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.


  1. Candle perfect for your garden palace. I like the wire wrappings on the candles and the little dangly bits. Beautiful!!

  2. Wonderful job with the wire. The Garden Palace is looking quite well put together.


  3. Like this! Love the glitzy bling you have added.
