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. Love your creativity & vision!

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


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