Christmas 2011, I love Getzan Chandeliers

Hello everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderfull Christmas. As always I received both side on the 24th. I cooked/ ate all day and we had a wonderful time. This year was even better because we finally had a baby in the house. My sister Marilena had Alina in April. She's the most vivacious medium girl you've ever seen...I say medium because I refuse to refer to a 23 pound 8 month old as little!

 Once again, I was spoiled rotten this year. As always Jo and both sides of our family got together to get my presents. I am so happy to say, I have the first chandeliers for Dewell Manor!

The 3 chandeliers are called "Charleston" from, as well as the pans. The 2 antique Bronze finish fixtures and sconces are for the Great Room, and the gold one with the extra long chain will hang over the staircase. All the chandeliers I have chosen for Dewell Manor are from the Getzans. What I love about their chandeliers is the detail and workmanship. The fixtures have a beautiful architectural quality to them that is exactly what I envisionned for an english Manor house. I love cascades of crystals as much, if not more, then anyone out there, but they would of looked out of place in many of the rooms of my project.

To the left of the pans is a Ballerina figure from Randall Zadar. The detail in his pieces is amazing! 

And Jo remembered these pieces I wanted and found them online. The cabinet is for the Gallery, and the chairs will go in the Dressing Room. He got BIG husband point this year...BIG!!!

Now that it's over I've been working on the Music Room, I hope to have it finished before I go back to work on Tuesday and will post the minute it's done.

Happy new year to everyone!



  1. Giac!!! What an incredible Christmas you had! I love all of those gifts!! The chair fabric is wonderful! Your little(medium) niece is so adorable!! She looks like she is full of personality too!!
    Happy New Year to you!

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful fun Christmas. Congratulations on all your fantastic gifts. Your niece is gorgeous. I bet she kept you all entertained lol. Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year.
    Hugs Maria

  3. Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful! (The Baby, the lights and the furniture!)
    Looks like you had a Great time, Giac! Can't wait to see the Music Room!
    Happy New Year!

  4. Hello Giac!
    First, what a sweet beautiful child your niece!
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving those kind words about my "Christmas Stuff".
    You must have been VERY good this year to receive all those wonderful things for Christmas.
    The new chandeliers will be great in Dewell Manor as well as the three new furniture pieces. I have long been an admirer of "Chinoiserie Painting" on furniture pieces.
    Those wing chairs I don't recognize and like a lot. I paricularly like the arm shape and the stretchers.
    Looking forward to seeing the music room!
    I will answer all the questions of your recent e-mail in a return e-mail to you. It was a pleasure to get to talk ,if just by e-mail, about all those things.
    Warm wishes to you and Jo!

  5. HOOO , le père noël t'a gâté cette année !!!
    Les lustres sont superbes , j'ai visité le lien de la boutique , il y a de très belles choses.
    Alina sera une grande fan de ta maison de poupées je suppose.
    Bonne année 2012 et le meilleur pour toi et ta famille

  6. Giac, I envy you so much. None in my family ever remembers that I love minis !!! I had lovely presents but no minis at all.
    Your niece is so sweety with her chubby cheecks, it surely is a joy to play with her but mind your manor when she will be able to walk.Best wishes, Rosanna

  7. She is just adorable! lucky you to have a lovely baby to enjoy over the holidays!

    As for your Christmas gifts! WOW!!! you hit the jackpot! I love them all. They are just perfect for your house.

  8. Hi Giac, she's SO cute, and not so small bless her. I chuckled when I read about the Medium.
    The chairs and cabinet are to die for. I agree with Ray in that I love the shape of them and the fabric is particularly pretty - Good job Jo. The chandeliers will make marvelous additions to Dewell Manor. I bet the electrics for that must present a minor headache, but have every confidence you'll have an answer for it.
    Season's wishes to you and your family,

  9. Giac, you sure were spoiled silly with all your wonderful gifts, you have a great family!!!!

    Love everything you got but the chandeliers are really special!!!!

    Have great "MINI" 2012!!!!!!

  10. Dear Giac, I apologize for the long run, as usual due to the pressing necessities of 1/1 life.
    I could see all the news of the manor, but the best news I think this so beautiful and nice girl :-)
    A big hug to all your beautiful family and the hope of a new year full of good things.

  11. Your niece is adorable, Giac. How funny that we both got light fixtures for Christmas! All your presents are going to look marvelous in Dewell Manor --can't wail to see them in place. Happy New Year!

  12. ¡¡Feliz Año Nuevo, Giac!! Espero que el próximo año sigamos pudiendo disfrutar de tu hermoso trabajo!! Los regalos son una auténtica delicia!! Se ve que este año has sido un chico muy, muy bueno!! Jajaj!! Alina, como siempre un encanto de criaturita!! Un abrazo enorme, enorme, enorme!!

  13. I bambini sono la ricchezza di una casa, e tua nipote è stupenda! Ma ci pensi che un giorno dovrai costrure una casetta delle bambole tutta per lei? Chissà, magari erediterà il tuo talento e la farete insieme!
    I lampadari sono meravigliosi, così tutti gli altri mobili.
    Auguro un 2012 splendido a te e alla tua famiglia,

  14. What beautiful gifts you received! Your little niece is so adorable. She looks like she would be a lot of fun to play with. I wish my granddaughters were young again. I love her little grin! It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas, Giac. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  15. absolutely lovely!
