Reflect Sparkle Illuminate

A Most Amazing Chandelier
captured my attention in a shop this week
The bronzy-pinkish crystals were fabulous!

This one was in an antique mall
Those purple crystals! Gasp!

-
And in another high-end antique shop
this huge one with PINK crystals really made my eyes light up!

A mere $25,000, should you be interested.

These lovely cloche's were in a shop. So sparkly!
... They sat upon a mirrored table, everything was so reflective...

This seashell filled crystal bowl sits upon my desk
-
The other morning as I was leaving the room
I looked back and the crystals were sparkling
so wondrously from the morning light, I had to grab my camera.

What could be more summery in accessories
than aqua, turquoise and sea green beads
with a golden rhinestone-studded
S T A R F I S H
as a necklace?

Ahhhhhhh....you wonderful friend, you. I leave this borrowed thought from the marvelous ANAÏS NIN:

"Each friend represents a world in us a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."

I have been born again....

Oh, Violet, such a tantalizing post!! I am smitten with chandeliers, and all the more so after my stay at the chateau! You would have truly loved those! Thank you so much for your sweet visit today. I was planning to come here after lunch. Or should I say "petite dejeuner?"
