As I have surfed blogs and flipped through magazines chandeliers always have caught my attention. Maybe because in the back of my mind I knew the chandelier I really wanted would be hard to find and if I found it I probably couldn't afford it. Because of course it had to be vintage and have real crystals.
So you can imagine how happy and excited I was when my neighbor walked across the street with a vintage, brass, crystal chandelier and asked if I wanted it. Yes, she just gave it to me and wouldn't accept any sort of payment. WOW, I am still speechless. She found it in her Mother's storage shed and they had no use for it anymore.
Once we got it hung I used a little brasso and hot water to shine her right up, now she just sparkles!
The details on this chandelier are so beautiful and fit the style of my house perfectly. I still can get over the fact that it was free, these are the kind of things I dream about!
