So Simple, So Pretty

Remember my garage sales scores from
                                      HERE            &              HERE
 I got the Party Lite glass for $1 and the ornaments for 50 cents a bag/box

I used all the purple & black balls for this wreath


But the mosaic and swirled ones I saved to add to my Non-traditional display.  Look at the colors on that baby!!!  The picture really does not do it justice...they are gorgeous!!


I just added all the mosaic and swirled ornaments to the glass...so simple, so pretty.


There are 'bubbles' in the glass...so cool! 

Needs something....don't ya think??????

I found these beautiful peacocks at the bottom of the box of the ornaments I bought....haven't quite figured out how to display them with the ornaments...what do you think?  Any ideas?
I forgot to take a pic during the day, so I had to use the flash for this pic...I'll take more when I'm completely done. :-)

Cost of supplies - $1.50
Time spent to make - 10 minutes
Something so pretty that was so simple = Pricele$$
I party every week with these ladies....go check out their sites...they ROCK!!

  6. So pretty! I'm jealous of your $1 garage sale find - I would love to have a big glass like that but don't want to pay a lot for it!

  14. I love how simple this is. A while ago I thought about how cool this would be for a winter wedding if you were to get personalized ornaments (ie names and date) and fill a vase with them. That way everyone gets a cool favor and at the end of the night your center pieces are gone!
