... Don't you just love white roses? And pearls? And crystals??
Speaking of crystals, I did a no-no the other day, while thrifting... (Note to my DH: if you happen to be reading, please skip this post ;))
Back to my thrifting raid. I have been admiring fabulous chandeliers around blogland, lately. They remind me of my childhood days, because in my parents' and Granny's homes there were many of them, both huge and small. The funny thing is that I hated them at that time (especially because I was the drop- cleaner! Hehe). When Hubby and I got married, we wanted a no-chandy-home (he grew up with them too, it was very à la mode when we were young). I cannot believe that when some of my Granny's chandeliers were available for me to inherit, I didn't want them. Gosh, they were beautiful. Boohoo.
The other day, while I was at the thrift store, I stumbled upon this magnificent little jewel.
No one had fallen in love with it yet, so the gal offered it to me for 10 euros/$12/£8. I didn't need a chandelier now, but it was such a bargain. The crystals were all intact. The shape was lovely. Not too big, not too small... to cut a long story short, it came home with me!!!!!!!!! I have 'white-spray-paint-plans' for it... ;)
Please don't think I'm nuts, as my hubby would (naturally I hid... ahem, packed my treasure already!). You can hear me complaining all day because I have too much stuff to pack and move, and I just bought a chandelier to bring with me! But I'm sure he'll be happy seeing it in its white glory, hanging from the ceiling. Won't he? LOL
Have a wonderful day, white/chandelier lovers or not! I'm linking this post to White Wednesday, hope you have the chance to visit Kathleen and all the other participants to see their whites.
