    So incredibly creative and unique. I absolutely adore this! Love it! So long as they didn't serve green eggs and ham – lol.

    I have that exact same chandelier, would you please tell my husband that it's awesome and we should put it up and it will totally be worth resetting the clocks after we turn off the electricity and that, no, it doesn't look an old lady light??? Thanks.
