insert clapping and dancing here...

So I need to ask... on Wednesday did any of you hear a very shrill, loud squeal followed by crazy clapping and maybe a little vibrating under you feet from the world famous happy dance?

cuz, that's what happened when I found this beauty at the local GW...

are you ready?

well are you?

o.k. I was soooooo excited to show it to you, I didn't even clean it up before I took the pictures!

or rehang all of the crystals that are in weird places and just haphazardly hanging off of it

you understand, right?

It's been a couple of crazy days around here and so no time to clean it, because I was cleaning a 12 year olds bedroom, and we all know what kind of time that takes!  To be fair, Hannah cleaned her room, but then I CLEANED her room!
and then I had to work, but I knew you'd want to see it!

  I digress, is that not a great find?  I have not shared a great find in a really long time, and well I knew you'd be happy for me!

now where should it go? hmmmmmmm

Have a fabulous weekend!
Will you be treasure hunting?

  1. I can NOT believe you found that at Goodwill! That has to be the FIND of the century! I have an 11 year old Hannah and I know exactly what you mean....I have to re-clean after she cleans too! Can't wait to see where you hang the chandelier! Have a great weekend!

  2. OMG That was the best of finds...My heart would have stopped!


  3. I can't believe you found that beauty at the GW!!!! I never find anything that awesome!!! Lucky girl! karen...

  4. Did you see me click my heels together twice? Now did ya? :D


  5. Ooh la la!! This is a wonderful chandelier and find!!


  6. I wondered what that noise was! You're starting the year off right! Lucky duck! I don't know about you, but I almost never run up on a good chandelier like that except in shops or priced way to high at the sales.

  7. Wow-wee!! That is one awesome find!! I would be screaming and jumping for joy too!
    So lovely!
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Nothing compares to that at our GW's. Amazing find!

  9. You have been busy! Your rabbit's the best! Great chandelier! Haven't found anything yet that has been "happy dance" worthy, just that involuntary suck in of air that embarrasses you in front of anyone close enough to hear.

  10. You definitely get the award for the best find of the week at a GW!! That chandelier is awesome and I want to see pictures when it finds it's new home.
    I would have been squealing too (and knocking over anyone in my way) if I saw that at a thrift store.
    Have a great weekend.

  11. Tell me...are you doing the Tango or Mambo happy dance, 'cause I'm too dazzled by her beauty to see!

  12. I wondered what that squeal was when I heard it.

    That is beautifully wonderful!

  13. That is one incredible find :) I am looking forward to seeing the finished results...enjoy your weekend.


  14. That has to be the GW find of the is fabulous. Tell us where you decided to put it.

  15. OH scored...great find, Theresa! Can't wait to see what you do with it!

  16. SQUEAL with delight! I'm so happy for you. And thank you for not sharing the price with us as we'd want to croak!!! LOL! will be wonderful wherever you put it,

  17. Wow, congratulations! That's a great find, especially for a Goodwill. It makes me want to get out there and shop today instead of take pictures and list things on Etsy. Hmmmm.....

  18. WOW! I was doing the happy dance for you when I saw that chandy. If I saw that at my GW, they'd have to pick me up off the floor! Where is it going?

  19. I do the same thing when I find something I can't live without! Great find! Can't wait to see what it looks like hanging up!

  20. First off, I want to thank you for all your sweet comments you leave me and I'm really trying to make more timeto return them.

    Secondly, no way you found this beauty at the GW. I've never seen anything remotely this fabulous at my local stores. Actually, lately there isn't anything good and I'm not even stopping in as often as I used to. They are listing anything old online in an auction:(

    Great find! I'm sure you'll findthe perfect place for it.


  21. OH that was the noise I heard:)))
    I'd be going crazy too if I found that at our GW. Nothing fabulous there .....or at least when I've been.
    It could go anywhere. Can't wait to see where you place it.

  22. Oh my goodness Theresa, what a great find! I would have been going nuts too!
    I thought it was an earthquake....

  23. What a absolutely gorgeous chandelier, and how wonderful to find it at the GW.... one time I found 2 alabaster lamps at the GW, I was doing a happy dance too! Congrats on such a great find!!!
    Blessings~~~ Daphne

  24. Oh yes! We understand!!!!
    Hugs, Diane

  25. AMAZING!!! It gives me hope for our Goodwill!!!

  27. That's a very lovely crystal chandelier!

  28. Love it, and I toally understand. I could hear a big Yippee all the way over here. (winds out of the east that day...)

    Have a WONDERFUL birthday! I hope you are pampered all day long. And I am heading out to Walmart to get me some towels to put into a jar over here. I am always on the lookout for ulitarion things to store in jars, and I am not digging the paper towel thing anymore.


Thank you so much for visiting me here at The Old White House, your comments make my day! ~ Theresa xoxo
