THE HOLLYWOOD PICKER


I found a metal coral chandelier today, and

it is staying in the car, it is not getting anywhere near this house,

because you know, it would never leave. I would have to

paint it blue or maybe charcoal gray and hang

it in the living room. And it would look----- Oh God!,

divine.

WOW! That's gorg! I think I'd paint it bright orange, like chicken tikka masala. That would be HOT!

Edith Hope said...

Dear Kevin, Ask yourself......can one have too many chandeliers.....no, then spray it and hang it!!!

Give in to it! It belongs in your house, and you know it!

I can't believe you are not putting that in your house. Yes, paint it a fabulous color and hang that baby. It's great...or take out the electrical add candles and put it in the grotto.....

Hollywood forever, Kevin said...

You guys are killing me. You know one of my jobs is buying and supplying, so I'm ignoring all you. But wait, Damn it! Nita, the grotto! hanging outside! you are so right. Alright, let me go take a look.

Gorgeous indeed!
I know Tabitha over at Bourbon and Pearls would swoon for that. She posted a similar image today as she professed her latest lighting lust.
By all means, let the light in ;)

What is temptation unless one yields to it! Go on you know you want to! Otherwise package it up and send my way!

I agree with an Urban Cottage, paint it orange or better yet, coral!

Barbara said...

How much would it be to supply it to me?

LPC said...

I found you at Tabitha's but I have to ask, do you know Jill at the blog Stella's Roar? I think you two might hit it off..

For God's Sake: KEEP IT! Doll it up and hang it where you will. It's great!

Mlle Paradis said...

omg that is madly fabulous! and if you keep it, i won't talk to you again unless you paint it blue or gray.

that is, unless you have a pink room! and then you can do coral or orange.

Kevin,
Take a moment, sit still for awhile, listen. Hear that? Hear the whisper? “Keep me Kevin, keep me Kevin, I could be so happy here”. See the chandelier wants to stay. Now “IF” I had such a chandelier here at Fox Paw Lodge I would call it a twig chandelier and cut some leaves out of copper flashing and wire to it. Hmmm, what part of Hollywood are you in, again? (lol). – G
