    My newest UFO....not your ordinary UFO...

    I do not claim to be normal, and my interests are many... I told my husband I would like a light over my ironing board different than the reading light I had been aiming at it. He decided a hanging light would work best for what I wanted. We went looking and here is what I ended up with, my choice, not his. He thinks I am a bit crazy...

    If you look carefully at the poster behind my ironing board, it has a UFO in it. AND my new light looks like a UFO too!! How cool is that?

    My husband is multi-talented, an electrician among many other things, and he is a perfectionist. He wanted to fix me up with a really fancy lighting arrangement, and he is a bit disappointed by this "industrial look." But I think another UFO fits right in. (as do my cats

    Check out the picture. You will think it is cool too. Another UFO in my quilting room...."purrfect"!

    That's cool. I have a old swing arm attached to a shelf.

    I like your UFO.

    I've got pics of red rocks that look like Mars

    I love it! I am a big fan of the "industrial look"! And I bet it gives you all the light you need!

    Now that really is neat! I suspect you may even know what tv show the poster is from. (X Files...just in case...)

    From one UFO to another - great play on the words "I want to believe" (I can finish my UFO"S!)

    Well, it is probably because being an electrician isn't his profession. He is really a college professor, but my guy can do anything. Right now he is repairing the water pump on our old pick-up and this summer he built an office in our workshop, doing all of it... carpentry,walls, ceiling, wall board, electricity, everything.

    He doesn't really do "honey do's" well, but I approached this just right. You know....I said there was no hurry, and this was what I was thinking....would it work, and all that. Next day I had my UPF. Course, I have been married to him for 45 years, and that is long enough to know what works and what doesn't.

    I love it. Good idea. Maybe that is just the light I need for above my cutting table.

    I have two like like yours in my little winery. They are green, so it looks like a warehouse celler. The amount of light is really fantastic.

    Not being normal can be a good thing. The greatest creative geniuses were not considered normal. You're in good company.
