Hanging over our dining table is a turned wooden candlebra gifted to me from my aunt and uncle. My grandfather made this out of the wood from the apple tree I used to climb as a little girl. Special? Absolutely.
It is a combination of turned apple wood and copper tubing.
We light the candles every evening with dinner during the darker seasons. Yes, it is homey and romantic.
I see on the blogs all the solutions for the dining room lighting and know I have the best solution of all - a beautiful candelabra made by my grampa with a story. Things like this help make a house a home!
