I HAVE THIS!!!

I wish I knew where I got this pic!!  (I'll give you photo credit it's yours)  Anyhoo, back in October, I met up with some dealers who 'pick' and allow me to then 'pick' from their goods.  Well, I fell in love with a bunch of industrial whisks, of all things!  (I did fall in love with carved wooden wings, and a copper shade on a lovely lamp - so give me a little credit.)
But these whisks! My wheels were turning - get two small ones and make into lamps? or hanging pendants? or wall mounted lamps?  Get a big one and make it a ceiling light? Gather a few different sizes and just GO CRAZY?!
OK, OK, I settled on a big one and slowed the wheels in my brain - I will use this in my kitchen - over my table. Yes this is what I will do. Oh my goodness! look at those columns! and those turtle shells!  CaLm dOwN I will say the pickers got a kick out of my enthusiasm and loved all the cash I plopped down on many many great items!
I still do not have the light in place over my table - I want to re-do in my kitchen, but I misplaced that pocket change of about $120 thousand that it would cost me to do it exactly the way I need, dream, would like to.

Here is my whisk




And here is a sample of what it looks like in this kitchen...keep in mind, my kitchen doesn't resemble this pic, but I think one day I can pull off  'my' look and use the whisk...and maybe it will only cost $1,200 dollars. Right! the fridge alone (that I dream of) is way more than that! then there is the - ok, I'll stop dreaming in public...
whisk light

I can attest to her "picking" enthusiasm and creativity as an innocent participant/witness on several treasure hunts. That's a fun piece. Loved it then, love it now.
