Love That Sparkle!

Tales from an O.C. Cottage has asked us to post our Sparkle this week! How fun! I absolutely love crystals and dripping chandeliers!

I have two lamps - one table top size, one very little one - that match. They were my first lamps with beaded shades. Thus began a new obsession.




My next addition was this shade - I spent HOURS stringing these beads myself and adding them to a lamp I already had. Now you can find beaded trim everywhere to add to just about anything you can imagine!

When I brought my feather lamp home my family looked at me like I had lost my mind! This is one of my favorite pieces in my house!

Recently I bought this lamp for $7 at Gordman's. I came home and ripped the fabric off the lampshade, and hung some of my vintage jewelry on it. It sits on top of my kitchen cabinets - a nightlight for my middle-of-the-night kitchen raids.

My newest danglies are on a hanging candle holder that my sister gave me for my birthday - I absolutely love this!

Thanks for visiting. And have a sparkly day!
