How's your weekend been friends?
In just four more days it's Christmas eve!
Last night my whole family went to a party together.
It was so much fun.
Especially when the 80 year old Grandma there nabbed the
Craftsman screwdrivers when we all played dirty Santa.
Every guy there was a real man's man ... who mechanics and loves tools etc...
and lo and behold the Grandma got the Craftsman tools. lol
She reeeeally wanted them too!
It was good food, good company, and made some new memories.
So today's prompt is glitter...
Glitter to me is ... -well... it's like
Craftsman or SnapOn to my guys.
A tool of the trade.
Plus it sparkles...so I like it! Alot!
Glitter takes me back to Valentines day... and making that special box to hold your precious valentines. There is no such thing as too much glitter in my book.
Surprisingly enough; the deer up above was glittered just today.
Think I'll put a couple gluedots on him and just stick him to the wall near the
table in this art porch.
When I first discovered mixed media art,
I went nuts for
German glass glitter.
Alot of the German glitter I bought on Ebay, has a very vintage
patina to the shimmer.
I started shaking it on everything.
Having a fondness for vintage shakers and bottles;
the two just went together like
peanut butter n jelly or
No matter if lids are a little rusty or
It just adds to the charm.
Here are a few little bottles of new glitter.
I haven't used the Martha Stewart ones much but the Ranger Stickles
is awesome. No tellin how many bottles of it I've went through in the past.
Last but not least is one of my most favorite:
A vintage jar of glitter. Can't remember anymore where I found it?
But it's such a pretty silver.
Digging through boxes of vintage craft supplies in thrift shops is so much fun.
You never know what you might find.
Bakelite buttons, cards of mop buttons, sequins,
I've even found really cool olde hatpins,
Tomato pin cushions too - which is another thing I've collected over the years,
But glitter I see pretty often.
It's kind of hard to resist.
It's like diamonds... but you know... for a quarter.
time to get busy.
There are little cakes to bake in jars today...
How will you be spending your afternoon?
