you have started offering every now and then lately. Very fun. I don't know what is more enjoyable here. Perhaps it's the use of "we"! Ha. But, I was just gogin to say something when I read your comment:"I've mentioned WT's fabulous hair before. It's the best ever. Wish I had been born with his lovely locks."--Yes, I noticed that too. "Best" though? Hmmm...looks in my mirror... hahaha. No, he really does have great hair and I bet he doesn;t even care about it. Oh well.
BTW, that's an exceptionally tidy fridge door. a lot like mine. I don;t like it cluttered.
Titillating blog you've posted today Willow! So, are you planning to remove the lights completely or install implants? I'm going to have one more run through the comments, so I can chuckle some more. Too funny!!!Do you pay ellen abbott? =D
Mmm, you got that right, he doesn't even care about his hair. SO unfair.
Ronda, Tilly, eh? That's priceless. I guess if we have to keep them, we can at least give them names.
Shhhh! Linda, you're not supposed to know about Ellen and the $$$!!
So he's a breast man?
I'll be happy to take them off your hands Willow. You know, in the interests of recycling and everything.
Nice rack!Did I say that. No I did not.Oh, yes I did!
hahahahahaha! I get it… That is hilarious!
LOL! Oh! I just can’t stop laughing.
but of course! tee hee thanks for the giggle
I nearly asked if it's cold in that room, but saw that another like mind had thrown that one out there. Love your blog and the fact that you are a fellow-Ohioan. In fact, finding your blog made my day. It's delightful!
Thank you, Mahala. Ohio bloggers are always especially appreciated at the manor. Hope to see you again soon.
If you do dump them, willow, I'll find a home for them...
Willow, you and WT just "light up" my life. Some of your best posts are OVERHEARD AT THE MANOR. And....the Colonel & I still howl every time we think of WT's knock on the bathroom door at the rural service station!I have laughed all the way through 79 comments!! Steven, a class act, is he not?
