Musings on a Monday...

About a year or so ago, I was watching that movie "Julie & Julia." The one with Meryl Streep playing Julia Childs during her time in Paris and Amy Adams as a fan who starts a blog about her cookbook "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." It was a delightful little film and two things happened afterwards...
1. I wanted to move to France and become a chef.
2. I wanted to start a blog.
Well, the latter dream was obviously much more realistic than uprooting my life to France! So, here we are in bloggerville with this little lifestyle type whatever it is I do/write here. Not exactly sure how to classify it, but it's here and it's mine and it's fun. 
My point, and I do sort of have one, is that I wasn't sure when I started this where it would go or where I even wanted it to go. I simply wanted it. It has evolved a bit here and there. But, in my wildest dreams, I'd say that someday, SOMEDAY, I would love to have a Chandelierious "brand," whatever that might mean. A store filled with handpicked new and vintage items and custom refinished  furniture and decor? A line of home goods? An interior decorating company? 
Dream big, right?
Well, in the meantime, I am dabbling with the store idea here, online. Just for giggles, lets see what happens...
These "stores" are completely preliminary, basic and barebones as of yet. They are works in progress and possibly just experimental and temporary. So,let's just think of this a a sneak preview that you can actually order something from. 
Ok. Here's goes...
Be Chandelierious, the Boutique & Chandelierious Kids
Have fun looking! (And just remember, it's a work in me!)


  1. How cool. I like where this is going...I see big things for you in 2011.

  2. Thank you, Karley!
    I have to play around some ( a lot! ) more, but I thought, new year...why not just put it out there? What am I waiting for? :)
