CHRISTMAS WISH'IN

 I have been such a terrible blogger as of late.......it is such a busy time of year, and I have only been able to manage quick peeks at my favorite blogs.  I love all the Christmas inspiration out there in blog land, and have been busy with some Christmas projects of my own (in between all the mom and work stuff).


One of my favorite things to do as the holidays approach is to glitter absolutely anything and everything that I can get my hands on!!!!!!!  This candle holder was $3.00 at the thrift store and the mirrored tray was just a little bit more.  I painted them with decoupage medium and then sprinkled on the glitter.....

I added little knob feet to this tray.



So you see.....my house (and me) are absolutely covered in glitter!!!
Happy day!

Wow, I'm impressed. I had no idea that glitter could make dollar store items look like a million!
Your decorations look beautiful.

I'm really getting into glitter, too. It looks gorgeous, and I love the sweet little glass knobs used as feet.
Have a great Sunday,
