My First Chandy!

And the first Goodwill treasure of the year and maybe the best of the year??? And only $4.00! Yippee! The sales girl was putting it out on the "floor" right as I was going out the door. SCREECH! U-TURN! Hello sweetie! Isn't it pretty?! I have discovered that chandies are VERY difficult to photograph! I had to wait the longest time for them to stop swinging! It was funny!

I have so many things to show you in the days to come! Thank you for your comments! I need my blog friendies!

Well, as you can tell my poor blog design is still being worked on! Please bear with me.

Have a grrrrreat day-okay?!

PS Can you tell that my "crystals" are plastic? ☺

This is awesome!!! Great score! I can't tell the crystals are plastic at all - looks like a full-on authentic treasure from an old movie or something! WTG & TFS!

How elegant! You're right, it just might be THE find of the year and what a steal! I can't wait to see where you hang it. I'm loving your blog design already.

Just stopping by to say HI! Your kitten header is adorable. I've been messing with my blog a bit too, mostly just re-arranging my side bar items. Remember, it's always a work in progress.
You certainly were in the right place at the right time for that cute chandy. Do you have a place all picked out for it in your farmhouse?

Hi Holly... What an awesome find with that chandelier. So many possibilities. You sure are one lucky girl when it comes to finding the best things at the Goodwill. I hardly ever have that much luck.

Are you going to paint it or leave it as is?

That beautiful chandelier was brought out just for you to see at the right moment!
It looks pricey and so beautiful!
Best find of the year!

Oh cute. Lucky girl to find that. I wanted a chandelier for the new addition but ended up with a fan with a light. We really needed the fan on that vaulted ceiling so out when my idea for the other darn it.
