Mixing Silver & Gold & A Giveaway

I love glitz and glitter and anything that shines, so I really can't limit myself to just gold or silver.  I love them both.  I especially love them mixed together.

This year for the holidays I am going with a lot of glitz.  I found a box in the garage with a mirror ball that I forgot I had from years ago, so great time to pull it out and use it in my decor.


It makes a great addition to my buffet to go with my fabulous silver and gold family tree.




I am already using small mirror balls on the tray and a really sparkly beaded and sequin acorn.

Silver, gold, crystal drops, sparkle and shine.  What could be better.

The candles give off such a fabulous glow.


The lamp on the buffet is gold, my huge mirror over the sofa is gold and so is the chandy in the dining area.  Throw in a few assorted gold and silver accessories and they all live happily together.


Ok, now for some glitzy shine for one of you.  
Remember when I bought the black with gold foil lined shades for my chandy --

Well, it didn't work out for me, but rather than take them to Goodwill, I thought maybe one of you might want them.  Six gorgeous shades that measure 51/2 inches tall and 6 inches across the bottom.

I can't wait to ship a little sparkle off to one of you.  Just follow the instructions on the entry form below.

Holiday Shopping

I have been doing a little Holiday shopping so I am not rushing at the last minute.  One of my favorite places is Novica, and I am thrilled to be a contributor for them.  I always find such unique gifts and love reading about the artists that create them.

I loved the look of this fabulous shawl and thought it would be perfect for a friend for the Holiday season.

A florid dance emerges from the luxurious silk textures of this elegant Banarasi shawl. By Madhu Agrawal, the bright orange shawl with olive green details is woven on a jacquard loom resulting in an intricate floral and paisley brocade in black. 

    I always love to read about each of the artist and how they create their works of art.  Madhu shares a little about her city and the history of her silk creations.

This piece did not disappoint when it arrived.  Just look at those gorgeous colors and the pattern is exquisite.



I also fell in love with this gorgeous necklace.  I havn't seen a crocheted necklace before.

Inspiring in warm hues, this crocheted necklace is by Thailand's Chuleekorn. For this choker she combines enhanced jasper and aventurine with rutilated quartz and brass beads. The necklace can be adjusted to the desired length.

This gorgeous piece was created by -

When it arrived, it was even more stunning than the picture.

 The detail with all the beads and gemstones is truly gorgeous.  I think this is a gift that a special person will love.


If you are looking for something special and unique for that special and unique person, give Novica a try.  I am sure you will find just the perfect gift.

Gold & More Gold - Polka Dots and Chevrons

I know, I know, I need to stop, but this is just so much fun and I love it.  I have shown you how I transformed a plain buffet into my desk area here, here and here.

I am still into gold and it just seems that I keep finding all kinds of fun things that I just have to have.

Magazine Glamour Shot

I was trying on several things the other day putting together a Holiday outfit.  I walked around the house making sure each piece felt really comfortable and was versatile enough to maybe create a couple of different looks.  I was also playing with yards of pearls and different ways to drape a scarf.

The doorbell rang, so I kicked off the shoes, and layed the scarf, pearls and purse down on the ottoman before I answered the door.  When I came back to pick everything up it suddenly struck me that this looked like one of those Magazine Glamour Shots you find in Vogue.
