The Ladies with the Lamps

Last week we received our long-awaited shipment of 300 new lamps for our guest rooms.  We are replacing every lamp in every room in the hotel with new style lamps, made to be much more user-friendly. 

Here are some photos, both silly and serious, of our work.
 Karen and Lindsay were great at assembling the lamps with their bases.
 Claire always make sure we have fun at whatever we do.
 Christine had the task of cutting off all of the plastic wrappings on about 200 lamp shades!  She was a good sport!!
 New floor lamps bring light right over your shoulder for good reading on the sofa.
 These are our favorite new lamps.  They have two outlets built into the base, so if you need to charge a cellphone, or iPod, or computer, the power is at your fingertips!
The pineapple is the universal symbol of hospitality. 

While not pictured here, some of the lamps are now wall-mounted to give light closer to where it is needed, without taking up precious space, especially in our smaller rooms.

I hope you enjoy this additional enhancement to our gracious guest rooms.  And stay tuned -- there are more improvements yet to come this winter.  I mean LOTS more!

I hope to see you here.
