All Things Glitter

I am a fan of all things that glitter.  It’s just a fact.  And at Christmastime?  This love for glitter is effectively doubled, my friends.  My husband may even argue that it’s tripled (lucky him, I know!).  So the other day when I was perusing Target and all of the lovely Christmas decor they have out right about now, I stumbled upon a cute little 2-pack of flat ornaments that I immediately fancied.  They were gold, glittery, and snowflake-y.  (And by this point we all know that I have a love affair with gold decor, right?)  Fun, yes?  I bought three packs of the ornaments — $4 all said and done.

Most years at Christmastime, my mother-in-law decorates the chandelier above the dining room table with ornaments — and I have always loved what a sweet touch that was.  (Maybe I can snap a picture of this for you all if she has it up again this year!).

So.  Above my desk in my office area of our apartment, I have a perty Chandelier, which we bought from Ikea.

There she is!  I love her, and I felt like she needed to feel gussied up for Christmas, too.  So…


Fun, yes?  :-)  Now all I’ve gotta worry about is hitting my head when I stand up from my chair!  But if that’s the price I’ve got to pay for Little Miss Chandy to look as sweet as she does right now, I’ll take it!  :-)

What else would be fun to hang on a chandelier?  You could do candy canes, for sure.  More crystal ornaments would look beautiful, I bet, if you’ve got a crystal chandy already.  Maybe even some beads strung up in there would look nice.  Ideas?


Linking up!

    Maybe Icicles? Beads? Christmas Bulbs? All colors, or just gold. Little stockings? Wow, this is fun!! Ohh the possibilities! I wonder what it would look like on my chandelier?? :)
