My House Jewelry

As I have mentioned before I have a small house that we just moved into a few months ago.  I loved this house from the first moment I saw it on the internet.  There of course was a few little things I had to change about it to make it "me".  The dining room is smack in the middle of the house and it had a pewter modern chandelier.  When a friend mentioned she wanted a pewter chandelier  I quickly text her a picture and she bought it from me. Then I sold a piece of furniture too big to fit in our new house and I was able to get this chandelier that I love...

 The minute I saw this on Home Depot online I thought this is exactly what I am looking for! As a added bonus it was very affordable..$169.  You can find it here.  It has an aged iron look with beautiful HEAVY crystals. Not plastic ones like you would expect for the price.  I love white antique chandeliers like my daughter has in her home but I just felt like this was the most practical for our house.  I couldn't be more pleased. Thankfully since I have no patience my daughters were able to put it together pretty quickly.

So as you can see, you can see it from 1/2 the house..I can even see it from my bedroom. Candice from HGTV always calls sparkly chandeliers the jewelry for your house and I am so pleased we have such a lovely piece of house jewelry!
I am a strong believer that material things don't matter in the scheme of things and its who you are as a person and the people that are in your life that are whats really important.  I thank God though that he does allow me to have these little treasures that brighten my days! They are just like the icing on the cake of a beautiful life.
