Let there be light


The Garden Palace is electrified with candle power.
I fretted about how to use the candles in this chandelier ever since my dear son picked it up for me at a resale shop in Austin. 
I've had it so long that I daydreamed up all sorts of ways to power it with candles. 


Not so long ago just after falling down the Pinterest rabbit hole, I became intrigued and inspired by crafting with wire.


I saw and pinned several versions of this wire candle holder. 
I knew immediately. 
This was it. 
I tossed the tuna cans and all other daydreams.


The result thrills me. 


I didn't do anything to the chandelier.


This is the original finish and perfect for the Parlor Rose Garden.





Have a great week.
