Yesterday I told you that I had a bad case of the "I wants"...well to be honest my spending lately feels like it's out of control. I'm not going too crazy but I have been buying a lot of little things. I've shown you before these crystal candlesticks that were a gift from my brother when I was in my twenties (pictured above.) I bought these bobeches to dress them up. They are actually acrylic but they look like crystal. The really add a lot of bling to the candlesticks. They just sit on top of the candlestick. I just love shiny crystal things lately. The other candlesticks were thrift store purchases awhile ago.
EDITED TO ADD: I bought these bobeches at a store in California called The Eclectic Touch which is located in the Willow Glen area of San Jose. I did a Google search and found some on eBay (click here)
Sorry for the blurry photos. I was going to retake some new photos last night and forgot to do it!
I also bought this Christmas ornament. It looks much better than it showing up in this photo. It has glitter which you can't even see.
I've also been going crazy buying bulbs to force indoors. I've planted two amaryllis, a bunch of paperwhites and some hyacinths. I have some more amaryllis to plant this weekend. My home should be in full bloom around Christmas! I'm going to buy more bulbs to force indoors for after Christmas. In January I'm so ready for Spring so it's nice to see things blooming indoors.
