A Jem moment for our AWESOME chandelier that we scored at a kings day sidewalk sale.
I took all of the crystals off and soaked them in baking soda and vinegar.
After they had soaked awhile I began shining them up and re hanging them.
I didn’t get very far before I had supper to prepare but once supper was finished we had a group chandelier rebuilding party 😋
Shout out to Aunty and Uncle for all the polishing and wire bending sweat they put into our light during their vacation time 😉👌🏻✨
And a shout out to the Husbter so he doesn’t feel left out 😉
Plus… He did do all the crystal hanging and making sure it was precisely done where I would have said it was good enough and part of ‘the look’ 😋
😍 I couldn’t love it any more and for 10€ it truly feels like we found a treasure and now it also has fun memories attached to it ✨💕
Now we had to decide where to store it until we actually need it 😜
The process 😏👐🏻✨💦⌛️🔧
Bare bottomed chandelier
The team 👫👫
You just don’t see me cause I had to supervise 😉
Hello humans 😊
This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;)
I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw.
(Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.)
June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of.
Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister.
Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by.
I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada.
Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home.
But Home is not where I'll be for some time.
My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe.
Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months.
The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊

Love the chandelier Jess. You are so creative.
Thanks! But it wasn’t so much creative as just cleaning it 😉
