There’s nothing like a bit of antique mirror, here used in a Moravian star ceiling fixture, to add a spark of low level lustre and festivity. The origin of the Moravian star is ages old and harkens back to the star which, according to the Biblical legend, led the shepherds and wise men to the manger in Bethlehem where Jesus was born. These days the star is used more for its decorative impact. I decided to place this one on a painted pedestal which imbued its setting with instant Rustic Chic star power.
