Chandelier's Make Me Happy

It has been frantic around here the last few days. My Mom is in town and that's always busy. We have a lot to do in a short amount of time......always. 

We've (my Dad and I, but mostly my Dad) have been hanging lights! We seem to run into a problem with each one....I guess that's what you get when you don't buy new! #isaveoldthings is my favorite hashtag on instagram!

Thought I would quickly show you this one beauty hanging in the den off the kitchen. It's a small room with low ceilings and I didn't want anyone to bump their head. I had to go with a flush mount and I'm not generally a fan of those! This one I found in the lighting graveyard at Southern Accents. It's just about perfect! I'm feeling that Rough Luxe aesthetic throughout this house and this light fits right in that category. 

Two more to hang and I think we will be finished! Oh wait, I still have one to buy....or to find....or create! I can't just settle!!!

  1. In the mid-19th century, as gas lighting caught on, branched ceiling fixtures called gasoliers (a portmanteau of gas and chandelier) were produced, and many candle chandeliers were converted. By the 1890s, with the appearance of electric light, some chandeliers used both gas and electricity. As distribution of electricity widened, and supplies became dependable, electric-only chandeliers became standard.Crystal Chandelier
