I'm not a fan of all the brass in this house, but it IS a rental and we DO fit, so I'll not complain :)  I'm grateful.  But, I have not enjoyed this chandelier.  Our tree is overrunning with ornaments.  When David and I first started dating, we bought each other CHEAP ornaments for Christmas.  That started the tradition of doing so every year... only the next year, there was a diamond ring attached to the ornament :)  Our first Christmas, we couldn't afford ornaments for the tree.  I cross stitched one as a gift for him and bought a box of mini ornaments figuring having a lot was better than having big ones.  The tree was pitiful.  We passed the tradition onto our kids, buying them an ornament every year.  I want them to have a box of decent ornaments for their first tree... something with memories attached.  Last year I bought each of them a "USA" themed nutcracker b/c it was the year David entered politics.
But back to the chandelier... due to the abundance of ornaments that comes along with buying them every year for ourselves and 5 children... some get put on the dining room light fixture.  I think it improves this one so much that I just might have to find some clear balls to hang on it year round...
((will change the stuff under it... want to get a white poinsettia))

I'm loving this little $7 nativity from Oriental Trading.

sorry it is upside down :(  He was so proud of his "toast in a basket" that he carried to the bedroom to show me.  Then he saw the basket was broken and said he'd kiss it.

LOVE how the choir shirts turned out.  Same design as last year's but on a heather navy and 2 colored instead of just one.  The "Arkansas Baptist Choir" was open... like the clef... in last year's shirt.
