I got a little bit done on the chandelier, mostly due to conflict between available time and snagging the wrong parts.

Last weekend I carefully set out the various bits of hardware that I'd decided to spray paint to match the canopy and such.  I let things dry for a couple of day--there didn't seem to be any hurry and I wasn't going to try to put anything up until I had a weekend again--but when I checked how things were looking I realized I'd very, very carefully painted the wrong eyehook.  I had bought a shorter one originally and then discovered that I needed a longer one to make everything work properly with the eyehook.  Naturally I'd managed to recolor the wrong one.  Sigh.

Fortunately this was an easy problem to correct, and the parts are doing what I hope is their final dry-in as I write this!

So once all the hardware is done I'll get all of the hardware assembled and installed up there, probably tomorrow (Saturday).  Once that is done, we'll be down to the fun part....hanging the chandelier itself!  Some challenges there I haven't quite figured out yet, but I'll work on it.  I very much want this to be right, as one might expect.

In other news we had a bit of a winter storm over the last weekend with 4.5" inches of global warming gracing the outdoors. Combined with some very low temperatures, the trees became these frosted, gorgeous sentinels lining the canyon....it was remarkable.  I was able to take a few pictures with my cell phone and thought folks might enjoy them.

I've also been slowly re-staining some of the old furniture I had inherited from Colleen's grandmother.  I have pretty much decided that the object of my attention at present is fine little cabinet/drawer thing that I simply don't have a need for, so once it's all stained I plan to donate it to the local ARC.  I think it'll be a good little dresser for a child.

I've given Colleen some measures for some of the more "odd-ball" windows around Tanglewood that I wasn't able to find any curtains in such odd-ball sizes.  I also given her an existing 64" curtain that she will be cutting up and turning into properly sized curtains for the odd-ball windows.  Looking forward to what she comes up with!

And that's about it since my last post.....there are some slight signs of spring here and there, so soon it will be summer again!

Great shot of the road heading up the canyon.
I liked this shot where you can see the road far in the distance.
A line of frozen trees with Black Mountain (one of many such in Colorado, as it happens) in the background.
