If my house could handle bling...

I would add one or (let's get real) both of these chandeliers to it:

Hampton Bay Maria Theresa 6-Light Chandelier

Hampton Bay Kristin 3-Light Mini-Chandelier

I saw the first one, the Maria Theresa, at one of my favorite local shops over the weekend and was told it was from Home Depot.  The proprietor, Heather, had two of these chandeliers hanging in her newest business venture and they were stunning in person.

So when I was in Home Depot yesterday, picking up spray paint, I passed through the lighting section to take another longing look at it. And then I saw the smaller three-light chandelier, called the Kristin, hanging next to it.

Argh, sooo pretty!! Maybe I'm not creative enough, or enough of an out-of-the box thinker, to imagine crystal chandeliers in a log house, but I don't really see it working.  What do you think?

Oh, and to add insult to injury? They're pretty darn affordable at just $99 apiece.

The immediate solution to this "problem" is that I need to show these to my sister for her new house. If she gets one, I can at least visit it at her place. :)

And speaking of her new house, I finally took the before photos this past weekend. I'll be posting them later this week!


  1. So pretty. The second one is my fav!

  2. Hey hey, one of those might look quite nice in the living room! Then you can have the old fixture. :D

  3. They are sooo pretty! I bet you could fit one of these pieces of eye candy somewhere in your home! A girls gotta have a chandy....!

  4. Hi, I would put a chandelier up in your gorgeous home!!Why not!I love your log home, and i think a chandelier would look so cozy.


  5. I always think if you go with what you love then it'll form a look of it's own. I think your amaaaaaaing house could take just about anything you wanted. It's gooooorgeous!
