Where Bloggers Create 2015 ~A Christmas Present from the Heart ~~Our Farmhouse Chandelier

 
Welcome to my Sewing Studio.
This is my fifth year to participate in "Where Bloggers Create".
If you missed my tour last year, click here for the link.
I had just returned to the studio after breaking both of my wrists...
and you can see many, many details in my studio!

Then, remember,  2012 was the first year of my craft table.  Click here.

Still on the main stage...
Mr. Hobbylock, my serger.
Miss Sapphire, my sewing machine.
Mrs. Elna, my back-up.


Introducing this year, my precious Family Farmhouse Chandelier.
When you are lucky enough to have a room of your own,
you want to surround yourself with the items that inspire you.

Remember that trip out to our vacant farmhouse?
It had been surrounded by the lake water, so was impossible to get there until winter and the ground was frozen.
We drove over the ice to get there.

Someone had broken in to our house...

...I had horrid visions of vandals smashing 
all of those precious heirlooms in our family home.

Hubby and I made a quick decision to bring that chandelier home...
the one that was in the parlor.
I just wanted to preserve some of the family's precious heirlooms.

This past Christmas, 
hubby took the farmhouse chandelier to a lighting specialist.
He had it re-wired and ready to install in my studio.

I can't think of anything more perfect!
Thank you, honey.

Take care,
~Natalie

What an amazing chandelier! It's a shame there are people out there who think nothing of vandalizing. My in-laws have a lake property that has been broken into a few times. Nothing valuable is kept there anymore.
At any rate, the chandelier looks amazing in your studio!
Thank you for sharing!

It's so great to have treasured heirlooms from our past. I wish I had more, but I make do with vintage goodies from my "adopted" ancestors! The chandelier you have is really cool. It is great that hubby was able to wire it up so you can enjoy it all the time! Thank you so much for joining the party and sharing it with us!
xo,
Karen

It's obvious I'm running late to the party, but I am so glad to be here now. I couldn’t miss this opportunity to see your incredible chandelier and how lovely it looks in your vintage inspired room. I have ONE old sewing machine, so I was swooning when you showed three. Thanks for sharing this lovely lighting that has brightened my day!
