Crystals and Candelabras

The sparkle of crystal cannot be overrated. And crystal candelabras are things of beauty, timeless and elegant, always.

Every day at a certain time of sundown, the light comes in straight through the window and lights up everything but first it hits the candelabra I have in the window. It always strikes me as sublime.


































Anything made with crystals are wonderful. This is my Winter Wonderland Portal




























Here I have strands of crystals hanging on the tulle in my bedroom window, and the light hits them and makes......








 these rainbow prisms.....all over the walls, and the wind blows the curtains and these little rainbows dance their light.

 One can add them to many things to achieve sparkle and moving light.


















Crystal Chandeliers can be enhanced with flowers or icicles for more effects.




But I think every woman needs sparkly things around her.

  2. Oh happy sigh.......

    And delightful ideas.....

    Crystals and tulle, on a window, for instance.

    -sigh- I don't have a single chandelier. -sigh- And hardly any crystal, to catch the light.

    Nothing like the present, to rectify this sad condition. Thank you.

  3. Sublime is the perfect descriptive word for your wonderful crystals. I love them too. Your winter wonderland portal is heavenly, and your sweet bed is so pretty with the pink pillows and soft linens and the crystals making little lights on the walls...

About Me

"Where better to care for the soul than in the details of our daily lives?....The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought... An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul, to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination where we find value, love and union with the world around us. As mystics of many religions have taught, that sense of rapturous union can give a sense of fulfillment that makes life purposeful and vibrant." ~ Thomas Moore.
