Dwelling With French Iron

is surely home, for there the heart can rest."

Iron candelabra rustic with the right amount of grandeur.

Complete peace. A dwelling where safety, inspiration and love abide is truly home. Doré, what a great find, that candelabra! I wish I could show you my theatre and how I fixed it. You would approve! Maybe a quick email to show you photos. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Anita

Doré how a visit to your home soothes the edge off an uneasy world. A dwelling of peace, of love and creative brilliance. I hold peace in my heart with every beat of my existence . . . I wish everyone could experience how serene and beautiful your home is and maybe just maybe they will hold a view of how peaceful looks and let it enter their hearts. I am of course referring to the violence in foreign lands.
Loving the little changes in Hannah's room and I noticed a few new Burlap Luxe beauties. Stunning my friend. A room to dream in, the bed is art, how I adore that bed.
I have a 4 candle floor candelabra in our LR. Mine is now vintage since John and I purchased it from an art gallery 34 years ago to mark a wedding anniversary. All winter every evening we burn candles in it with no fear of Max or Simon causing a mishap because it's high enough. Mine is a handcrafted on the side of modern piece ... yours I just nearly passed out in excitement over. OMGosh it is magnificent! What a find that as I know has become a treasured piece that makes your heart sing!
Wishing you, Hannah and Pia Bleu (she's 1 now?) a blissful weekend.
Sending love XOXO,
Vera

Dearest Dore,
I don't know how I managed to miss this beautiful post..
Hannah's room is so comforting.
Your gentle soul is apparent in every room... I love the ironwork.

Thank you so much for visiting Dexter, and leaving such a kind comment.. You know, I was going through my keepsake box the other day and came across your sweet note you had sent along with the wool you gifted me.. As I re-read the note, it just warmed my heart. The kindness you have shown me makes my heart happy.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend dear friend.
blessings,
Penny
