Glitterbug!

So, like that cottonheadedninnymuggins, that I
am...I went to Cost Plus last Monday, thinking
I would find some deals on glass ornaments
(that I need like another nose!)




Alas, nada!
Duh!
I'm sure it all went on sale Dec. 15th!
Anywho, I did see this Eiffel Tower though
and it made me say...hmmmm....




Now I am not into French things or rusty things
but I have seen those vintage looking, glittery
towers that cost a fortune, so.....




I painted & poured...



And voila! Oooh la la! And woohoo oui!!!



I LOVE how it turned out!
A little something shiny & bright
to start the New Year!
And I'm sure Bee will like it too,
she better...it's going to go live with
her!


Stop over at Becca's for more
SHOW AND TELL WEDNESDAY

  4. SEE! I told you...
    you and your glitter make everything prettier! I have made the command decision that if something stands still long enough in this house, it will be COVERED! LOL!
    You know that saying, "I was going to take over the world, but I got distracted by something sparkly!"
    That's my new motto!!! :)

  8. Oh my, love the glitter. My favorite thing to transform things with is spray paint...glitter may just edge it out as my new favorite transformation tool. I will now be on the lookout for interesting things to glitter. Thanks for the inspiration.
