Ok, so the story goes like this..... About a year ago we bought a gorgeous big dome light for our front room. Loved it as soon as i saw it, had to have it kinda know the one.
Anyroad.... someone who shall remain nameless sat the light on the lounge in his office (you guessing who that someone is now......) well we have 5 of them wanted to aww check out the new light....there was a computer monitor on the floor beside the jumped, light slipped.....SMASH was all i heard. Then all the neighbours heard was my high pitched shriek followed by a fair amount of cussing (yes yes i cussed big time, cmon you would have too).
So...we order a new dome...wrong one is ordered, it goes back, we order another, the right one this time....lalalala,6 months goes by and gee that light is still not up yet!
To the rescue comes Corey, my niece Beckas boyfriend. 2 weeks ago the light FINALLY went up.
Picture me HAPPY DANCING like a complete tool all over the place.
Here's my beautiful light...oh how i love it.

Well...i did love it. I'm starting to think i just wasn't meant to have this light.
Once it was up, Corey and Shane decided it needed tightening on the Corey starts to turn the bottom piece...that's when i heard it...CRACK...and Shane yelled STOP and i just stood there in total disbelief.....(then i cussed some more).
You know when something happens and you just think WHERES THE HIDDEN CAMERA? AM I BEIN PUNK'D?? Because this just CANT BE HAPPENING !!!!

But it did. Look and see.

Are you sitting there cussing with me?
Every time i walk into the front room i wanna cry. I know we are going to have to remove the dome and order another one because every time the light goes on, the crack gets worse.
So you see now why it's my nightmare? LOL. I gotta laugh or I'll scream.

*** Ok so next week i am DEFINITELY having a GIVEAWAY of the PINK kind. make sure you pop back and spread the word too !

Have a gorgeous and fantastic weekend! I'm off to Rick Rutherford's shop tomorrow to talk with him about my Christmas line.

Love Shann xxoo

I truly understand your frustration, but just go ahead and order a new dome and be done with it, sweetpea. Then all the frustrations will be gone and you'll have a fantastic light! I love loooove, LOVE it by the way, chick! I'd be thrilled to have such a light. Just beautiful.

Hope you are having fun up at Rick's store.

Better to laugh about it than go nuts. Just order another and things will be good again. Take care Carol

Oh Poo Shannon! That is just sad! I know how you feel, I have a six month old puppy who takes and sees if he can get his teeth on anything pretty I make or have! Hang in there! Suzie

It just wasnt meant to be, it looks so gorgeous though!! Will you order another dome ( and do it up yourself )..?

OH Dear!!!!
I hate to say it Shannon but I had a little giggle when reading this post!!!! I was thinking 'NO! this can't be happening'. I would have been upset too. It still looks nice with the crack. It looks fragile, so be extra careful with the next one.
