A Little Bling!

I found the fabulous, yet broken glass light at the Lumen Christi sale for a whole $2. After realizing just how broken it was, (a glass arm was completely broken along with other items) I decided to disassemble is and use parts for other projects (eventually.)

First up, I added a little bling to my dining room light. An original part of the house, I've never been totally in love with it, but after adding a few prisms, I'm feeling it. Btw, I've seen the prisms at antique stores marked $2 -$3 a piece, so that's why I had no problems plopping down my $2 for a broken light.
Oh, and this is just silly, but I've found a good way to use up the Easter candy. Assemble, 20 seconds in the microwave and you've got yummy goodness.

I want to come over for leftover-easter-candy-smores...

the bling looks great on your light. smart thinking.

(I also appreciated the elaboration about the crystals being $2-$3 apiece at the stores so I could better appreciate the bargain you found!)
