look what I forgot

So we bought this ceiling medallion years ago, when we were living in our first house, and never put it up. Partly because we had popcorn ceilings in that house and it just didn't look right, and partly because we never replaced the chandelier that came with the house. We brought it with us when we moved, and I CANNOT believe I forgot to have Charlie put it up when we switched out the chandelier.

He thought we'd lost it or left it, but I marched right up to the attic and grabbed it. So, my husband, who really earned some jewels for his heavenly crown, took down the new chandelier and put up the medallion, then re-installed the chandelier.

Isn't it cool? I think it is just wood, or some kind of composite wood, but it came pre-painted and looks totally fabulous on the ceiling. Or at least, I think it looks fabulous.

So, with my free chandelier, I got a forgotten about medallion to complete the look. Sure, we paid $25 for it maybe five years ago, so I consider it free now. LOL.

Oh, keep me in your prayers on Tuesday. Lots going on and many job discussions in the works. Prayers, please!

That's gorgeous! I think I'm obsessed with the chandelier and medallion.

I'm sorry to hear about your job situation. I'll definitely be praying for you!

My husband was just talking about those tonight. It took me a minute to realize what he was talking about since he was calling them "doilies." :)

Yours is gorgeous! My ceilings aren't quite grand enough for something so lovely. We just have kind of plainish doilies.

Prayers to you!
