You see them in all of those old black and white movies. The beautiful women in the tailored black dress, white gloves, an enormous hat. They're leaving Macy's with an entourage of dark men in white suits carrying piles and piles of dress and hat boxes.
Today that was me. Except at Home Depot, Sherwin Williams, and Globe Lighting. I filled two truckloads with light fixtures, faucets, showerheads, towel racks, fixtures I could only dream of. Mine. All Mine. I had brief thoughts of sitting in the middle of all of the boxes and swimming in their bubble wrap among all of the aged bronze finishes and frosted glass.
Of course I forgot my camera. So you'll just have to wait for a peek at what I got.
