The annual Kentucky trip happened last week, and let me tell you it was much needed. It was nice to throw caution to the wind and just go. Forget school. Forget work.

My aunt lives in a little town called Elkton and it is seriously the cutest place ever. All the homes are decorated to the nines, every one knows each other, and and they have amazing antique stores. Cue this baby.

A vintage capiz shell chandelier. With brass details! Only $62! 

I'd like to say there was no question in snapping this baby up. But that would be a lie. She is big, and fragile. But after summoning my aunts, googling the standard height for a dining table, having Evan measure our ceiling to floor height, and then asking the antique store for a tape measure I pulled the trigger. 

I am happy to report she traveled well. All I have to do now is run a light down the center and have the electrician come and install it. 

Hopefully it all works according to plan!


  1. That a beauty! Can't wait to see it UP!!!

    1. Thanks! I can't wait to see it up either. I will probably just stare at it for hours. haha
