Hospitality, Friendship, Encouragement

 Last week I found a metal chandelier on Facebook Marketplace that looked similar to the style I've been wanting. I messaged the seller, she responded quickly but she was in Greece on vacation. She was back this weekend so Tim and I went to look at it and I bought it. 

It's different than my 'dream' chandelier, which would be something a a bit less gothic.  However, this is a high end chandelier that a previous owner had put into the house where the seller lives, and she was wanting to sell them as she replaces them with her own style. I paid $50 for it.

It was not as brass/antique gold as I wanted to I used Rub N Buff on it.

That was better.

Tim hung it yesterday before lunch.

This last photo is in the morning light.

Now I maybe changing out the glass drops on it because I know that I can find crystal drops, and there is one missing on the bottom anyway.

It a pretty addition to our cottage, and a bit more in keeping with my English cottage look.

Yesterday, we had church and then the grands went swimming with a friend who came home with them after church. Later in the evening, Sarah's friends came over for games, and hot dogs. It was good to see them. 

In the last photo above I can see where the items that go into the baskets need to be tucked into the baskets so we don't have to look at them! Very classy! Lol.

I hope you all had a good weekend. It's going to be hot and sticky here this week, but we've had good rain this year, and last night a nice thunderstorm moved through. I haven't had to water my pots at all.

Tell me about your weekend in the comments!

That was a nice find and it looks great in your space. Fun. We had a very quiet weekend busiest day being Sunday. Early morning walk, got ready for Sunday School and Church and then home for another quiet day.

Oh, I love a good Marketplace find! What a bummer that I just missed seeing your new light! Next time . . . :)

Our weekend was busy with music practice, a granddaughter's birthday celebration, company for lunch after church. Good times!

  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
