Nothing Like a Little Bling....

I'm not a flashy kind of gal, but I just love a chandelier full of bling, and if it's an antique chandelier my heart pounds that much harder!!!!!! I made a quick run to my favorite thrift shop, Bibles for China and they were having a 1/2 of lighting sale. So I zoomed to the back of the store to check it out. I didn't see anything that caught my. But I never leave with out looking in the shopping cart by the do not enter sign. And there laying on top of all the junk was this beautiful antique chandelier. There wasn't a price on her yet but that didn't stop me from scooping her up and heading straight to the check out. I inquired about her price. The nice lady said she would have to go and find out what they wanted for her. When she returned she said she was $40.00 but it was my lucky day and I could get her for $20.00. I said "SOLD"! She doesn't have all her crystals and is missing a sleeve and has some paint on her, but that didn't keep me from hanging her in the entryway to be seen by all! I'll be working on getting her decked out with the rest of the crystals that she needs. Look how pretty the craftsmanship is. All the detail and the ceiling medallion. I'm so happy to have her!!!!!
