Is there an annoying buzz or hum in your house?
Do you have a buzz or hum? Here’s how to track it down and get rid of it.
I want control over my light levels and I love dimmers. I have them all over the house. But one problem with dimmers can be buzz. Even if the buzz doesn’t sound like it comes from the dimmer, the dimmer most likely is the culprit. Continue reading
Jonathan Y Eldora Antler Chandelier
Cast Resin hand finished to look like natural antlers
I overheard a couple in a lighting store super offended about an antler chandelier. It wasn’t even natural antler, it was made from cast resin.
They thought that deer had died to make the chandelier.* They compared it to killing elephants for the ivory. Continue reading

Enbrighten Classic LED Café String Lights run to an outdoor fireplace
We just got some Adirondack chairs and a fire pit to enjoy in back of our new house. Nothing as ambitious as this outdoor fireplace, but I want to do something a little more than the chairs on the grass we have now.

We had string lights for the porch of our log cabin. I used to have to replace them nearly every year until I bought Enbrighten cafe lights. They are still there and still working, but I can’t take them. The cabin is a vacation rental now and people use the lights. Continue reading
