You light up my life

Hey guys, I'm back again, although I don't know for how long, because I am positively melting away here. Holland is in the middle of a heatwave and even my computer has slowed down, it's so hot! I felt like writing about something non-beach-related, but wanted to stay to keep it light (forgive that incredibly lame pun, and the equally lame title, but my brain is in the first stages of full-on melt-down mode).

Anyhoo, that's why I've gone overboard with the chandelier pictures. Saying I love chandeliers is a gross understatement. I love what they do to a room, whether lit or not. It's really like home decor's equivalent of jewelry, and who doesn't love jewelry?! The rooms below (and the one above - the only example of a mirrored ceiling I have found that doesn't scream adult movies - I loooove it! ) are all perfection, but the chandeliers really do add an extra dimension. Don't you think?

My own little chandelier in my very humble abode! Sorry about the awful picture and the lego boxes in the background!
