Have Yourself a Glitzy Little Christmas!


Recently I stopped in at Illuminations at the Pepper Place. It's a great place to find unusual lighting fixtures of all kinds. This trip, I was taken with the tinsel tree and the gorgeous ornaments.  I learned that these baubles came from the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, and are no longer available for sale.  How nice that we can all enjoy them right here!

Yes, they are beautiful, and thanks for sharing them, since we can' buy any! Now that my kids are grown, I should invest in some breakable ornaments!

Lovely ornaments. Seems like someone would copy them. Copyright laws I guess.

Quelles jolies boules de Noël. Normalement, elles sont rondes mais celles-ci sont ovales ! C'est très original!

Oh Marley,
