With only...

two months to live I would not be wasting my days looking at anything less than these...unless of course I could spend those last two moths at Versailles. In the Hall of Mirrors to be precise. There one would have all the chandeliers one could possibly want. After all, there is no point in dreaming small when facing... Hell, there is no point in dreaming small. Ever.

Well, glad to know that this is referring to another post, and that you do in fact have more than two months to live (thank goodness!). These are gorgeous chandeliers- I could be quite happy with them.

I am so crazy about these chandeliers. I have seen so many in dusty shops and longed to own one. Luckily, they are an acquired taste, I think, so perhaps one day I shall find one that fits my budget! For some reason, I want to hang the huge Barovier e Toso one shown in a kitchen.
