Sparkle crack

December 5th, 2011

I love the holidays. LOVE them. I LOVE the hustle and bustle, the merriment and merrymaking, the making and the sewing, the gifting and the prezzies, the ornaments and decorations. Most of all I love my family and friends that go with all the holiday goodness.

I also love stopping to smell the eye candy. Rest. Resting. Respite.
Refueling my tank.
Sparkle crack - Christmas ornament from Magpie Ethel

Fueling some more - tank is just about full.
Sparkle crack - Christmas ornament from Magpie Ethel
The cutest Christmas tree ornament ever!  I got this gem from Magpie Ethel at her booth at the Laurelhurst Winter Bazaar yesterday.  It’s on it’s way to a new home, so I may have to hunt Magpie Ethel down at Crafty Wonderland next Sunday for some more sparkle crack! Once you go sparkle…

    Soooo cute Ms. Zombie! I have a very similar little elephant that’s ceramic from my childhood — the trunk is a ring holder (photo here: http://thimbleanna.com/images/2011/Photography/Jun4.jpg) Happy Bling Hunting!

    I don’t know what is better you referencing sparkle crack or the ornament.
    All I know is that I love all things that could be referenced as sparkle crack and if loving them is wrong I don’t want to be write.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
