If I may, I'd like to share my story with you about a chandelier....
When I first discovered this chandelier in a retailer's catalog, I was drawn to it for it's elegant yet somewhat modern features. When I saw the price, I realized I needed to hold-out for a sale, a big sale. So I watched & watched, checked their website, even on days when they were offering 30% off, it still was not enough.
One day recently, I received an email note from Overstock.com advertising a sale and the items they featured in their pictorial was THAT chandelier. The one I've longed for. When I got around to checking their site the next day, it was already out-of-stock.
I should know better. Never hesitate on a great deal. The worse case would be to return it, right?
So I "tweeted" Overstock and kindly asked if they could check their inventory on this chandelier. And you know, they tweeted me right back. No sooner, did I hear back from them, they had more chandeliers in stock (7 to be exact). With my heart pounding fast, I logged onto their site and placed my order.
When I received a confirming email note with shipping details, I knew what I longed for was on it's way to our home.
And now this lovely chandelier hangs in the master bedroom, giving me something pretty to look at each time I doze off to sleep and when I awake each morning. It brings a smile to my face. Yes, lighting can do that to me. It completes me as it feeds my designing soul.
If you think this is a very dramatic way of expressing affection toward a chandelier, just give me a chance to go on about a set of linen guest towels with embroidered topiaries I recently came across. I can seriously obsess over the smallest of details.
