she's a beauty

large and drippy aren't great descriptors of something really so beautiful.
unless
of course
you are this:

a large, drippy chandelier.
my grandma passed away last month, just before christmas.  this is the one thing that i really wanted of hers.

i remember always sitting at the kids table at her house when i was young.  i will never forget the first time i sat at the big table (i was 23 years old).  it felt special, sitting at the adult table under this beautiful chandelier.
i felt so grown up.
i feel so lucky to have this piece from her.

my plan was to put her in my living room, but she is too large. (really meaning that mr. traybella at 6'4" hits his head on it)  and since i don't have a designated dining space (because i move my dining room table around all the time) i have decided that she will hang proudly in my bedroom.  i can't wait to get her hung there and see her sparkle.
RIP grandma.
