Chandelier LOVE

I have never shared anything from a catalog before.  I figure, we all get the same ones anyway.  But, when I went through the new Pottery Barn catalog today, I began swooning and haven’t stopped.  Have you seen this yet?

I am in love

I have an obsession with canning jars.  I have been trying to make a canning jar chandelier, in my head at least, for some time.  I even came home tonight and took the glass off of my chandelier in the kitchen (and if I have to admit, in the basement as well) and replaced it with canning jars.  Didn’t work out so well

Besides the fact that my house looks like a bomb blew up while I am putting away Christmas stuff.  But instead, I am fiddling with canning jars and posting about milk bottle chandeliers.

Oh, yeah, and dinner isn’t ready yet.  Yes, I am a bad Mother.

Anyway, back to that chandelier.  I am going to have to figure out a way to recreate that.  Honestly, if I thought it was big enough, I might just go ahead and order it, but it is too small for our table.

I do however, have an idea inspired by this chandelier.  I know, you are sitting on the edge of your seat! 

You will just have to wait. 

I really do need to make dinner.  Notice I said “make” not “cook”.  I am really not that bad of a Mother, I just need to warm left overs.

Plus, there is NO way I could photograph anything in my house right now!  Give me a day or two and lets see what I come up with!

You might like this canning jar chandelier. For some reason, I think I remember reading that she did it herself? Maybe you could contact her and she could tell you how.
