Is "SPARKLE" a decorating style?
~ Because I think it's mine ~

Perfume bottles on a mirrored tray

Crystals Crowns and Silver

Glisten   Gleam   Glow

Reflect   Twinkle   Illuminate

Glitter   Shimmer

Glimmer  and  Glow

Dazzle  and  Shine
(Thank you Anita for sending me the lovely gift of this
rhinestone crown embellished with aqua tulle!!!)

... More Sparkle ....

A Glittered Angel
Highlights and Shadows and Sparkle

Are you a lover of sparkle?
Does glitter make your heart sing?
What is it about LIGHT that sparks hope in our souls?
The very first words whispered ~ or shouted with joy ~
by God over our world were these:
~ "Let There Be Light" ~
Genesis 1:3
(And it was GOOD)

... let it sparkle on in our homes and lives ...
(... and on our clothes and jewelry and art and hopefully on this weekend! )

Please come back next weekend for more studio photos
as I participate in the "Where Bloggers Create" link party
hosted by Karen Valentine.

Oh dearest, HERE I AM AGAIN and only to see that you visited my HOME again!!!! THAT CHANDELIER in Ruben's office is from a SALVAGE SHOP! We have many of them here in The Twin Cities. They are warehouses of vintage/antique parts of old buildings and houses. That is an old chandy and it is indeed perfect to give that CASTLE EFFECT! You see these type of chandies in the homes around here for there are many TUDOR homes in the Cities. LOVE IT! Oh you would scream to see the lovely homes here.

I JUST LOVE THIS POST because the sparkle is just exquisite with a message that just sends joy in every part of me...well my sister in glitter, what is your goal for the day? I am letting today slide by and I am enjoying the birds singing in the trees...I would love to set out one of my glitter birds on a sweet little crystal cup such as yours...sister birds!!!! You and me, THE MAGPIE TWINS!!!

Love the sparklies!! And the beautiful words. Reminds me of the days when I made worship banners. Lots & lots of shiny, beautiful elements were used to depict the majestic light of the Lord! ~MG

Hi Violet, I had to come racing over here from Anita's blog to tell you how very sweet that fairy under the cloche is that you made for her! I love cloches, don't you? And your beautiful perfume bottles remind me of my mom's feminine. I used to buy her one in an antique store every year for her birthday.
And I especially love "Let there be Light! It was GOOD!
Come visit me. We have a Father in common!
