Dear Reader Diane sent an email that delighted me to the very core of my bones. I begged her to let me share it with you! 


"I loved your story of the *hideously beautiful boots*. I can SO identify.......LOL....sometimes you see something and you can't figure out a way to NOT get it. Doesn't matter if it is the most wildly impractical thing, that it won't ever be used/worn enough to justify it's price......

But when you ask yourself......*Can I live without it????*.....and you truthfully answer *No*.......well, it must be meant to be. 

So it is with my barn. After years of drooling over barns, I will finally be getting one. Nothing fancy, a 32 X 32' pole barn shed with a 12' lean to on one side for my 2 horses (and the evil goatie). It's as basic as I can make it, so when I am gone, someone else can use it for whatever they want. Sturdy, functional.......and a

Then I fell off my mind and spied THIS......and I knew, I just KNEW, it needed to be the main light in my little tack room/office.

Yes, it's about as impractical as you can get......I am sure it will be nothing more than a fancy spider condo........

But I simply couldn't NOT get it. I went into Sequin Queen mode, and happily handed over my credit card. The electrician is going to laugh his butt off when he installs it, but I don't care.

Even barns need bling.


Diane I.


. . . and because I can't afford the weathervane I REALLY want (I am NOT paying more for a weathervane than I did for my horses!!)
I went with a *barn guardian* instead.
His name is *Apex*."
 This is a woman after my own heart!  I love the way she thinks! And for those of you who missed her reference to my Hideously Beautiful Boots, here it is:  Hideously Beautiful

If it were not too far away, I'd come over and wire the lamp for laughs...a few knowing smiles, perhaps....but no laughs. The reason for the knowing smiles is that I have similar "issues"....except mine are probably a bit more wildly impractical. :-)

Love it. Talk about doing things on spure of moment. Have given a home to two 9 month boer goats. I can't walk properly at moment and they are fence climbers. Hope their butts get too heavy soon as there is no way I can get them back without help. So far so good LGD have accepted them and they are still in with 3 ancient scatty sheep and a ferral cashmere who marches to her own tune
