The Chandy and the Cloche

The Dining Room Chandelier
has some Autumn Bling going on now
Twinkle Lights in the Center
are so pretty at night.
(Battery operated ~ I just wish I didn't have to climb on a chair to turn them off and on)
The dining room cloche with a sparkly pumpkin

~ Delightfully Welcoming Fall ~

Well, you know how much I love your style! And two of my favorite things: the chandy and the cloche! You've put them together in such a pretty way. They just say "Happy Fall"!

Simply Sparkling decor dear. Your elegance is lovely. Climbing? Where is the remote to turn those twinkles on/off? Beautiful Autumn to you...

Thank you all for your comments! The twinkle lights are two branch-like stems, L.E.D battery operated, with an on/off switch, purchased at Michaels. The chandelier hangs over my dining room table so I just have to climb onto a chair to turn them on or off, I hope you all wren't picturing me climbing a ladder each time, te-heeeee!!!!

I so love the title of this sounds so good that I just want to curl up by the fire and HEAR THE TALE, with flicker lights from your chandy!!!!

DEAREST, YOU FEEL BETTER TODAY????? It is so strange to have you "out of commission!" NOW I AM THE ONE...I got a substitute teacher for tomorrow and I am sneezing, headachy and runny nosed...oh that was a terrible sentence!!!!!!

I AM HOME TOMORROW.....I will be working on my Etsy, after some rest of course and blogging. SALES HAVE HALTED but maybe that is good for now, so I can catch my breath!!!!!

I bet the twinkle lights look so pretty at night!
I have NOT done any fall decorating at all. That is what I am doing for the rest of the day!
Have a pretty day!

Dear Violet,

Thank you so much for visiting, and it is wonderful to meet you!

You work is so magnificent. I had the pleasure of seeing some of your gorgeous creations chez Anita, who so lovingly displays them. And you will be glad to know that glitter is one of my passions! hee..:)

C'est moi Claudette said...

I must say your "beach" bicycle" and those colourful window sills in your last post were AMAZING.
Your fur babies were the "piece de resistance".
I'm sorry that you have to climb up and turn the pretty lights on and off Violet. Please don't fall.
Thank you for coming over again and helping me heal. We bury mom on Friday. I went to see Sister today. She has been such a wonderful rock in my life.
Friends have also been so wonderful. I thank God for all of you.
Love Claudie

Just fabulous! Your personal touches are amazing!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

What a great idea using the twinkly lights in the chandy! I have some beaded wire garland wrapped around my office crystal chandy that sparkles off the reflection, but twinkly lights are a super idea.
