A Little More Sparkly

I started glittering old light bulbs here at the end of November.  The glitter I used was just craft store glitter, but after much coercing, I convinced myself to use some of my authentic vintage glitter.

I'm not kidding, I'd much rather collect vintage supplies sometimes than use them, because then you see, you don't have them.  Sometimes potential is so much more...(does that make sense to anyone else?)

I bought these bottles of glitter at an auction awhile back and the colors are so perfect.  They were from Editha's craft supplies.  I think I would have liked Editha, I certainly liked all of her supplies I came home with!

So glad I used the vintage glitter!!!

Kids have been sick here and it's been stressful...

We are still trying to "get ready"  but the real meaning of the season is not lost, but found even in the midst of the stress.  Keeping my eyes on the star.

Peace to all of you.

The magic of Christmas, Florabella overlays, and glitter light bulb garland set a festive mood!


  1. I know EXACTLY what you mean about not wanting to use up vintage supplies. I am forcing myself to use mine.
    Your light bulbs are so very pretty.
    I hope everyone soon feels better. Christmas comes "ready or not" and having your heart ready is more meaningful than the other stuff.

  2. Those are gorgeous!

    Merry Christmas.

  3. It makes perfect sense to me. Perfect. ;-D

    I hope all of your family is on their way to feeling better for Christmas. You are ALL in my prayers always.

    And the bulbs?! FANTASTIC!!!
