Sparkling crystal


I have always loved crystal. Something about the way the light makes it sparkle.

Whenever I see crystal baubles in antique shops or flea markets I will usually pick a few up and bring them home with me.

Here's an idea for you if you have one of those ...umhum...ugly overhead light fixtures on your ceiling. Add some crystals! The photo below is taken of the ceiling light in our bedroom. I've used an assortment of crystals and will add more as I get them. Gives it the look of a chandelier.

I love crystal too...like you said, there is just something so wonderful about the way it catches light. I even have a crystal chandelier outside on one of my decks. We put it together out of s cast-off pieces...fun.

I'm with you on these. I love the sparkle and glitter. And, I love the little prisms they create around a room.
