A Chandelier In The Trees

  I hung a chandelier in my tree!

I've always thought this table on our terrace would be a wonderful place to have tea parties with my little granddaughter - and it simply would not do without a chandelier for candlelight.

Or perhaps I hung it to give my Father and Mother-In-Law another reason to shake their heads at me.  They like to see the quirky things I do, but I can tell they really have no idea why I do them.  Their son is a CPA after all, and well.......he is organized, nice and neat........and I make things out of junk!

It was especially fun watching my FIL wonder how I got that chandelier hanging from a branch waaaaay up there.  It was quite difficult and took me almost a year of trying different things, but I finally did it!  I'm a little embarrassed to tell you the many things I tried......but let's just say I'm glad the neighbors windows are all stick in tact.

I think it is quite fun to look out our Dining Room French Doors and see it hanging there - ever so elegant.  It certainly is a conversation piece when people come over.

This is a view into the backyard when sitting under the chandelier.

How do you feel about chandeliers in trees?
I'd love to hear your thoughts. 

To see how I went about hanging this, go here.


  1. i really, really, really want to know HOW you got it up there!

  2. I love chandeliers in trees. I bought one years ago but have never hung it. Maybe yours will motivate me to get busy.

  3. I love it! And now you have ME curious just how it got up there!

  4. In answer to your inquiring minds......I wrote a post on it, haha. You can see it here


I LOVE your ideas and comments. Thanks for taking the time :)
