Welcome back my dears...
I am sorry to be missing so long.
Almost two weeks since I have shared a post!
Been busy with back to school and HS Girls Golf season.
Today I am sharing a bit of the bling and new things in the kitchen.
I am such an EBay shopper...
I just love how many things you can find there.
So a few weeks ago I got on an hanging crystals kick and bought them by the buckets.
Well, not quite... but more than enough to add a good bit of bling here!
So I added bling to my sweet birdcage... and a few more flowers too.
I also added this wonderful cabinet door above the pie-pan safe.
It added some height and interest.
It also matches the cabinets in my kitchen.
A local flea market has these panels for $2 all the time. I thought about painting it... but like the natural wood for now.
I am still loving the ironstone pottery in the kitchen displays.
The light and bright colors are so much fun to play with.
And love the sweet pastel colors against my new wallpaper.
Even the high chair has some new sparkle.
I love the new look, but still on the search for a new smaller table and chairs.
I added some brighter cottage colors to the homemade wreath.
And a sweet crystal lamp for interest.
I love these little bits of bling. Just look on EBay under "hanging glass crystals". They were about $4 for 10 and look for free shipping. Most came from China and took about 2 weeks to arrive. I made sure the ones I chose were all glass, not plastic. I have bought real antique crystals here locally from $1 to $3 each, so this is much cheaper! I was really pleased with all the ones I chose.
My favorite new DIY project is this simple faux chandelier.
It is a vintage lampshade and some of my new pink crystals. I even added some to my kitchen curtain too! I have more to show you... and I am already thinking of how I can use them in my Christmas decor. Best thing is... they are just hanging and I can move them around and change them whenever I like. Have fun and add some sparkle at your house too!
