The final Round Top project completed - assembling the swag chandelier from the antique lanterns. We are considering whether the lanterns need candles. Not sure yet. I added some sweetness to some jars by adorning them with a simple bow and a charm from my childhood charm bracelet, and enjoyed a beautiful rose in a jar converted to a basket with a wire loop. Weekend simplicity.
I've been going crazy for these industrial lamp pendants and reproduction carbon filament bulbs. Primitive design combined with the romance of an earlier era. What could be more perfect to illuminate a small corner of the world?
One scene, actually. This single project consumed a significant portion of my weekend. We purchased the old decorative wood panel in Round Top, and more recently, a handful of assorted batik fabrics. Stretched the fabric over frames, then measured, marked and hung. Despite the rustic simplicity of pattern and hue, the large grouping provides a modern edge to our decor.
