Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

This is our stairwell light fixture.
Rudy and I fell in love with it the moment we saw it hanging in the store.
We were concerned it might be a little large for our home,
and so the store-owner graciously brought it and hung it one evening so we could decide
on the proportions in situ.

All he had to do was turn it on and we were sold.
We get to enjoy this amazing light show, every night,
right in our very own home.

This is my contribution to Razmataz's

    I loved the way those little rabbit prints and the stain from the wet maple leaves softened the concrete. Bet the boys who laid the sidewalk weren't as amused though.
