Make Your Holiday Sparkle

I love this front display table. It is ALL about the sparkle! Mercury glass is such a fun way to update your holiday decorating and it looks beautiful all year long. I also love this Santos. For a couple of years now they have been a small obsession. We have several different ones in the store but I love this one's facial expression and she has good hair. Most are really just a helmet. This girl has braids.

This gorgeous crown is really a royal memory crown. The ribbons have hooks at the end where you can attach pictures and mementos. It makes for a very elegant and special display.

Another beautiful crown, perfect to incorporate in a centerpiece or possibly as a tree topper.

All of this royal glittery goodness is brought to you by two wonderfully talented friends, Debbie and Shea, the Gilded Life girls. I met them last Spring when I attended an art event in their restored church which served as their most beautiful home in Dallas. They have since moved and I'm working on Austin to buy it for a combo home, store, law office and non- profit headquarters. It's a stretch but a girl can dream.

This spring, I was lucky enough to spend an entire week with them at the French General Chateau Getaway. I just realized I never posted pictures from that trip- I need to. Shea taught one of her famous beading classes and Debbie a beaded flower posy. It was so much fun getting to spend that week with them and hopefully, they might even make it to Paper Crown in 2013! Keep your fingers crossed ladies.

In the meantime I am so thrilled to have some of their products in the store and you need to check out their blog, www. whathappensnext.typepad, if you have not done so. It is addictive, I promise.

Come see the Gilded Life ornaments, crowns and jewelry. They are the perfect gifts for that friend that loves to sparkle!
