Sparkle Sparkle

entry

What was so wrong with the era of bedazzling? I love sparkle, don’t you?

The 80’s and early 90’s were great for sparkle lovers.

If I couldn’t find enough t-shirts jazzed up enough to meet my standard of more is more , I’d heat up my hot glue gun and

embellish

it myself.

What was I thinking? I know that jewels and glitter weren’t enough. I then added the amazing architectural fashion element of…

the shoulder pad.

Goal:  to bring the eye up…

And so logically, in recent years- when I found large Venetian glass mirrors at a very reasonable price, I went for it.

Once (above- in the entry).

Twice (below- above the tub, against a chocolate colored wall).

And a third time in the study (below).

     Baby sparkle works for me too.

                  Then of course I can’t resist chandeliers.

                 And finally, I am always looking for an occasion to wear rhinestone earrings- work? the grocery store? working in the yard?

                                      Why not?

Very, very pretty mirrors. I have one in my up-stairs hallway. Found two less-than-perfect ones at a garage sale and was able to make one from the various pieces. Looks vintage and shabby but still pretty.

Great post Laura, I too love venetian mirrors. If you look at the top of my blog, there is a picture of wall in my master bedroom - I did a wallscape of venetian mirrors I picked up at Home Goods.

I'm seeing a trend in your blog as compared to my tastes...seems these oddities are shared by several other ladies and I'm not just weird after all...the love of mirrors, lamps, moving one thing to a differant place and feeling like I've redecorated, etc. Life is good.
