in pursuit of pendants

Pendant lighting doesn't have to be ho-hum or look so utilitarian. 
Make all those plumbing fixtures, stone counter tops. and appliances sparkle 
with some shining jewels - artful and decorative pendants 
that add pizazz to kitchens, bars and other work spaces.

artist: jennifer mercede

 This painting by Jennifer Mercede immediately caught my eye 
the other day at Simpatico.
I love her whimsical designs + fun festive colors.

If you're in Chagrin Falls, check out Simpatico in person, 
It's a great shop full of unique furniture + accessories.
