A friend called and asked if I would like to ride with her to a store that was going out of business. As we were looking around I looked up and spotted a strawberry chandelier (new, not antique). It was love at first (re)sight! I was thrilled but dismayed to see that this one was also out of my price range! Gretchen encouraged me to offer a lot less (what did I have to lose?). I did and after a bit of going back and forth we agreed on a price! I'm going to put it on the front porch. It has me dreaming of alfresco dinners.

Love at first sight....
Three years ago, when my sister was visiting, we went shopping at a nearby town that has lots of antique stores. In one of the shops I spotted an antique chandelier (I adore them!) that had strawberries on it. It was really, really out of my price range, but I have thought about that chandelier a lot. I've even looked on ebay several times but not had any luck. Until Saturday.
