Feelin Cozy

We finally put up our chandelier in the dining room this weekend. It makes such a difference and really makes the room feel like a room. My husband said the house feels so cozy now, hence the title of this post! :) Having all sorts of fall candles burning throughout the house also added to the cozy factor, as well as when he came in from working and said that the house smells like fall. What woman doesn't want to hear that? :)

I wanted to take some pics with it lit up at nighttime, but they seem a little harsh, especially with no curtains yet.

I picked out a very simple traditional style, because I want to be able to add shades or wrap garland through it for different seasons. I had added some teardrop crystals to my old chandelier, that I kinda wish I had kept now, but hopefully I can find some more.

He are some decorating pieces that i have been playing around with. I picked up the red gerber daisies at the grocery store last week. I had the same ones in my girl's bouquets when we got married, and since our anniversary is coming up, it felt fun to have them. :) Also I have been having a little too much fun putting flowers in my milk bottles inside my old vintage tool box. I promise I will move on to other things! I also just bought these candle holders at Michael's and now I need to find someone with an old oak tree, so that I can fill them with acorns. The K is actually to add to our fall wreath, I have been seeing wreaths with letters on them all over pinterest. I'm just waiting for hubby to paint it a nice oil rubbed bronze for me.

Another fun thing is that we finally have our light for over our sink! Which is so nice to have any also adds to the cozy factor. :) I just put some Indian corn and gourds together on the window sill, and added some cute pumpkins with bible verses on them, that a prayer partner had given me several years ago.

Hope you are all having a lovely day!!
