You Light Up My Life

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

O.K. I admit it. I am involved in a romantic relationship. I am in love.

It is just a simple, five arm brass chandelier that has moved into the farmhouse with me. It is another “oldie but goodie” that was taken out of my brother’s home during a remodel in the 70’s. He put it up in my mother’s dining room where it remained for several years before I became the proud owner.

It once was new but now is old. It has been rejected, removed, re-cycled, repainted and rewired. It has a history. WE have a history. I simply cannot imagine this farmhouse without its little bling. I love it. It lights up my life.

Please leave a comment if you stopped by the farmhouse today. We just love having company.

Au revoir,

Bonjour Jacques!
I love your chandelier! And thank you for coming to visit me. I suppose you found me on Karen's blog. She is a darling to direct some traffic my way and vice-versa! We Francophiles must stay together! I totally believe in recycling things and embellishing with lovelies from things past. Please come again and I will visit you as well. Au revoir! Anita

Your French is great! I will certainly keep updated on your blog and I particularly love the idea you have to renovate and recycle. I thought of what you said today as I decided that I am not going to look for a new table for my bathroom; I am going totally vintage. Carry on the dream!!!A la prochaine, Anita
