Cosmetic work

Our Tahiti Breeze fan is up and working!  This might be a good time to admit that I have a bit of a theme going (in my mind, at least) for our house.  The problem is, I don't like the idea of a theme because of how easily it can turn into kitschy knick-knacks and tchotchkes.  Perhaps what I should say is that I'm hoping to evoke a sense of tropical calm, without resorting to little palm tree statues.  To be honest, the fan itself is a little close for comfort in terms of a theme, but we found it on sale and I do like the way it looks.

And we made the blinds work!

Oh, I can pretty much guarantee you'll get kitschy gifts. I didn't even realize I had a theme in our house - I just have a few "African Artifacts" from Kenya etc., and then SOMEONE, who shall remain nameless, thought I should have a giant plastic giraffe statue to go along with my African theme. I assume its the first of many such gifts.
