Why am I taking pictures of my chandeliers?



I'm not really sure... they just make me very happy. You know how I feel about anything that SpArKlEs!!!!!!!!!! I'm not sure if you can tell from the photos, but I still haven't taken down the icicles and snowflakes that were hung from them last Christmas!! UGH! Didn't I just recently have a conversation with someone about this? The hidden, leftovers from the holidays? About how occasionally, I run across a tiny elf or reindeer or whatever~ that may have been tucked away in that secret spot~~ in the dead of summer!!!!! Pretty funny... I guess if I didn't have so much crap, things would be so much easier to find and put away! :) I must admit, though... the chandelier "danglies" were planned...I don't think that I even had the desire to take them down. Ever. (and still don't~ I like 'em that way) Why, how convienient, the holidays will be approaching again soon.... One less thing to decorate! I like the silver and whites~ AND It makes me feel a bit cooler looking at them on hot days! Yeah right.............. :) Lame excuse, but at least I don't still have Christmas lights hung outside of the house, right? :)!
Hugs, Christina

One of my neighbors has her Christmas wreath up until the week before last and yes, it was a real one. It was the color of rust! I don't know why she bothered, she should have just spray painted it green and left it up for Xmas! I had to giggle when I saw that she had taken it down though. I've been waiting for 41/2 months to see how long it would take her. Maybe she'll do it again this year and beat her old record!

Hi Christina! here another chandelier/sparkle lover. We have that saying: if you don't tickle yourself, no one else does. But now I would like to change that into: If you don't sparkle up yourself no one else does! Please leave them. Every commenter loves them so just enjoy!

I'm guessing it is probably pretty complex to dust around your house! Here I am being all practical and neglecting to see the beauty *sigh*
