Welcome to the 120th Metamorphosis Monday!
Happy Metamorphosis Monday! Things are about to get cranking once again with the home office. I’m still waiting on a component that’s backordered, but the chandelier is here. Unfortunately, the contractor who will install it (along with the crown molding) is currently out of town. He is supposed to be back in town this week, so hopefully I’ll have some neat updates to show you real soon.
In the meantime, here are a few pics of the tole chandelier that will ultimately hang in the office. It is covered with 14 flowers, actually more if you count all the flowers in the individual clusters. I’ve been trying to name them all…maybe you can help.
Do the purple ones look like phlox or violets? Linda suggested the little purple flowers could be periwinkle (myrtle). They do look similar.
The pink, blue and yellow ones around the top remind me of Lily of the Valley or bell flowers, although, I don’t think they are normally in those colors. There are three roses, two pink and one red. You can see the red one below.
Ummm, wonder if the large pink flowers are Plumeria?
I really like all the variation of color in the green foliage. That should help it to blend/work with the chair I posted about HERE. The office seems to be taking on a botanical theme. I can live with that.
There are three happy daisies on this chandelier.
So what do you think? Do you like this one better than the one I almost won HERE but ended up losing? They are very different, aren’t they?
Looking forward to your Before and Afters!
