Its Thrifty Thursday!! Hurrah!! My idea for thrifty Thursday started with a not so thrifty habit of mine. I love Somerset Life Magazine, so when mine came this month, I was charmed, as always.
In one article about Susan Frick, she showed a couple of trophies that she had glittered. Now if you know me much at all, you know I love glitter, especially the German glass glitter that tarnishes.
I knew I had this black glass vase sitting and not selling at the mall, and wondered how it's love cup shape would look glittered. I added in a silver plate sugar bowl, that is love cup shaped as well, to partner with the vase. Susan had put a clock on the front of one of her trophies, so I went searching on Graphics Fairy, and thought the French Word Fleur De Lis would be a charming addition. I sprayed the vessels with glue, in sections and poured on the glitter. For the front section, I applied the applique after spraying the glue, but before the glitter. Now I just need to wait a 'while' for the glitter to tarnish to be as wonderful as the ones in Somerset Life. You can check out Susan's blog to take a peek at her wonderful creations. The trophies are a ways down her right side bar. Have fun!!
