I Love Me Some Glitter!

I love bling. Glitter. Shiny things.

With my 40% or 50% off coupons in hand, I quite often head off to Michaels to purchase some Martha Stewart Glitter. At $4.99 minus the coupon, it is a deal. And, the glitter is great quality.

I am such an order freak that I have found myself organizing the oftentimes messy display of Martha Stewart Glitter. No glitter should be so poorly displayed :)

After finding metal heart ornaments that had these tacky teddy bears attached, I thought they needed some glitter. These ornaments were leftover from my mom's days as an Avon Lady. That is a whole other blog post, or several posts.

I yanked the teddy bears off the hearts with no malice really and mixed some glue and water as the base for applying the glitter. You can see one of the teddy bears in my book page wreath in my banner.

I have hung them from our banister and they look very glittery.

Who knows - maybe someday I will get myself some bling that is about say . . . 2 carats. If not, I will just have to buy it myself!

Oh glitter, I have a love hate relationship with it. I love it on things, I hate sweeping it up and finding it permenently attached to my face. Your hearts are beautiful, and how great that you gave something a new life. Have a great week and stay warm.

MS's glitter is so pretty. They totally up'd the anty on your hearts. Her glitter colors are enough to inspire redoing a whole room. And I love the quote at the bottom. How sweet.
