Sweet New / Old Crystal Chandy

 A Dream Has Come True!
Isn't she a Beauty?

 I have been wanting an old crystal chandy for so many years.
A few months ago I want to an auction and there she was. . .calling my name.
"Ahrisha. . .Do you see me hanging here in the corner?"
"Take me Home."  She whispered.
That's a reflection of the Christmas tree in the mirror.  Yes, it's still up and I am lovin' it.

There is a tiny little metal tag wired to the top labeled "SPAIN".
Lots of bronze and crystals.  Just like I requested.
I am considering replacing the candles with new creamy colored ones with the drippy wax running down the sides.  What would you do,  Keep it original or replace them?
I hung her in a corner of the livingroom by the sofa for reading light.  I love to curl up here with a book.
I am sharing at these wonderful blog friends.
Stop by for a visit.

What an exquisite chandelier, dear one!!! I adore all the crystal!
I'd leave the Spain tag intact. Love the amount of reflection in the room and the mirror!!!
I, also, visited your Joyeux Noel post...love, love, love your White & Silver tree!!! I have thoughtsof this decor with a touch of green or aqua for Christmas 2013!
P.S. Thank you for your sweet comment and visit!!! Stop by again soon!

Oh my! I have serious chandy envy! This one is very pretty, and just the right size! I also love your wallpaper! I do love the gold banded candles that are on it, but the drippy ones would look nice, too. Mmmmm decisions, decisions.... You'll have to let us know! xx

I absolutely LOVE crystal chandeliers! I have been hunting them down and taking them home for quite some time now. I have so many now, that I resell them. I just buy them up, rewire/update them and resell, sometimes I replace one of my own. Congratulations on your find, She is GORGEOUS!!! Good Luck in your next treasure! ~Tammy
