Sunday Quilt Inspiration: G L I T T E R

I began this post on New Year's night.  I kept thinking that it was Sunday--the day had such a Sunday feel to it.  Of course, that feeling had me all turned around.  Then the fireworks on TV (halftime, maybe?) had me thinking of sparkles and here we are....glittered!

Gold Glitter Wedding Theme

One of the Betas at school called glitter the vomit of crafting.  I laughed at that because I know only too well how long glitter hangs around a classroom after a afternoon of painting glitter onto props.

burnt out lights, dipped in glitter! Would be cute to display in a glass bowl as a centerpiece for Christmas! :)

I'll admit, however, that I'd have not thought of glittering some of the things on this post!

Ceiling Fan Covers. $45.00, via Etsy ... why pay $45 bucks when you could mix Modge Podge with glitter & paint the blades yerself for a lot cheaper? That's what I would do. :)

Oh, and let's not forget edible glitter!

A little glitter sure does go a long way. I try to include it, specially when I am feeling a bit down.

Our weather has been holding up till today. Extremely icy this morning when we were driving our Christmas guests to the airport. Now it's set to get cold. Great time to stay in an quilt, or at least, that's my plan.

I love a bit of glitter! Wish I had occasions that would let me wear something like that dress.
