Vintage Wiring

Yesterday I was on the phone with my mother-in-law when Mr. Blessing jumped in front of me and breathlessly declared, "The electrician has to knock out the ceiling, ok?"

Hmmm... I'm not exactly sure what response he was looking for!
But after hours of having a very patient professional working on our "vintage" wiring, we have power again! The garage door opens, the bathroom light goes on and off when it's supposed to, and the circuit doesn't blow when we run the microwave and the dishwasher at the same time. And only a small portion of the ceiling is missing! However, since we've had a bit of a mess around here, I thought I'd show you something pretty from my mom's house...

She decorated her dinning room chairs with aprons for our Sunday dinner!
And Mr. Blessing gave me little gift today to make up for the mess.
Yep, it's a key to the messy house!
He got it at our little local hardware store but you can get your own here.
