...an enchanted driftwood chandelier

hello my sweets!
do you ever find yourself seeking something,
that you can't quite put your finger on?
you just know that when you see it ~
you.  will.  know.
this is the story
of just such an item
and how it came to be :)
a few ~ l o n g ~ weeks ago
i set out on a quest
to find a chandelier for my studio table.
not just ANY chandelier
THE chandelier!
an enchanting chandelier that would illuminate my pretties
as i created them...
and delight my heart to turn it on.
for my studio IS a magical place...
in those weeks of my quest,
i would find something that i thought "might" work,
bring it home ~
hold it up
and hold my breath!
yah no!!
was usually the response from my lips...
i felt like Goldilocks, i tell ya!
i had grown weary of looking
until one day, while creating at my studio table
a light bulb went on,
so to speak
and these photo's are the result of that epiphany that day...
as you may have already guessed
i ended up designing,
 what my heart was seeking...
which is what i should have done to begin with!!
a few lace covered pieces of perfectly greyed driftwood,
a hand gathered white linen shade,
crystal swags that dance when the sun hits them or the light is lit...
all spun into one enchanting chandelier!
another sea washed treasure,
to adorn my cottage...
this is my studio table...
it is ever so magical when i plug in my fairy lights around the table
and my enchanted driftwood chandelier!
most especially as the days start to grow shorter...
i know it will provide much more than just light
in the coming months ahead,
as i sit beneath it
 and create away...
for it will also allow me to be swept away
and dream
if only for a moment or two...
on such things as the beautiful sea
and pondering on other fairytale delights,
to share with all of you!!
like, perhaps this sea silk rhinestone cuff ...
i hope you enjoyed your visit today!
thanks for stopping by...

sea washed treasures...

hello again dear hearts!
it has been awhile
but today,
i have sea washed treasures to share...
i have been infusing my home
 with a french nordic/elegant seaside style for awhile now
and i couldn't be happier
perhaps i could ~
if my cottage were actually BY the sea
but i will dwell in the possibilities:)
my dear friend Sofia, sent me a birthday package,
with nothing but treasures from the sea...
who knew a box of driftwood, shells and seaweed
could be so adored!
i ask, how you could not adore these
seashell lockets?!
they create such a romantic sea washed vignette
a lace sail driftwood boat floats atop white, sparkling sand...
in a giant shell!

they fit perfectly into my sea cottage setting...
a world of white washed loveliness,
with touches of silver, pearl and blue.
an oh-so-lovely sea stick bundle
 rests on a bit of vintage silver lace...

a pretty room by day ~
or by night,
when the twinkle lights come on
and cast a soft glow on the pearl kissed walls...
if you seek a few of these sea washed treasures of your own
i invite you to stop by Sofia's etsy shop
faux coral can be found on my fireplace mantle
for a little while longer...
blue sea crystals dangle from their branches
a bit of whimsy in the land of odds...
and you remember my driftwood ladder...
i enjoy creating lovely comfort in my home:)
a place where i can whisper my name
on the things i find
Be * YOU * tiful!

 next week,
i will be showing you my driftwood chandelier!!!
ahhhh yes,
greyed driftwood and lace
meets crystals and linen
