Monday is the first day of the Linky party. Some fun blogs have teamed up in hosting this wonderful Christmas Par-tee! There is a topic for each day.
The topic for Debbie Doos Blogging & Blabbing is ‘holiday copycat’.
I love Pottery Barn and their unique items. Among my favorites are their ‘found treasures’. However, I don’t always love the price. Although I must say, I have gotten some great items off of their clearance.
A year or two ago they came out with a rustic chandelier. It was a round ring that they filled with candles. I loved the way it looked. At Christmas time they showed it all decked out for the holidays, sound familiar? I tried to find a pic, but they must not carry it any longer. I think it ran somewhere in the $300 price range.
Here is my copycat chandy. I found it at a local shop, “Busy Biddy”. It was marked $85. She gave me 10% off, making it $77.50. If I did my math correct.
Hubby helped hang it in my living room. From there I turned it into my ‘candy chandy’.
Using fresh pine boughs and items I already had, all except the candy canes, which I need a few more. I decked it out to match my gingerbread/candy themed tree.
I have two darling gingerbread stitchery patterns that I haven’t done because I didn’t think I had anywhere to hang them. Thinkin they’d look awfully cute on that there wall.
My rustic chandelier may not be Pottery Barn, but for the price I think it’s pretty darn cute! Excited to see what fun things will find their way up there after Christmas.
Leaving you with a few close ups.
Notice the touch of white? I decided (after it was all decorated) that maybe the boughs needed some snow to match the tree. Had some spray snow I hit it with here and there. I had to be careful not to get it everywhere. Phooey! Liked it better before. Looks too blotchy. Too bad, so sad, stayin that way!
I hope you’ve been having a bit of fun doing a little copycatting yourself this Christmas season!
I will be sharing my chandy with these parties:
