Inspired by Vintage Bella

As if I needed as excuse to put glitter on
anything else....I have practically glittered
everything I own...even my cats are
suspiciously sparkly! (Shhhhhhhhh...they
don't know that they aren't supposed to be!)
Then one day, while visiting

(aka Andrea, who is hardly "vintage", but is
quite "bella") I saw what she had been
up to...and it was glittery good!!!!!!
She had bedazzled a picture frame!!!! Why
had I never thought of that???? (Probably
because even while glittering the smallest of
objects, I make quite the mess, I never had
the nerve to tackle something large). But her
frame was so gorgeous, I had to take the risk...
and all I can say is WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!
I LOVE GLITTER (12 step program??????????)

I found these goodies while shopping in my garage
again....the small frames were little ornaments
with a holly sprig on top & a tassel below...they
were hastily removed!

They look a lot better this way!!!!!!!!

Those sparkles are real, not Photoshopped!!!!
(And that would be because I still have not
figured Photoshop out!)

And, of course, I had to do some more shells too...
I am only human after all!

And what flower could resist being potted
in this jewel?????! :)

Then I just went plain nuts and got out the glue
pen !!!! I think I will be making more plates like

This is just more fun than a person should have
with sharp and shiny shards of glass!!!!!!!!!!!!


BTW, Kelly Maria @

  1. Wow I love those frames! I might just go and retrieve those frames I put out for the garage sale, I think I have found something much nicer to do this evening!!
    I also adore those shells...hmm I think my children will have to follow the glitter trail to find me for the next couple of days!!!
