Sparkles in the Darkness

Sparkling flower in the darkAs I walked by the Christmas tree one night, I noticed something shining in the darkness. The lights from the tree were causing the gold decorations above the window to sparkle in the dark! I thought it looked awesome, to I decided to take a photo. I love the colorful sparkles shining in the darkness! Not only is this a great way to add interest to a room, but it also reminds us that there is always light in the darkness (hang in there!). Happy Holidays!

(Merry) Christmas Tree

Christmas TreeIn celebration of today, I’ve included a picture of my Christmas tree. Every year I decorate it using a different theme. This year’s theme: sparkle! Every bulb I used has an element of sparkle to it (glitter, shiny beads, sequins, etc.). I find that having a theme every year lets me be more creative-I often use bulbs I wouldn’t have ordinarily used. You’ll also notice the bulb garland and gold bells with ribbons (like in a previous post) on the windows. Do you decorate with a theme? If not, give it a try next year! Merry Christmas!
