Well, here it is just in time for all the big changes… In addition to starting the next chapter in my life, I am making my first of what I hope to be many posts to my new blog!
Archaic Notions is a forum for the perception-ally challenged. Things aren’t always as they appear and you can’t always judge a book by it’s cover. I look for things that had one purpose at one time, and turn them into something different or at least useful again. A cross between up-cycling, antiquing and junking. I will have guest bloggers. I will have stories about my new adventure. Moving away from the town in Northern Wisconsin that I’ve lived in for almost 21 years to a historic town outside of the twin cities. Our cast of characters will be me, my new roommate the ‘Ratical’ BF, the kids, the dogs….food, friends and fun.
I’m working on a Facebook page, a Twitter account, sponsors, blogging groups, auto feeds, Google placement, photos, etc! I hope to have everything hooked up within the next few weeks. AFTER the move, oh moncler outlet and the road trip/vacation, and then more moving. Seems like a huge undertaking but its a good thing that I am keeping my house so I can take my time. Merging two households I hope is more clarifying then it will be cumbersome.
Ok, back to business. Last weekend the Ratical BF and I took an antique double tree horse yoke added some vintage lighting fixtures with Edison bulbs I bought from Amazon and added Mason Jars…Who-la! We now have a new kitchen light fixture. (so happy I met a guy who has a special place in his heart for old things — including me!)
We do think that it isn’t quite bright enough for task lighting. You can see in the day photo that the sun lights bring in a lot of natural light. But its necessary to get something brighter. So we will either add a few more fixtures, or better yet make another one with something else old, rusty and crusty that we can find! Stay tuned!
