New Chandelier Shades

I got a new chandelier last year and hubby didn't think it would go in our little humble home (or cottage as I affectionately call it) when I bought it. Little do men know!! Anyway, after putting it up and adding my decorations he finally said it looked beautiful in there - without me even asking what he thought! So I've been trying to find just he right shades for them. I finally did on Bertie's website. They just arrived this morning and I put them on and WOW do they make a difference in the room. They have little roses, lace and beads, but what makes them truly unique is that they are made from vintage wedding gowns. Oh, my are they stunning!! It is very difficult to get good pictures in this room at this time of day (morning) but you get the idea. Thank you so much, Bertie!! I truly do love them.
