SPARKLE...FARKLE.....AND OTHER SHINEY THINGS
For those of us who grew up with SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE on the television...the above title should certainly bring back memories and a chuckle or two.
Remember the Farkle family...Fred Farkle..Fanny Farkle..Fritz Farkle (i think) and SPARKLE FARKLE.....Each time I get out all my sparkly Christmas decorations...this show comes to mind...I know...how weird is that! Anyway....have been busy sprucing up the house for the holidays.
Don't buy any new decorations anymore....at my age...I just want to dispose of things. So...I get out old favorites and reuse and redo them in various ways. ALTHOUGH....if I keep taking things apart...I just might need to get a few new things to last for Christmases to come.
I've had this big Snowman for years...won it as a giveaway from Laurie Ann's Vintage home...thought he needed a little color since he is all white....so added some red things...and he fits right in.
Had this old wire ribbon from last year...and simply wrapped it around an old clear vase....instant sparkle. The berries are from an old wreath I took apart and saved various pieces.
These old chemists bottles are perfect for displaying my star Christmas lights....and of course...I'll never part with my funky old Moroccan lantern.
We have a wet bar in our living room that we are not particularly fond of...but I find....if I simply put out a silver tray and lay some clear lights on it......instant sparkle...for next to nothing.
We don't have our tree up as of yet...as Brad came back sick from our trip and I have been busy nursing him with home made chicken soup....but do plan on doing the tree this Sunday with my beautiful grandson's help.
Will post about our wonderful trip after the holidays....as we are all a flutter here getting ready for Christmas.
Hugs to all,
