chandeliers and an old shutter…

when I shared my headboard before christmas, I knew I needed something with color behind the old birdcage stand, holding a chandelier-(left side of this pic).
I got this shutter for christmas and now, the chandelier stands out.  the pillow (and matching comforter) were also xmas gifts.
and santa brought this cute sign, too—don’t know where I’ll put it, but I love it:).
yesterday, we got just enough snow to cause 67 wrecks-yikes!
sharing this with faded charm and knick of time—thanks for looking!


  1. Lynn, you got some marvelous Christmas gifts! People know you very well. ;) All gorgeous pics, too. Happy New Year!

  2. Love your Christmas gifts! Your backyard looks so pretty--love snow, hate to drive in it!

  3. I loved every single thing you showed us and that last photo really captured my heart. Loved the red and green wreath next to the snow. We had brrrrr cold temps. today but no snow and it's getting warmer again in a few days. Okay by me. Love your blog! xo

  4. LOVEEEEEEE the shutter behind the chandelier and that sign! Your family/friends give awesome stuff for Christmas! :)

  5. I love the shutter, it fits there perfectly! Our snow has all melted, which I can't say I'm too sad about. :)

  6. OK, yeah, love and love and love...but that DOOR in your YARD. O MY GOSH. It reminds me of "The Secret Garden." It looks like it came out of Better Homes and Gardens or something. Just gorgeous.

  7. Love it all!!!

  11. So absolutely beautiful, Lynn! You have got the touch!
    Happy New Year!

  12. Gorgeous chandelier - looking for a similar one to go inside a bird cage in my 'cottage den'.....amazing having that shutter behind it makes it stand out so nicely! xoxo, tracie

  13. What a perfect shutter and pretty pillow!

  14. What a charming room you've created! I love how Santa brought you such sweet vintage accessories! He tends to only bring me electronics...which I totally appreciate, but just one time it would be fun if he picked out something old and shabby to bring me! I bought myself a bird cage stand for a little chandelier I've had! I just love that look! Happy New Year and Happy White Wednesday!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,
    p.s. I'll be following and look forward to more lovely inspiration from ya!

  17. What a great idea to hang your chandelier in front of the shutter. The snow picture is gorgeous it looks like a magazine picture!
