Holiday Sparkle!




I purchased this large antique French Empire Dome Shade on Etsy a few months ago.  It is so elegant and sparkles in the light.  I was looking for the perfect holiday centerpiece and couldn't find anything I liked.  Then it hit me....  turn this upside down and use it as a bowl.  I filled it with some of my favorite vintage Christmas balls and mercury glass ornaments.  I will eventually use it as a light fixture but for now it looks wonderful on my table.

Love this! How pretty to maybe put a soy votive candle underneath and let the sparkles shine! So pretty!
