Show and Tell Monday ... Even with all of this crazy weather we have been having here in CT, I really enjoy this time of year. January is trade show time and I just LOVE to go to the shows. Then, a few weeks later, the goodies start arriving. It's like Christmas all over again. Below I posted a few picks of some fun vintage inspired boxes and birds from Bethany Lowe. The post below that are picks of some gorgeous chandeliers I found in Atlanta. Some are electric, some are candles and if I do say so myself, they are just beautiful! I have a few hanging in my house. Now, with this crazy weather of too much snow, then rain, sleet, wind, cold again so ice, etc, it has been a little hard for me to work on my painting. I have a heated garage converted to studio but the sanding and washing needs to be done outside. Many times I have turned our driveway into an ice skating rink much to my family's chagrin! If finally warmed up to the 40's this weekend so I was a sanding/washing maniac. Soon I will have some furniture done to show you but for today, just this one cute little table. Happy Monday ... I'm off to visit everyone else.
(chandeliers are listed on my site, new items here will be listed today)

My "elf" has had problems with this weather also, and she has a heated space also. Sounds like your trips were more productive than mine...the Phila Gift Show was blah...and the catalogs from the companies show at NYC were not thrilling either...
