What I love most about my Kindle - I don't have to drive to the bookstore, or wait for a clerk to order my book. I can download a sample of a book before I purchase it and I can download magazines. Sure, it has been an adjustment, but curling up with my Kindle has been the best experience ever.

A few months ago, I purchased beautiful drapes from JC Penny's Custom Draperies. I absolutely fell in love with the Bird Cage Curtain Rods. Now, the Curtain Rods literally cost more than the draperies. That says alot since the draperies are far from standard length. The drapes are 22ft in length!! I have very high ceilngs. Of course, I saw a Bird-Cage Lamp base at JC Penny's that I wanted but thought that 80.00 for a lamp base was a bit expensive, considering that in a couple of years or months I could possible change my mind - again. Well, I was right. I found the exact same item at Walmart (of all places) for 19.00!!! OMG! What a find. Check out the photos.

It was nice to come home after work and sit out on the patio and have a martini. I have been dreaming about doing this for a year! The weather is perfect right now for dinner and drinks on the paito. I am looking forward to inviting friends over for afternoon drinks or maybe even a Spring brunch.
What I really enjoy the most about my new purchase is that I can enjoy it from the indoors as well. The effect that I was going for - when guest walk into the great room, the fountain and the paito furniture entice guest to go outside. The other plus is that when the weather is not so nice, I still have a beautiful view from the great room. I love this!
