Chandeliers





Last week while visiting my Favorite Blogs, I came across Chandy Love, a Blogpost from Tales from an OC Cottage, Chandeliers! I Love Chandeliers but I Love light, and lots of it! While reading the post it made me think of my own Great Chandeliers that I have acquired from the Auctions we have attended over the years. OC Cottage emailed me and suggested I do a Blog post on mine and link up to Cindy at My Romantic Home for her Show & Tell Friday.

So here I am my first post linking up to My Romantic Home to Share.

We acquired this Vintage Chandelier from a Auction in Florida. It was meant to hang in our Foyer in our MI Home. Well it made it up here but still not yet in the Foyer, and this was several years ago!

It is currently hanging in our Basement Family Room just tucked in a corner for safe keeping. It has over 500 intact Prisms. My winning Bid was $200. Someday it will hang in my Foyer, but probably of my next home(as we are looking).


The same Night, I also won this Chandelier(Image #10). Sorry to have to link, but the main image is on another PC. I Love the simple ornateness of this Chandelier, it hangs, yes after 3 years it was hung in the Breakfast Nook of our Fla Home. Winning Bid $20.

I hope this post Inspires you to look at other shopping venues for some Fabulous Buys!!
Please visit Cindy over at My Romantic Home for other Inspirations from Bloggers during Show & Tell Friday!!

Have a Good Week Friends!

"Colors of Summer" ~ MMP Shopping Event

MMP Friday Shopping Event August 6th "Colors of Summer"

Summer rushes in with a burst of color that delights the senses. Where the colors of spring are subtle and soothing, the colors of summer are bold and energizing. The sun shines bright, the skies are an azure blue, and you can almost envision the sights and sounds of summer fun that awaits you on the horizon. The bright, clear colors, excite our senses and encourage us to relax and play.

Colorful planters and dishes are brought out of storage and bright colored linens, freshened up for summer use.
It doesn’t matter what your year round decor is, the summer calls for colors that are bright and whimsical. Colors that say, come join us for some laughter and fun.

Chairs fill your living space, draped with colorful throws and cushions. Summer fruits and brightly colored birds and flowers, make their way into your summer decor. A simple corner, now ablaze with the colors of summer.

This is a season of vacations and celebrations that are meant to be shared with family and good friends. Dining tables are moved onto the patio or under the shade of a large oak tree in the garden. The brightest vintage tablecloths draped casually over mismatched tables, all reminiscent of another time, bursting with memories.

Mismatched dishes in bright summer colors are used to serve the summer fare. Fresh berries and bright yellow lemons, fill bowls and glass pitchers. Colorful vases are filled with fresh cut flowers is all shades of summer. Nothing needs to be coordinated, nothing looks out of place. The colors of popsicles and beach balls, strawberry shortcake and pink lemonade, bring us back to our childhood. Memories flood in and new memories are made.

Visit the boutiques at Make Mine Pink and capture your own special times, reminiscent of the colors of summer.

I hope to see 'You All this Week~End'!!
