holiday decor | Christmas Chandeliers

The Parisienne Farmgirl is full of beautiful posts, including great recipes and lovely home decor, but when I saw these exquisite chandeliers she decorated for Christmas I just had to share.

This is definitely my favorite...

Oh but I do really love this one too...

Don't they look like something from a high end show room?
Well done Parisienne Farmgirl!!!

You can check out more pics of her chandeliers here and a few more here.

And in case you thought those chandeliers were beautiful check out the rest that she has collected!

Seriously? Have you ever seen so much gorgeous lighting in one place?!?

Thanks Angela for your inspiration!

diy idea | No Sew Ruffle Tree Skirt

This is not the tree skirt project for the faint of heart...looks like a little patience is needed in making sooooo many ruffles but don't you think it's worth it?
So beautiful! I may even have to make one of these for myself. Ashley over at The Johnston's took on this great project and offers up a detailed tutorial here.
Let me know if you make one and how it goes! Best of luck!
Happy Crafting,
