Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

Welcome to another Show and Tell Friday!  I'm sharing my dining room chandelier today.  I bought this at a garage sale a few years ago for about $25 or $30 dollars. I had to rewire it but it was worth it!
It's not a really old one, I think it's from the 1970s.


During the holidays I enjoy decorating it with greenery...

The chandelier reminds me of one my daughter-in-law's mother has in her dining room. I keep telling her if she ever wants to get rid of it I want first dibs. It's sooooo pretty!

Thats a darling chandy, Cindy. Very, very pretty. Good job! I think chandeliers add SO MUCH to a decor. Now I'd like one on the side porch but when winter comes, it would get smashed to smitherines by the fierce winds and snow. Susan

Cindy I love your chandelier, I have a huge crystal chandelier
from a house that was built in
1926. I clean mine with a spray
from Lowe's. All those crystals
would be a nightmare to clean
without it. I just love all your
rooms and the way you decorate.

I want one so badly for my bedroom or bathroom but can't seem to find on as pretty as yours OR as reasonably priced. I'll just keep looking.

It fits your dining room PERFECTLY!

Love the romantic styling of your room. I noticed at Xmas time the blue drapes and the shimmery blues and silvers look so pretty with all the white. Do you switch out drapes by the season?

Snappy Di said...

I've always wanted a pretty, sparkly chandelier. However, Hubby likes VERY gawdy ones so due to not agreeing we have simply never purchased one. Yours is fabulous!

Cass @ That Old House said...

What a gorgeous chandelier! It is perfect in your dining room -- just the right amount of sparkle in all the white.

I put greens on my chandelier at the holidays, too -- it always looks so bare after Epiphany.

Have a lovely weekend -- Cass

Your home is so beautiful! I love all the pictures, but the one with the Christmas decorations is just so lovely! I love your style and your blog. This is my first time joining in on your fabulous link party. I think I may be a little late at #132 (LOL). I'm going to add your button to my sidebar, so I don't forget to join in a little sooner next time. Thanks for hosting!
Have a wonderful weekend,

I just love your home. All the things I love and make me feel comforted. I love the seashell wreath you are giving away. If I win it I will give it to my sister who has a tiny apartment at The Cape. She has that theme. I love seeing how happy you are on FB and how you enjoy your friends and life Cindy. Blessings to you!
