Cold Weather Creeping In

As the weather has been terribly rainy and cold the last while in our neck of the woods, Tilley has been nestled snug in the garage and we have not done any more camping.  At the same time, we have been incredibly busy on the homefront and our energies have gone elsewhere.

Of course that's not to say we haven't been thinking about her, it just means we will be doing a little less for the next while as life settles into back to school and some of our favourite autumn and winter holidays.  We plan to get back to work on Tilley in the winter.  We still have a lot we want to do with Tilley we fix the old refrigerator, get a new refrigerator, or simply add more storage in it's place, how to paint the exterior, how to paint the gas tank (after we buy a new one), and very important - new wiring and battery. 

Wiring is very important because we want to install some fabulous lighting.  Here are some options we have been investigating - something like this
Or this
But our favourite is this...
...and lucky for us it is for sale just down the road from our home at Arevco Lighting.  We have bought from them before and their light fixtures are all beautiful, well made pieces. Now the question is do we get it in "polished brass" like above or in "dark antique" like below????
We'll be sure to let you know as soon as we decide.
