In my last post I shared the Montgolfier chandelier in the Breakfast Room. Though lovely, there was something about it that didn't feel congruous with the room.
So I did what I always do...
I became serenity challenged, unbalanced and a little restless.
Has this ever happened to you?
I feel it is my obligation to create an air of calm in our home environment and this...this mere chandelier was determined to threaten our harmonious existence!?
I think not.
Each time I passed I would scrutinize it...but not too obviously, lest it sense my vulnerability.
"Dost thou mock me, fixture?"
When I saw my chance I leapt with a stealth I had never before known!
I crept upon it when the lights were extinguished and I bound the miscreant with crystal embellishments!
Feverishly, I worked to tame the beastie who had taunted my waking moments and menaced my slumber!
I had vanquished the traitorous villain and returned our home to the halcyon days of yore!
It shall vex me no more!
Woe be unto the next rogue of scurrilous intent who dares to pass through these halls...
I am ready for you!
Whatever the threat, I shall emerge victorious!
This is what happens when I don't get enough sleep!
Hope you like the chandelier!
when in doubt -add crystals! I loved it before but love it more now. Glad you can now rest easy!ReplyDelete
I never rest, my friend. The mind...it never sleeps. Now I am wondering if it is, perhaps, too much?Delete
I love a little added bling...looks beautiful Andie!ReplyDelete
I think it has more depth now. I had just enough to finish and am really pleased with the result!Delete
Andie...you entertain us all with your ability to create a lavish environment in your home...and now you have entertained us with your witty *Shakespearian* style of writing. Love the bling...and glad you were able to foil the *scurrilous intent* of that light fixture! Warmly, Mary, The Old ElfReplyDelete
LOL! I had so much fun writing that! I get a little slap-happy when I don't get enough sleep!Delete
You do realize that you are LOOSING YOUR TINY MIND?ReplyDelete
If you're not careful.....you'll end up as crazy as I am.
Oh. You noticed?Delete
So much fun to follow along with you, Andie. I think the added crystals were a splendid idea. Enjoyed your Shakespearian ditty. '-)ReplyDelete
Enjoy the weekend.......Sarah
I always look forward to your kind replies. Thank you, Sarah!Delete
what a cool chandelier. i am going backwards in posts catching up...i love it. so you added the crystals? they look like they should have been there all along. you sound perfectly normal to me by they way. xoReplyDelete
I am MAD for that chandelier. Gilding the swags and adding the crystal strands and pendants was a stroke of pure genius. What I love most about all the grandeur , elegance and sense of drama with which you have infused your house, Andie, is the running theme of delightful WHIMSY that keeps it all from being the least bit pretentious.ReplyDelete
You really should be officially named a National Treasure. And no, Im not kidding.
