snowy chandelier

My version of indoor snow.

I was inspired a couple of months ago by this little packet at one of the craft chain stores, and, after these bowls hung around our dining room a little too long, it's snowing all day long.

It turned out really delicate and lovely.

how to: I sandwiched blue cotton thread between 2 matching sequin/spangles with a q-tip dab of craft glue. I was thinking about adding little origami doves, but in the end decided they should have their own garland. Eventually.

**the walls are all white because we're renting. My husband is itchy to paint, but I have to admit it: I love the crisp look of the walls all white, especially in this photo. What do you think? Too passe?

Ooooh. Pretty. I bet it looks even better in person. I love Christmas decor.

that really is pretty! I love how it catches the light and glistens.
