Vintage Honeywell Tap-Light

The Retro Renovation blog shared an Etsy listing for a few new old-stock Honeywell Tap-Light switches.   I'm pretty sure that this is what we installed in my stairwell!  One switch that is listed has a clown face that is similar to the one on my switch, and there is a pattern shown on the package that looks like the blue pattern on my switch.  Looks like the switches came with a few paper inserts so you could change up the patterns.

And again, the pictures of my switch.  Doesn't the blue-patterned paper look like the pattern 2nd from the left on that package above?

Office Ceiling - Part 4

Took a couple pictures of the office ceiling because it is sunny today!  It's so nice in here -- I have the ceiling light on, out of habit, but I hardly need to because the sunlight carries all through the room.

To the East...

To the West...
Lovely, sunny room!

Backyard View

It's been a long, very cold winter so far.  Not much has been progressing on the house...  Since it's been below zero most of the days in January, K has not gotten to work on the garage.  Plus there's way too much snow on the ground.

Anyway, there's still a lovely view out the patio door, most days.  Today there was a very beautiful train parked for most of the afternoon, and some fluffy snow was falling...
