Manly Chandeliers

I long for the day when I can have chandeliers in my home. They are so major in setting the tone in a room, and poor me, I am without. You may think manly chandeliers is an oxymoron, but check these out. Ok, so the antler one is a no brainer, but the other two are definitely striking a good balance between masculine and feminine. 

On another note, I need to make fun of the hubs for a minute. He somehow hurt his neck by sleeping on it wrong. He can't move it, he can't really do anything without a spasm. He's in a lot of pain, and you're probably thinking, "Why is this funny?" It's really not. It's just that I kind of get the giggles when I see him traipsing around the house like he's 95 years old, and then I smell the Icy Hot, and I just can't contain myself. It's not like back in the day when he used to get hurt playing lacrosse. That's legit. It's that ever since he turned the ripe old age of 34, he's been hurting himself in the weirdest ways. First there was the picking up of the weight/back injury, then the neck. The worst part is what is he going to do tomorrow at work if a patient codes or something? Do you really want someone who can hardly move trying to save your life? I have a sick sense of humor, and I'm realizing that as I write this. In my defense, I have been taking good care of him, and I only laugh behind his back.

  1. OK, the second image is so wonderful. In addition to the chandy, the transom over the doorway, the artwork, the modern wingbacks flanking the fireplace, the arch windows. It's all working for me!! M.

  2. Maybe he should anesthetize his neck. Doesn't he have access to that kind of thing?

    I love chandeliers too. I just got one for my guest room. Eeee!
