Historic Old Town Snow!

Below is the reason I was unable to post for the blog last week.  While visiting relatives out of town a blizzard came along and dumped over 9" of snow, leaving me stranded an extra day.  After the storm cleared I tried to head home once again but my vehicle broke down and it was towed to the  shop.  Hence..... I had a great time visiting and touring all of the old town historic district in Longmont, Colorado.  I saw a few wonderfully restored and beautiful old homes as well as some unusual lighting fixtures and stained glass that caught my eye.

Fork Chandalier? I like it!
I think it would make a great wind chime too!
